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

    Pros

    Parexel fosters a very professional environment with a talented and friendly management staff. The career opportunities are immense and most employees are very well compensated for their efforts.

    Cons

    You have to be prepared to work very hard to excell. Most upper level employees put in well north of 40 hours per week, they are still in the process of expanding and probably need to hire more people to balance everyone's workload.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and don't be afraid to promote from within,

    Pros

    Management is great. It's like a family. They understand family issues and are very accomodating when their employees are in need of assistance - both in and out of work. The company has good training and encourages continuing education regularly.

    Cons

    The pay could be better, but this is the cost of having been given the opportunity to enter the clinical trial industry. Promotional opportunities are usually good, but the company is affected in economic downturns. They do their best when promotional opportunities are not feasible due to financial concerns and make it a point to continually stay in contact with their employees about the company's status.

    Advice to Management

    Doing a great job - please keep up the good work!
