    I have been working at Worldwide Clinical Trials full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been at Worldwide for about 4 months. Prior to that I worked for a small boutique monitoring company. I was there for ten years, loved my job, loved the work, the diversity of study disciplines and working both drug and device trials. I traveled throughout North America and Western Europe. But, work became scarce for a while, and I needed a steady income for my family. Enter, WCT. They offered a great salary, they are small enough that you’re not just another CRA, and I’m lucky enough to have a great manager. Yes, they come with multiple layers of management, multiple and redundant processes, and way more in-the-office time than is sometimes necessary. But overall they are a really good company. In the last year they have renewed their commitment to quality, their staff, and their product. I believe that the top line management has a sincere desire to take this company to a best in class example of the value that a CRO can bring to the sponsor. The only complaint that I have at this point is that I was not assigned to the study discipline that I was being recruited for. There is still a bit of a disconnect between the resourcing staff and the study management staff. If you want to work for a CRO, have good solid CRA experience, and high standards, you should consider Worldwide Clinical Trials.

    Cons

    As noted previously above, very few cons

    Advice to Management

    Thin out the middle layers of management necessary to manage the processes

    Pros

    The environment encourages collaboration, teams are valued. Managers expectations are clear and deficiences are addressed in a timely manner. Training is emphasized and seminars are encouraged.

    Cons

    No real opportunity for advancement. Clear lines are drawn between lab functions and clinical functions in spite of assurances that we're all one big company.

    I worked at Worldwide Clinical Trials full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible, great colleagues, engaging work

    Cons

    Terrible departmental training, chaotic change, lack of direction

    Advice to Management

    Nothing wrong with change, but execute it well. My department had 5 heads in 2 years and change in model was very poorly managed. Little to no training given in new roles. Reciepe for disaster.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Worldwide Clinical Trials full-time

    Pros

    The previous management team in which most of them were fired was much more approachable and you knew the company environment was important to them.
    The salary and benefits are good
    Travel and expense reporting system was very user-friendly

    Cons

    No upward training for other positions
    A lot of employee turnover/poor resourcing for studies
    Hiring of unqualified employees just to satisfied a newly Sponsor project
    Systems and training are really bad or the system doesn't work
    Unable to have a balance work/life because you are overworked d/t poor resourcing on projects so you are always stressed.

    Advice to Management

    Do you really care about your employees especially those that have been with this company (which 80% of them have left) more than 5 years before you took over? Not!
