    I have been working at Ockham Development Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salary, IT department support in some areas, Hr support.

    Cons

    Upper management does not care and does not know the daily activities of lower management. Middle Management is not capable nor educated on what a CRO is to be. Middle management not capable to retain sponsors. No initial company training, no technical support and in some areas no support at all. Chain of command a blur. Middle managers issue conflicting orders to CRAs. To many middle level managers are involved in personal issues and do not care about issues related to Ockham.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to be involved is daily activities. Middle management is running the company out of business. Middle management focus is on personal gains and not company wide advancement. Middle management are not responsive to sponsors needs and that will sink the company fast. If this company wants to become the oncology experts they need to hire oncology experts and not hire people out of desperation.

    Pros

    Approximately industry standard pay
    Great place if you have been employed there for numerous years

    Cons

    Legacy employees and senior leadership lack current industry skill-sets
    Legacy employees and senior leadership do not readily accept any ideas
    Not easy for anyone to assimilate into
    No current data management technology for their industry

    Advice to Management

    Do not hire any new employees until the current leadership has the ability to understand the industry they are in.
