    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at PAREXEL as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    I learned much coming from the pharmaceutical end of business to the research end of getting medications approved in the USA.

    Cons

    It was only a contract position.

    Advice to Management

    Never accept contract, even if told you will be given another position, as chances are you will be laid off.

    Pros

    Superb place to start in the pharma industry as there are lots of highly competent and knowledgeable people from who you can learn alot from. What you learn at PAREXEL will make you very valuable at pharma and biotech companies, especially locally.

    Cons

    There is alot of turnover because clients are always cherry-picking staff. There are also alot of "silos" so departments aren't always working together but often they compete against each other instead.

    Advice to Management

    better incentives and rewards for good performance needed. Also better support for staff under alot of pressure to perform for clients.
