    I worked at Theorem Clinical Research (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It needs an overall in upper management.

    Cons

    Resources of people are limited so request to work overtime is constant. 50 to 60 hours/ week often to met timelines but no appreciation from managers.

    Advice to Management

    Now that the company is bought out by Chiltern, perhaps the left hand will know what the right is up to.

    Pros

    Home working, flexibility ...... You don't often get that. Management are switched on and genuinely care about the staff. No complaints

    Cons

    Not many really. Training programme when you first start is tough ...... Especially as you have to hit the road running

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Perhaps think up a new way to reward staff going the extra mile for you

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

    Pros

    Work from home, good people to work with, many with longevity with the company. Executives care about staff and making sure people have resources. Good project work. Those who are self motivated do well.

    Cons

    Poor middle management which leaves working staff frustrated and over worked with no relief in sight. Too worried about treating staff equally rather than fairly. Some people are in Management without any place in the report structure meaning they are not managing anyone yet they have AD or Director titles. Bad career options for growth as staff need to find ways to grow on their own. Employee development is not part of the environment. Staff are overworked and under valued.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure to make a clear path for career growth for staff and have accountability for staff who can't perform the role and responsibilities of the position they are in.
