Really great training and career development opportunities.
Open door policy on any given issue.
Transparency with quarterly goals, revenue, and company future/ outlook.
Internal Quality Issue tracking database for all study-related issues and audits.
Indication/ Therapeutic area-focused business units for clinical staff all the way up to ClinOps directors. Everyone is approachable.
Diligent focus on task assignment and accountability; encourages "can do it" mentality and provides tools necessary.
No annual bonus for Clinical staff not completing monitoring visits. There are various incentives for conducting observation visits and the days spent at an IM or face to face visit with a Sponsor, but it really doesn't compare to an annual bonus. Agree CRAs should take priority in compensation/ bonus structure, but to only hand out merit increases each year to everyone else is a bit of a bummer.

If you put yourself out there and are good at your job you will be promoted if you push for it.
Training is limited so be ready to hit the ground running.
Like all CROs work is due the day before you get it.
Advice to Management
A bit disorganized between departments.
Provide more hands on training and external training to help with retention.

There is a lot of support from the company when learning new roles. Line managers and project teams are on board with helping you to succeed.
Different departments can feel like you're working at a different company. If you get in particular departments, the experience can be completely different. Each project is different, as well. If you have a good PM, your project will be smooth sailing. If you have a new PM, who doesn't set boundaries for the project, you can easily work 50+ hours a week trying to keep up with all of the extra work on spreadsheets and reports.
Advice to Management
There are reports which pull from company systems, these are the reports that should be provided to sponsors. Ad-hoc reports are a lot of extra work and can end up being very expensive when you look at the man-hours everyone spends in getting them submitted every week. The company systems provide the same information, just with a 5 business day delay. The delay is worth all the extra hours that you'll be saving your budget from. If you agree to provide ad-hoc reports to sponsors, expect for your budget hours to be in the red by the end of the study. There's a reason company systems provide the reports they do.
