    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

    I have been working at Worldwide Clinical Trials full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    flexible working arrangements (home-based, partially office based possible);
    well defined roles and responsibilities in start-up which makes this hectic phase and cooperation between different functions somewhat easier;
    great learning environment - in-house regulatory intelligence is well-organized, 'hot-topics' discussed at the departmental meetings, people instantly share with the rest of the team any updates or knowledge they acquired on their projects;
    cooperation in the team is valued more then individual achievements (culture of team work and openness)
    low turnover in regulatory team (many people working 5 years or more) ;
    individual approach to each employee - workload, development needs reviewed regularly by managers during 121s; complexity of assignments corresponds to the level of experience (support given where needed);
    You are always listened to - regardless of your position, country, number of years with the company. People are encourage to give their feedback on the processes, share concerns or put forward their own ideas
    It is your competition that matters not how old you are, or in what country you are based (not the case in some other, more US oriented companies)

    Cons

    part time usually not accepted
    there could be more external training
