Fast Paced International Company
Payroll Administrator (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 8, 2015
Daily challenge and fast paced made the day go by fast. Never a dull moment. I enjoyed working with many co-workers and loved making my deadlines. Audits were a breeze with efficient data and never had any issues on finishing any of the financial audits. Loved the flexible hours and the help with working remotely at home when needed. Sometimes communications were not relayed on a timely manner but were captured when deadlines approached. All in all, great company to work for and the people were a pleasure to work with.
Pros
flexible hours

Poor communication and direction. Friendly people
TECHNICAL IT DIRECTOR (Former Employee) –  Ascot, UKSeptember 25, 2013
Definitely not a boring place to work. Loads of exposure. Constant randomness, lack of company direction and comunication by senior managment leaves people in the dark and creating own solutions. Uncompetitive pay and rewards , lack of job related training.
Pros
friendly people on the ground
Cons
lack of support and direction. penny pinching a serious issue.

Good People fighting against inefficiencies
Clinical Research Associate (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 20, 2013
While there are some high quality people to work with, the company is in a state of transition with many inefficiencies and places where there needs to be major improvement in order to competitive with the market. Salaries are not in line with the industry.

However, with new management, changes are on the horizon to hopefully change these issues to position to company to be competitive with the larger CROs. It may take years, but they are moving in the right direction.
Pros
nice people to work with
Cons
unorganized, unestablished processes, company is in state of transition

Privately Owned, Stay Away
Global Training Associate (Current Employee) –  houston, txJanuary 10, 2013
This is a privately owned business that is not run by business people. You are forbidden from working from home and are subject to the exceedingly strange whims of upper management. Stay away.

Mid size CRO
Clinical Trials Associate III (Current Employee) –  HoustonDecember 5, 2012
Coming from a large company and then transferring to a mid size one was a big adjustment for me. I was used to working and meeting new people. Sure, the salary is better here but the benefits don't compare.
Pros
great salary
Cons
location is horrible
