Exciting work. Appreciative Management. Flexible work hours. Good Benefits

Benchmark does a lot of vaccine clinical trials as well as other studies. The vaccine studies are fast and furious. Attention to detail is a must. They have eReg and eSource which helps to ensure quality data and that things are not missed. Global SOPs are good as is their Study Manual. Opportunity to work hard on rewarding mission. New management put in place in 2022 which makes a HUGE difference!!!!

Pros

Good benefits for this industry: 12 holidays, 2 mental health days, 2 wk vacation, bonuses, coffee/snacks, paid health insurance (a big plus), eReg and eSource, 1 admin day a week as needed, remote off site help as well as in process QC. If one follows the process they will be successful.

Cons

Work load can go from intense to moderate requiring some overtime (especially during covid).

Too much micro managing

Much time is wasted receiving insurmountable emails referring to the same topic. The business development team lacks interpersonal skills and emails are received with a tone of harshness instead of a being constructive. Too much time is wasted finding the needed information to complete a task. There are a handful of great people but not enough to feel as though Benchmark is home. Will be seeking other employment soon.

Pros

The end of the work day

Cons

Emphasis on making money not on employees, too many barriers caused by contracts and budgets

Fun and family oriented.

Productive and fun company. All the staff and management are good to work with. Team players, everyone cares for each other. Be ready to feel like you've got another family and support. They have a softball team and they have a lot of fun.

Pros

Relaxed, non stressful working environment. Busy but not overwhelmed with stress.

Cons

Maybe a bit more communication company wide on how the Company is doing as a whole!

It was ok

Pay was decent but it was very disorganized. No real set training program and got thrown into the deep end immediately. Co-workers were nice and helpful though

Employees are not appreciated

I am leaving due to lack of growth, compensation, appreciation, and nonprofessional upper management-including the primary investigator. There are days you are expected to work through lunch and stay after hrs. When you request to use your PTO you get the 3rd degree and made to feel like you shouldnt be asking for time off.

Pros

Working with reputable sponsors

Cons

Long hours, micro management, minimal pay raises 1-2% only

Fun and friendly environment

Staff and management was very friendly and very welcoming. On the job training. Opportunity to travel and monthly incentives are a plus. Overall, this business is one I would apply to again

Pros

Staff was friendly

Cons

There are not any.

Excellent

Worked as an Asst. Coordinator working with data entry and patient communication along with progress notes. The doctor and nurses and other staff were a pleasure to work with. It is a fast paced environment but very rewarding.
