    I have been working at Theradex full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is an open door policy here. Everyone is on a first name basis including senior management and the board of directors. Anyone you talk with will tell you the people here are great. They are dedicated caring and friendly. The advantage of a company our size is that you aren’t stuck in just one job function. It’s more like an entrepreneurial environment. If you have a desire to do something different, or learn about something new, you have the opportunity to do that here.

    Cons

    There are opportunities to collaborate cross departmentally but you have to ensure you can stay focused on your core responsibilities. Demands and deadlines of CRO work can be a challenge but this is common in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the focus on improving technology to continue to streamline processes and make work more efficient.

    I have been working at Theradex full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People are Great! No doubt about it. These are some of the hardest working most dedicated people I've met in the industry.

    Cons

    Just when you think it can't get any more difficult, it just keeps piling on.

    Advice to Management

    You're going to lose clients as well as employees if you don't take a good look at yourselves. I'm almost fed up.

    I worked at Theradex full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people there are really smart. Hard working and dedicated. They provide opportunities and pretty good training for entry level CRAs.

    Cons

    The pay and bonuses way too low, not competitive at all. Work load was not always balanced.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more and good peopl will stay.

    I have been working at Theradex full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great team members and very open, flexible environment. Management really takes the time to listen to employee ideas and genuinely cares about their staff. You do not have all the politics of a large company which is nice. Team members work hard but skills gained are highly sought after and you learn a lot. It's rewarding to be part of a team that is making such a positive impact.

    Cons

    There is turnover like any other company but a few staff members have left and come back which says something positive about the company as well.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Flexible scheduling and working from home. Promotes from within. Excellent benefits, particularly the tuition reimbursement program.

    Cons

    Computer systems are not being used to the maximum potential, which creates a lot of manual work processing.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on maximising the various computer programs that are available to automate many of the tasks that are currently processed manually.

    I have been working at Theradex full-time

    Pros

    Employees are nice and look out for each other. Staff members try to promote a family-like environment, which makes it easier to come to work everyday.

    Cons

    Very low salaries compared to other companies, favoritism is displayed by members of the Board, no career advancement, unprofessional behavior (gossiping about former employees, etc) by clinical operations leaders, a high turnover rate that is unlike most companies, unrealistic expectations of employees, and LOW SALARIES.

    Advice to Management

    Work on making your employees happy. Do not wait until good staff members resign before you decide to appreciate their hard work. Stop using the same employee to write "positive" reviews about the company.

    I have been working at Theradex full-time

    Pros

    Employees are hardworking, very friendly, and care about each other, unlike members of the Board. Unfortunately, that is about it.

    Cons

    Unprofessional and immature behavior from the "Board" during meetings and client visits. Crazy workload and low pay. Lack of employee appreciation until an employee resigns. Human Resources is a joke. Silly job titles/promotions that make employees act like they are more important than they really are, outdated salaries, very very very behind on technology, and an extremely HIGH turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees about what needs to be done to make Theradex the company it USED to be. Stop using "lack of communication" as a reason why employees are disgruntled. You know it is more than that.

    I worked at Theradex full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ok company to start working for. That's about it.

    Cons

    Very small company. Numerous layoffs, and high workload. Not a smart move to go here.

    Advice to Management

    keep good people. Don't fire long term employees because you are cheap

    Pros

    small company size, benefits are good, can work very independently as a home-based CRA, good place to get your foot in the door as a CRA with only hospital/coordinator experience

    Cons

    Training for CRAs is poor; it is a figure it out and sick or swim environment. Absolutely no opportunities for growth as a CRA; they want to keep you as a CRA and have you do nothing else. They don't value CRA time or effort, this is not acknowledged in any way especially not financially. Time spent getting to/from airports, waiting for delayed flights, etc. is your own time and is not billable. Each department functions independently; there is no interaction even though everyone should be working together. Sometimes you are overloaded with work, sometimes you have nothing to do. Work tasks are just made up on the fly; no one is ever sure who is supposed to do what. Projects are managed poorly.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with a standardized model for CRA career development and give CRAs options to do other work if they want (project management, data management). This will help CRA retention.
