    Pros

    They hire freshers so if you have difficulties getting your first job they will take you at the lowest possible salary

    Cons

    You will not learn anything there because their management does not know anything about state of the art CRO business and there is no budget for external trainings
    Lots of politics behind the scenes if you dare to speak up they will either get rid of. Ou or start humiliating you
    Unbelievable behaviors

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and value your people you are in people business not selling screws

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

    Pros

    Work life balance is great. Work is fairly easy

    Cons

    Pay is way under midpoint. Tech stack is very dated. Managerial staff have little desire to actually propel the company forward from a tech stand point (though they talk about it al). Most long term employees are stagnant and okay with just doing what they are supposed to. Not a good place for mentors or people who want to advance their skill set

    Advice to Management

    Value your IT/Development staff more. Take a closer look at managers and CTO to see if they are actually are moving (or trying to move) the company forward.

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

    Pros

    Fast growth, opportunities to grow professionally, Active/Energetic workforce, co-workers make it enjoyable to come to work. Campus environment and amenities are great compared to a typical office environment

    Cons

    Unique company culture can be difficult to navigate for some, still operating with a lot of control from the top

    Advice to Management

    Procedures for making decisions can sometimes be slow, which is not practical as we continue to grow. Layers need to be peeled back in some instances to improve efficiency and build trust with people in positions with management responsibility

    I have been working at Medpace full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    All employees start with 3 weeks vacation plus ~8 holidays, 1 week sick pay, free lunch (salad, pasta, veggies, soft drinks). Bonus nearly every year, fitness center and trainer on site.

    Cons

    Health insurance expensive, unless you are single and healthy. Some groups seem to not be managed well due to turnover and mandatory overtime.

    Pros

    Good benefits, PTO, coworkers are great. Dependent on manager/department

    Cons

    Some functional areas are lacking proper structure. Losing employees on a regular basis. Transferring to another department can take several months once you are eligible.
