    Pros

    remote work, have good CRA support with inhouse CMAs.

    Cons

    too stuck on system tools which can overburend monitors and team, need to integrate sstems and stop making individuals metrics be based on systems that constatntly break or in cases where you have more that the allowable number of sites the company will cut those out so they do'nt look as if they are over working you but you don't get recogniition.

    Advice to Management

    consider reviewing the number of site the therapeutic area they fact that people work over 8 hours and only get paid for 8 hours and support your team.

    I worked at PAREXEL full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Knowledgable management. I am sorry I do not have any more "Pros" to offer.

    Cons

    Too much travel with sub-standard equipment. There was no work/life balance it was only work.

    Advice to Management

    Know that the more sites a CRA is given the less time and attention they can spend with each site. Be aware of the ratio of sites/CRA to ensure a successful study,

    I have been working at PAREXEL full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary is among the top in the industry.

    Cons

    Poor training. No support for the new hires. IT helpdesk takes a long time to respond to issue requests. Managers are not accessible, they are too busy with meeting and beeing out of office to help support the CRAs. Resourcing or project allocation is erratic. They will overload you with protocols and make you travel long dsitances (something that was not revealed at the interview!). Clinical Leads for the most part do not know how to manage projects effectively and use the company systems, which is sad.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your CRAs on how you can improve to fight high tunrover. Don't forget who pays your salaries!
