    Lots of work to do as with any job, quite a bit of turnover in certain departments can put additional strain on work load. Corporate advancement can be difficult.

    Pros

    Great flexibility and vacation benefits. A growing company with fairly strong job security. Management team is a plus. Overall client satisfaction is fairly high.

    Pretty poor growth opportunities. Fairly far behind in overall benefits especially for a global cooperation. Growth is challenging in a CRO environment even with high performance. Cooperate support is questionable. Development and alternate role experience is challenging despite it being something continuously preached.

    Reward your key contributors.
