    I have been working at Worldwide Clinical Trials full-time

    Pros

    A company that truly believes in its mission and the importance of the work it does. As a mid-size company, you have the opportunity to know and interact with the leadership team as well as have direct line of sight to the results of your work.

    Cons

    Some executives are newer, but with new leaders comes great opportunity for new ideas and vision

    Co-workers (everyone works well together and is respectful of one another).

    I have been working at Worldwide Clinical Trials full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work from home opportunities, depending on manager.
    PTO is generous.

    Cons

    Workload so high cannot use PTO.
    Those in higher positions are disrespectful and bullying, no consequences.
    Workload so demanding led to health issues, and many other coworkers complain of similar health issues due to the stress.
    No support from managers.
    Confusing processes and overall fear of technology.

    Advice to Management

    Use technology to help cut timelines, don't pressure employees to do things beyond their control in an attempt to cut timelines... Support employees and do something about the employees that bully and disrespect others regularly.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. Good benefts

    Cons

    WCT study team leaders can be bullying and disrespectful. Management does not stop it, and harrassment is allowed to continue. No training. Processes are not followed, causing a lot of re-work.

    Advice to Management

    Support your employees. Do not allow workplace harrassment

    Pros

    Exceptionally great management, lots of PTO for full-time jobs, full benefits, lots of room for growth and promotions. They care!

    Cons

    There are definitely politics at play higher up in the company, but it’s never malicious or cut-throat. Performance and meticulous attention to detail or else you may get sacked fast.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep doing what you’re doing!

    I worked at Worldwide Clinical Trials full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits (medical/dental/vision), generous work from home opportunities.

    Cons

    Inconsistent direction across many functional areas. Extremely weak, incompetent, and unprofessional project managers. Lazy CRAs, little to no room for advancement. Very sketchy upper management, and outdated clinical applications that makes you job redundant and wasteful.

    Advice to Management

    I'd be really surprised if this place is still in operating 2 to 5 years.
