PM (Former Employee) – Main Office – October 24, 2017
Main focus is not for their client's best interests, but mostly for their survival as a company, and ego's of those 'chosen' to be important (mostly those in house). Employees are not managed with respect or dignity, and this comes from the top down. Hours are long, limited support for attaining client expectations (yet punitive repercussions if client expectations not met), and less than optimized work place procedures and training.
Overall Clinipace is a good place to work. Some management is unprofessional and not mature for their roles, but generally the people and culture on a day-to-day basis is manageable and inviting. CEO is awesome and very involved! Cares a lot about his employees.
*Pros* Nice location. Free sodas. Coworkers are willing to help. Flexible schedule. Unlimited sick days. Full vesting in retirement plans in three years.
*Cons* The healthcare coverage is lacking compared to other places I have worked. A recent, rather concerning amount of attrition (losing at least 1 employee almost every week) causes excessive workloads for those who remain. They do not seem to value their employees. The culture is very much “sink or swim”.
*Advice to Management* Formal training should be provided for all entry-level employees and those new to management positions.
Proposal Manager (Former Employee) – California – March 2, 2017
After only 2 short phone interviews and no real questions asked of me, I was offered a job as a Proposal Manager. It seemed that they needed to fill this position quickly as this group was very busy. Once I started, the role was mostly a Budget Analyst and RFI research job, not a proposal manager, which to me meant writing proposals. Given I had alot of experience writing proposals in various industries, this seemed straightforward. I did not have any experience creating clinical trial budgets (very high level and complex) from scratch. I let them know that and they said training and "shadowing" would be provided, but it was not. I was thrown in to create multi-million dollar budgets for very complex trials with no training. Needless to say this was very stressful. I don't feel they represented this position well and asked me enough about my background for this to be a good fit.
Home based, provided all necessary equipment
Actual job duties not defined accurately, job title misleading, no formal training offered

Human Resources Specialist (Current Employee) – Morrisville, NC – October 3, 2014
Clinipace is awesome! I work in the headquarters office and have been so impressed with the attitude, flexibility and family like culture Clinipace provides. It is a professional organization, but at the same time everyone is very laid back. The company has grown tremendously since I’ve been here (since Jan/2014) and will only continue to grow – it’s been amazing to watch. Everyone is motivated and wants to see the company succeed. I truly love my job and the people I work with.
Growing mid-size company with lots of growth potential in your field
Legal Intern - Corporate Counsel Group (Former Employee) – Morrisville, NC – September 25, 2014
As a legal intern, I was exposed to a wide variety of projects. Most of the day is spent redlining documents in contract negotiations with sponsors, principal investigators, and site institutions. There are also several conference calls with project managers and sponsors to follow-up on project status reports.
A fellow attorney and I also successfully drafted a Letter of Intent to acquire another CRO operating in Germany with a quick 24-hour turn around. Although the work can be somewhat repetitive, there is hardly any down time from start to finish.
Clinipace Worldwide was a great place to work. This company is setting new trends within the CRO industry from the new and innovative project is chooses to participate in, to developing its own Clinical Data base as well as setting new market trends within the Onocology Pharmaceutical industry.
Professional (Current Employee) – Morrisville, NC – March 17, 2014
Clinipace is a fast-growing company with great potential to become a mid-size CRO powerhouse. I work in the headquarters office and have been impressed with the culture, upper management, and especially work-life balance. Employees work hard but atmosphere is laid back, unlike other corporate environments I've worked in before. Hope that the company continues to keep the small office vibe even as they continue to grow.
great office environment, excellent work-life balance
Director of Global Biostatistics and Programming (Former Employee) – Morrisville, NC – February 20, 2014
Co-workers were wonderful and pleasant to work with, My Biostats and Programming teams were cooperative with great team spirit and willingness to work together to get the job done on time and with quality.
At Clinipace, I feel like my contributions matter and I'm respected and my opinions matter...even to the upper management, which is very rare.
I love that we have an amazing work-life balance here and a great group of colleagues. I know a lot of companies boast about this, but it's true at Clinipace--we are a global company with numerous office and an ever expanding work force of more than 400 employees. But somehow, we maintain that small company feel--where people know who you are. I'm very happy to be a part of the Clinipace family.

Clinipace has proven to be the most welcoming and supportive environment of any CRO I have encountered. I have witnessed a dynamnic senior management team who seek and value ideas and contributions by all team members. It's so refreshing to be part of such a motivating team.
