I'd never go back
Call Center Agent (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDMay 24, 2017
Unfortunately, the cons of working in the PAREXEL call center far outweigh the pros. The pay is dismal, especially in light of the heightened expectations about call volume.
Pros
Solidarity among co-workers, some culture benefits like amusement park trips
Cons
Low pay for expectations, departments seem to compete instead of work together, bad problem solving skills

Great Benefts, Salary but communication could be better
Facilities Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Durham, NCMay 10, 2017
Been with Parexel for 5 years and I love my job. Great middle management and most of the upper management are great as well. Fun, exciting and always on the go. Just like any company they are always changing. The upper management which I have respect for a lot of times in serious issues does not let it's employees know what is going on.
Pros
Free Coffee, Great Benefits
Cons
None

Constant Fear of Layoffs
Senior Clinical Database Programmer (Current Employee) –  Billerica, MAMay 8, 2017
This company has telecommute opportunities and flexible hours.
Team atmosphere and work load varies. After working here several years though the constant fear of layoff is a huge negative.

Productive and well-paced area to work
Imaging Assistant (Former Employee) –  Billerica, MAMay 5, 2017
Your standard 9-5 job, with a very slow start because they have to train you with all the programs and ancillary objects you need to familiarize yourself with. Most enjoyable part was that there is a food truck that comes once a month from Augustas Subs and Salads and it's amazing!

Not a welcoming work environment, but plenty of opportunities
Live Study Manager (Former Employee) –  Deerfield, ILApril 12, 2017
It's not a very cool place to work, that's for sure. The compensation and benefits are competitive, with opportunities for a bonus. The company offers a lot of opportunities for advancement.

Too Big for Quality

Company is facing rapid growth through acquisition. Leaves little time to invest in employee or efficancy development. This also creates a gap in quality of our service. Unable to work efficiently with volatile organizational structure.
Pros
Some work from home flexibility

Not enough time to develop employees

Mediocre
Senior Clinical Monitoring Associate (Former Employee) –  Durham, NCMarch 22, 2017
It's a great place if you have an experienced manager. If not, it can be very challenging. Pay is good but doesn't make up for the lack of consistency and organization within the departments.

Observational Research Specialist (Current Employee) –  Billerica, MAMarch 6, 2017
In the short 7 months I have worked for the company, I have learned a ton. I did not expect the career to be as lonely. Working 75% by myself, without human interaction.

Learned Clinical Data Management
Clinical Data Manager (Former Employee) –  Waltham, MAFebruary 20, 2017
This was my first Clinical Data Management job after working as a Marine Biologist for 10 years. I was trained well. This is a very large company, but I felt I could go to my managers at any time. Although we were in cubes management encouraged "visiting". Hardest part of job is it is seriously meticulous work and your work gets audited before submission to FDA..
Pros
Good Workplace Atmosphere
Cons
Long hours sometimes
