    I have been working at YPrime full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible Work schedule and environment Love my boss and team Pay is good Nice office Benefits premiums are great

    Cons

    Overall the company is great and wouldn’t want to work no where else however, I think the issue with passing the growing pains stage is as follows: The Project Managers, Analyst needs to have better communication with the Developers. It’s seems that some Developers don’t even know the infrastructure of the clinical trial they are on and when speaking with the Project Managers they usually don’t either. I think the software should be one basic software that’s offered to clients and then add “special features” to each clinical trial that works for that particular client. This impose cleaner data, better and clearer communication across the whole organization not just some. Another issue I see as well is the clients for the most part has the say in how the trial is ran with the software but I think it’s need to be YPrime doing this. We are the company with the control right?

    I worked at YPrime

    Pros

    Benefits and pay are good

    Cons

    Hopefully remains the worse company I've ever worked for, a purely negative experience I'll never forget. I wish I could go back in time and read the negative reviews, because none of them seem to be resolved, no matter how many years old they are.

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, people are nice

    Cons

    This company claims to be a software company but has no idea how to properly produce software. They claim they are Agile but thier managers can't define the term. They think EVERYTHING is a developers job. They expect you to work 60 hours per week and deliver when they tell the client YES to EVERYTHING. Their best and brightest .Net developers don't know about architecture, and can barely use entity framework. The code is a mess with coupling between the service and UI layers. I could go on all night.

    Pros

    YPrime is a great company to work out, the management team has a great path forward, but at the same time, working to keep a small company, fun place to work culture, despite rapid growth. Amazing benefits for a small company, and great co-workers. Office politics don't exist here...

    Cons

    Tight working space due to rapid growth, but company already planning to move to a larger space.

    What wonderful thoughts; thank you for sharing with us! As the company continues to grow, we really aim to keep that ‘small company’ feel and are glad that is coming through. We have some more great ideas coming in the future. We're looking forward to sharing our new, upgraded Malvern office space with you and the rest of the team in just a few short weeks!

    We are so glad you are using the benefit of working from home! At YPrime we really believe that a balanced work and personal life will lead to happier and overall more successful employees. We agree that dealing with rapid growth is a challenge so are currently working on implementing additional training programs, increasing transparency in our communication, and building change management skills in our team. Our L&D team has created a robust New Employee Experience Training (NExT) program from scratch that we were able to implement at the end of 2018 and continue to expand/refine. We are hoping this will allow new YPrimers to acclimate more easily and provide them to tools and knowledge needed to ramp up quickly!

    I have been working at YPrime full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers and atmosphere. Pay is good and bonuses are given. They seem to promote and allow employees to move within the company frequently. Benefits are good. Same quality benefits as my last job where $200 or so was taken out of pay and it’s around $10 here. They listen to employees advice and make changes to improve things based on what employees say.

    Cons

    They say yes to every client request. Which can create extra work and having to work extra hours to meet deadlines.

    YPrime has worked hard to create a collaborative work environment, where our employees feel recognized and rewarded for high performance, so we’re glad to hear of your positive experience. We’re also proud of the robust, cost-effective benefits package that we’ve been able to put together and offer our employees. Going forward we will continue to evaluate and make improvements! We are committed to balancing client needs with YPrime’s internal capabilities, so we’re in the midst of making many improvements across the organization with how we sell, scope and manage work to ensure that we’re not setting anyone up for unmanageable situations.

    Cons

    -The company is growing rapidly, which results in frequent changes (not bad change; just inevitable with this type of growth) -Changes haven't been managed all that well historically, but there are definite improvements happening in this area -There's been a lack of formal training and onboarding, but with the filling of some new roles, the company has learning and development as a top priority for the rest of 2018 and beyond -The company has gone through some ups and downs in the past, which results in a bit of lingering insecurity, but with the current growth, success in the market, and strength of our pipeline, the company's future looks brighter than ever

    Thank you for all of your great feedback! We really strive to create a great culture at YPrime and are so happy to see that there has been success there. There has definitely been a lot of change here in the past year tied to our rapid growth. As you identified, we have onboarded some key players that are filling major gaps, and the L&D team has built an onboarding program that focuses on getting new hires up and running quicker than ever before. Your insight has been valuable! We’re really excited about the future of YPrime, and we hope you continue to provide feedback so we can continue to make appropriate changes and updates.
