    Medpace has a career path structure unlike any organization i've been a part of. From day one at Medpace, I knew what my future could look like and what I need to do to get there. My management team has been an advocate for my career advancement and provides continuous feedback so I always know what's expected.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Medpace full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being able to keep travel miles and hotel points

    Cons

    1. Getting micromanaged
    2. Corrupt CEO that berates company if stock is low and he feels employees aren’t “doing enough”.
    3. Horrible benefits that’s aren’t taken everywhere
    4. Not investing money in employees’ salaries . they work CRAs to the bone and pile on work . They don’t Pay CRAs a salary on par with other CROS

    Advice to Management

    1 Quit firing half the people you hire and then force the other half out with outdated practices .
    2. Hire trial managers that have been CRAs so they know what traveling 6 days a week is like
    3. Reward hard work with more than food trucks
