    Pros

    Great way to advance your career with a mid-size CRO. Hard working family atmoshpere. If you work hard and accomplish your goals you are rewarded.

    Cons

    The company does not have all the bells and whitsles of a larger CRO but there is also a lot less red tape you have to go through to accomplish your goals.

    Advice to Management

    The company does not have all the bells and whistles of a larger CRO but there is also a lot less red tape you have to go through to accomplish your goals to meet tight deadlines.

    I have been working at Premier Research full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Came from a larger CRO, as I know others did too, and this was a positive change. Workload is better, travel is more reasonable, and the people are great here. Feel like the people here are more genuine in caring about me and progression in my career here.

    Cons

    Most of the clinical staff is home-based, so if you're not used to being home-based, it could be isolating.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the current vision & mission!

    Pros

    Came here after being burned out from my last job. The company has made alot of improvements from my understanding to make it a great place to work. I've been very happy with the changes and my line manager has been great. My travel has been great and I like the benefits very much.

    Cons

    Processes could be a bit tighter, but that has already improved since I joined.

    I have been working at Premier Research full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Premier Research is smaller than other CROs I worked for which allows people to really make a difference. When I worked for larger CROs I felt like my ideas didn't matter and it was tough to make an impact or be noticed.

    Cons

    Some of the systems were a bit antiquated however there has been a recent investment in technology so this con is being addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep empowering people within the organization. We have a lot of smart people with great ideas. Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Great company! Definitely has less politics than most CROs.

    Cons

    The only downfall would be the systems but they are coming.
