    Director, Marketing

    Premier Research does not have an employee in this position based in this person’s location. This false report has been flagged to the administrator of Glassdoor. Premier is committed to providing a safe and healthy work environment. We take accusations of workplace abuse and racism very seriously. Bullying in the workplace is unacceptable, and our employees have a responsibility to treat others with dignity and respect at all times. If you feel that you have been subject to bullying, speak with your line manager. If your manager is the alleged bully, then please report the matter to a senior manager, HRBP, or make a report via SafeCall.

    Good company trying to do the right things

    Nov 1, 2021 - Senior Project Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Premier is a good company that in the last few years has been trying very hard to move things in the right direction. Lots of ups and downs, but overall a good place to work - most managers are very visible and really do want employees to thrive and be supported. Lots of opportunities for career growth. Remote work not a problem and a lot of flexibility in schedule is allowed. Paid time off is generous and you are encouraged to take it. Most employees are good to work with, very nice and knowledgeable in their respective areas.

    Cons

    Often overworked. Lots of turnover in management and teams recently, so a lot of very green employees. Longtime employees are suffering in the meantime while company tries to hire and onboard leading to even more turnover. Quality suffers when workloads are too high. Some poor managers in recent years. No transparency around salary, and no bonuses for regular employees. Performance review process is still terrible, even though they have tried to overhaul it recently.

    Great Benefits But Not So Good Leadership

    Dec 22, 2021 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good Benefits. Pay is okay. People tend to be awesome to work, learn, and grow with. So many amazing people who are willing to share their knowledge and experiences to help make the team better.

    Cons

    Favoritism is the leadership style. Advancement seems opportunities are not always rooted in the recipient having earned them. And those that should have earned them are often left out. Core values are just lip service and only used to penalize the fed up employee, but not something that one sees readily in daily interactions. Diversity and inclusivity is also lacking.

    Leadership to avoid

    Dec 7, 2021 - Learning Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Salary, the compensation was competitive. CRO and Pharma pay well, this is why drugs and/or devices are expensive to develop.

    Cons

    I could share 100 reasons why you should not work for this company. Here are some considerations: Look at their turnover. it's a strong business model, but the culture and leadership drive people away or the task is impossible and they 'fire you'. If you worked at Q, Quintiles or IQIVIA, you should apply. You are a shoe in. If you worked anywhere else, you will never be good enough. It is a good old boys' network or a clique. Senior leadership is predominately white male from Quintiles. It is a very TOP down driven organization. Hierarchical. Where is the "People Person" on the corporate leadership page of the website? No reference to people leadership, Human Resources. Leadership manages by intimidation and the people people are not valued nor empowered. It is a very cut throat organization and you need to watch your back closely.

    Would not recommend - Run away

    Feb 8, 2022 - Clinical Research Associate in Morrisville, NC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There are no pros with this company.

    Cons

    Too many to type, but I’ll give a high overview. This company doesn’t care about its employees, the benefits are absolute trash, salaries aren’t in line with industry standards, there’s alot of people in higher positions that don’t do ANYTHING, they don’t respond to emails, they will run you into the ground with DOS, and nothing gets done when you escalate issues up the ladder. They claim they’re all about diversity and inclusion but if you look on their website, all you see are Caucasians on the executive board. Oh, they also don’t do raises or bonuses. They’re going to continue to lose people due to the acquisition of Health Decisions. Do not be fooled if you get an offer from them, you will hate it and eventually end up leaving.
