      Just a job not a career

      Pros

      Decent benefits and okay pay

      Cons

      Management has no clue. Supervisors will throw you under the bus to save themselves. Very chaotic and unorganized, policies are changed so often it's difficult to keep track. If the supervisors don't like you or you are smarter than them, they will make your life miserable. Use the job for the experience and money but don't expect to make a career of it. You'll want to quit after a year or 2, if they don't fire you first for some made up reason. Near impossible to advance within the company.

      Layoffs are plentiful

      Pros

      The pay is good, benefits are decent.

      Cons

      Layoffs. The company is more focused on profit margins than on their people. Ever since we were bought out by a private equity firm management's decisions have been about reducing expenses to improve our margins. Layoffs happen, or they make changes to things like the PTO policy getting rid of any PTO carryover.

      Pros

      Good pay and decent benefits.

      Cons

      I never thought a management team could be so out of touch. Their approach is strictly reactive, vs. proactive. They only reach out to you if they perceive that there's problem with your performance, which means any interaction you have with them is likely to be a negative one. Oh, and if you aren't working on Sunday you are accused of not giving it your all, despite putting 50+ hours in every week.

      Originally great company--not so great under Express Scripts--yet?

      Pros

      IN being an Express Scripts company--a fortune 100 company--one would assume lots of growth and opportunity. Great people to work with, flexible schedule and work from home. Decent benefits.

      Cons

      Not enough resources for all the work coming in--getting way more overworked on top of the already standard CRO overwork. Although I have plenty of PTO--can't find the time to take--work/life balance is struggling. Not enough support from upper management to line managers.

      Pros

      Promotes from within and many positions have growth potential, very competitive wages, decent benefits, excellent 401k program, a "family feel" these colleagues are friends for life

      Cons

      the office could use a facelift in the original area, has been too long without paint and the carpets are worn, we've grown and expanded so many times, there's a lot of fresh new sections, but the original office space remains untouched

      Pros

      Benefits are decent for the most part. Coworkers are nice. KC office participates in corporate challenge and other community events.

      Cons

      Company is stagnant and cheap. Won't spend money to purchase correct systems or invest the time to do things right the first time. Way behind in time compared to other CROs. Clients aren't managed. Teams are expected to absorb tasks that stem from out of scope work . Studies are drastically underesourced Leadership is poor and functions in reactive mode. New systems are rolled out without establishing a standard and with very little training. Although management encourages participation in company functions and events (corporate challenge, monthly bday celebrations, chili cook off, chalk the lot) the time is not billable therefore your allocation drops and you are dinged for it.

      Can work from home and flexible hours. Nice people to hang out with after work. Decent benefits package is available.

      Cons

      Long hours, job never stops. Too many incompetent people who do not seem to learn from previous mistakes or lessons.

      Pros

      Good co-workers, decent benefits, nice location.

      Cons

      An unpredictable work week with no work-life balance. The work week is usually in the 50-55+ hour range but can be much worse at times. Overlapping projects\tasks to the point where it is not possible to multitask effectively. Flawed resourcing model; PMs, testers, and devs are almost always stuck cleaning up the mess from their previous project so they cannot start their next project on time. Management does nothing to fix the problems that everyone knows exist. There are significant time zone issues to deal with if you are in the London office that add to the long work days. Poor training, low morale; some friendly advice, avoid this company.
