I have been working at Parexel full-time (More than 3 years)
I've never worked for a CRO that has better project management than PAREXEL. CRAs aren't "bounced around" here; when assigned to a project, I have remained on that project until completion. The Clinical Monitoring Associate position (kind of like in-house CRAs) is extremely helpful to the monitoring group. PXL promotes from within.
Project teams are spread out globally, so there is some frustration with time zones. There has been moderate management restructuring several times in the 3 1/2 years I've been with PXL, which leads to changes in line managers more frequently than I'd like.
Advice to Management
Pick a management structure and stick with it; it can be frustrating to switch line managers every year. Aligning decentralized CRA with line managers based on geographic location is much easier on CRAs than aligning based on projects.
