    I worked at Medpace full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is well organized in terms of documentation of their policies and guidelines as well as their processes. Decent training programs for new CRAs.

    Cons

    There were too many expectations in regards to the number and type of protocols that one could manage. There was somewhat of a disconnect between the core management in terms of administration of personnel and the actual balance/needs of personnel needed for the workload depending on the number and type of clinical trials.

    Advice to Management

    Create better lines of communication between clinical project managers and mid-upper level leadership to allow better judgement and decision making.

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

    Pros

    It is a growing business, so there is opportunity for upward and lateral movement within the company. Free lunch every day is always a plus, management is sensitive to personal issues.

    Cons

    Too many layers of management, the CRA managers have too much control over responsibilities that are supposed to be related to the CTM.
    Your experience is strongly dictated on your manager, if you have a laid back understanding manager you will be fine but if your manager is strict it will not be enjoyable for you.
    There are drastic pay differences for the same job that they justify although it does not always make sense. (20k pay differences for the same work)
    You are very expendable as a CRA because they hire often and in large quantities.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a set standard for all employees job expectations to be equal. Manager A will hold their CRAs to a hire standard than manager B, so manager A will be more likely to have lower employee satisfaction and will fire employees quicker.
