    I worked at Medpace full-time

    Pros

    A very young, ambitious staff that is fun to work with. Benefits are decent with a good work-life balance

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for personal and professional growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper, upper management needs to be less involved on the day to day operations and continue to look at the big picture. Also, there needs to be more recognition of some weak links in the management staff.

    Former Employee - Contract Specialist in Cincinnati, OH (US)

    I worked at Medpace full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Has nice perks like gym, free lunch, and food trucks. Building is clean and brand new.

    Cons

    Your salary will be (way) below market standards, you will not get promoted quickly or move up even if it makes sense and the department needs it. The red tape in this company is ridiculous. Bad supervisors get to stick around while undervalued employees that make a difference get fed up and leave. You won't be eligible for a raise until 1 year after you work there (for most departments) and HR purposefully schedules your yearly review one week before you're year anniversary. So you can't even get a raise for another six months when your next review is scheduled. Its sneaky things like this that show you that Medpace does not really value it's employees. At all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company is growing quickly. While the lower levels grows upper management refuses to change. Major readjustments must be made!

    Former Employee - Clinical Research Associate I in Cincinnati, OH (US)

    I worked at Medpace full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are good. If you work at the office there is a nice workout facility and free lunch. After training you are able to work from home.

    Cons

    The Manager's are not flexible, do not give honest feedback, talk negatively about employees/ position/ company, and expectations are unclear and be prepared to work long hours. Cannot bring new thoughts or ideas- they don't care to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None of the Managers are on the same page. One will tell you one thing and another will tell you something completely different.

    Former Employee - CRA  in  Cincinnati, OH (US)
    Former Employee - CRA in Cincinnati, OH (US)

    I worked at Medpace full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great training for CRAs, very structured

    Cons

    Pay is much lower than industry standard for regular FTE, added on the expectation to work 60+hrs a week. A very strict non-compete agreement keeps employees from leaving

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most employees are not willing to devote their entire life to working for a company, especially for low pay. Focus on work/life balance rather than burn out your employees

    Pros

    Very structured, positive, great learning opportunities

    Cons

    Pay is below industry standard (very below), the non-compete required to sign at hire is extremely limiting as to where can work 12 months after employment ends, and if you are good at what you do, expect to work 60+hr weeks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work/home life balance keeps employees loyal

    Pros

    Free fitness room, free lunch, benefits are decent, salary is decent.

    Cons

    Management makes promises they can't or won't keep. Very capable and bright employees are undervalued and unchallenged as promotions are not based on merit so much as popularity. Training is nonexistent. It's sink or swim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to value employees who are bright and seeking the opportunity to learn and advance.

    I have been working at Medpace full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Benefits: Free lunch everyday, onsite gym, secure building, and pretty good health/dental insurance with different savings plans like 401k etc.

    Cons

    If your not the Barbie Doll type don't waste your time...they say training is supposed to be 4-6 months but for about half its really a judgment of 4-6 weeks. This company really doesn't give you a chance to improve, gives no warnings before discharging really good employees. Just be cautious before accepting their offer, because it can really hurt your chances at getting another job like this one in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is willing to help, however you have to seek the help. Even if you do it doesn't make a difference if they will keep you on or not. They simply don't give their employees a chance to improve their skills...even if the job is something new.
