Laboratory Assistant II (Former Employee) – Chula Vista, CA – January 6, 2018
It was fast paced at times, requires critical thinking. If you put in effort and care, you will do well. I like working there although it is very expensive to live in California so I had to move. I commuted over an hour to work every day.
Clinical Research Coordinator (Former Employee) – Chula Vista, CA – September 5, 2017
This was a fastpaced environment where studies lasted no longer than a year and a half. The hardest part of the job was that the clinic was open 24 hours and you pretty much had to make yourself available at all times.
Medical Director (Former Employee) – Chula Vista, CA – July 14, 2017
I don't mind giving 150% when your work is appreciated and recognized but not the environment unfortunately. I loved the people that I worked with but management culture was difficult. Raises and bonuses were rare.
Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Chula Vista, CA – April 23, 2017
A typical day at work is usually busy the first hours of the day, but it really slows down after noon.
The hardest part is to keep up with very little training at the beginning, also schedule is very inconsistent, they cancell and add shifts with very short notice, schedule is modified every week you have to have an open availability which makes it really hard to plan your weeks with anticipation.
The environment is definitely the best part of it all, great staff you almost feel like you're family.

The supervisor are the worst they don't let anyone grow. The are unprofessional.they are the worst place to work. If you are considering this place to work.. you are going in yo an unsecured jobs . You don't know if you going to have a job the next week. If you have a family to maintain this is not a job for you.

Subject Recruitment Supervisor (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – July 2, 2016
Depending on the department, you will probably find different types of reviews. The department I worked in was great.I worked with amazing people and the hours were great for me. The compensation definitely needed improvement though.
Clinical Project Manager (Former Employee) – Chula Vista, CA – November 13, 2013
Profil is a fast paced phase I clinical research facility. I worked in clinical project management department. In general I found the people to be helpful and fun loving even though everyone is extremely busy. As a new hire who was provided very little training and it was extremely difficult to jump in and keep up with the pace and expectations. Many things are done on the "fly" and I often found myself reacting to situations and problems because there really is not time to critically think about next steps. Almost all the processes are manual and there are tons of details to remember. Time lines can change like the wind and you've got to be able to adapt just as quickly. Project Managers essentially need to be accessible 24/7.
is a busy place but some times it has his slow day in where we have the oportunity to catch up with most of our work
Lab Tech (Current Employee) – Chula Vista, CA – March 17, 2012
due to the nature of the bussiness we know that we will have a very slow time where we all get hours cut but if this was not something that comes as a given the company will be very stable for everyone
