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

    Pros

    - The atmosphere here is dynamic and fast paced. No day is ever the same so no chance to get bored!
    - Travel and workload is less than my previous company. Expectations of employees here are more realistic, meaning a better work / life balance.
    - Management are interested in progressing employees. It seems that they want to retain good staff here.
    - Exciting time to be part of Premier Research.

    Cons

    - You cannot blend into the background here so there is no shying away from challenges / situations. People here are very much treated as an indvidual and you should be ready to have an opinion and make a difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing what your doing! The company is in a really positive place at the moment.

    I worked at Premier Research full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good team work. Small company but closer work relationship. Attracts interesting projects from small and mid size bio pharma companies with innovative products. Projects were never boring.

    Cons

    Hard work unappreciated most of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward hard working staffs and don't be shy showing your appreciation, it is worth twice than boring appraisal paper work.

    I worked at Premier Research full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Pay was compariable. Oppitunities to advance and gain valuable experience.

    Cons

    Not a great work/life balance. PTO schedule wasn't great, 12 days total plus a couple federal holidays - but something like 5 of your PTO days needed to be used on Christmas holiday and no roll over. Work from home enviroment did not facilitate coorporation and it was difficult to complete assignements. Management would change and lay off entire departments to hire back a few of those laid off and start new teams doing essentually the same tasks.

    Immature atmosphere and inexperienced co-workers

    I worked at Premier Research full-time

    Pros

    Small environment lends itself to a close relationship with management and co-workers.

    Cons

    Small environment lends itself to "clicks" and unprofessional work relationships. The department in which I worked was also disorganized and underdeveloped. Standard industry practices in my experience there was not being adhered to rather the "Premier way". This practice led to a lot of turnover and inexperienced employee's.

    I have been working at Premier Research as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Learn a lot about business skills, how to write "Business English". A lot of great people here who are all very nice to me.

    Cons

    There is no perfect places. I think you should judge people based on their performance... not seniority level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advise is the same as the cons, but it's difficult because you can only oversee this much... I think an implementation of judging people by their accomplishment is better than seniority.

    I worked at Premier Research full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very relaxed atmosphere to work in. Not very much pressure unless there are some deadlines to meet. Excellent people to say the least.

    Cons

    Pay and management. Pay is not competitive or reasonable for American adults. Unless you are willing to scrape by look elsewhere. Management, upper management to be accurate, is barely communicative.

    I worked at Premier Research full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Small company with a potential of been a great place to work.

    Cons

    Poor management, lack of respect from management. Con employees with false hope for advancement. Clinical managers are inexperienced, rude, and no one holds them accountable. Line management is a joke, micro managers with no management experience. High turn over rate due to the politics and bureaucrats.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The vision for premier research is not properly executed by those put in charge to do so. Management should be more transparent.

    Came here after being burned out from my last job. The company has made alot of improvements from my understanding to make it a great place to work. I've been very happy with the changes and my line manager has been great. My travel has been great and I like the benefits very much.

    Cons

    Processes could be a bit tighter, but that has already improved since I joined.
