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

    Pros

    There are none other than they will hire you even if you have no experience. If you are struggling to get your first job, apply and try to stay for six months so you can move on. I would give zero stars if this was an option.

    Cons

    Gossip ridden company with inexperience management that promote employees based on favouritism as opposed to any sort of skill. The pay is very low and the promotion increases are ridiculously low with no task changes, therefore the only change is a new number behind your title!

    Advice to Management

    Get in new, experienced managers who will be on the office floor to manage staff. Take feedback at exit interviews seriously. More than 50% of the department has left in the last year for the same reasons

    I worked at Medpace full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The local Stirling office. Full of a great bunch of good, smart and hard working people.

    The initial training and quick progression (for the first few years) to next level of job (if you have a good line manager)

    Getting to attend investigator meetings abroad.

    Bonus scheme (once you qualify and if you're marked highly enough at your review)

    Cons

    Lack of transparency and communication from the London and US headquarters.

    Promotions/transfers not fairly or professionally managed. Priority of professional development of the clinical operations team goes to London. This has lead to the unnecessary loss of a lot of good people, and a complete drop in morale.

    Personal development is dependent on your line manager. Even then, they do not have the final say.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting good people leave by treating them fairly, communicating better and rewarding hard work. If not, more people will leave and the reputation of the local office will continue to dwindle.
