    I worked at PAREXEL (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Some flexibility in working arrangements (e.g. WFH 1 day a week). Great location in Nottingham

    Cons

    Some misguided managerial decisions and acquisitions

    Advice to Management

    Listen to current employees and take the experience into account. Cut your losses and do not get entrenched in the problems caused by bad decisions. There's no point in forging on down a route that people know is wrong no matter how much money has spent to get to that point.
