    I have been working at MedAvante full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    MedAvante began a tremendous growth surge in the fall of 2014 behind the launch of Virgil. The growth has been extreme over the last 3 years. Growth creates stress but it also creates a lot of career opportunities. Further the growth and influence of MedAvante allow us to recruit higher quality talent. We definitely need more resources to keep up with the growht.

    Cons

    After MedAvante was acquired a new CEO was installed. The new CEO needs time to prove himself but so far his skills seem limited to operations and project management. He doesn't seem to bring a strategic vision or any sense of people leadership. So far people are taking a wait and see approach but seem underwhelmed.

    Advice to Management

    What is the strategic vision? Also, the new CEO needs to get out and talk more to people at all levels - he needs to show he cares what each person is doing and whether each person has the resources to keep up with the work.

    Pros

    Tremendous team spirit and the ability to make a significant contribution to helping people. This company is changing the way clinical trials are run by improving the quality of outcome data and the reliability of results. It's a privilege to be a part of that and helping to find effective treatments for diseases that affect so many people around the world.

    Cons

    Fast growth requires the ability to stay focused and carry a heavy load, which can be difficult for some.

    Advice to Management

    Do everything you can to preserve the culture and mutual respect that have allowed the company to grow to this amazing point. If you can do that nothing will stand in your way.

    Pros

    - Flexibility in time management;
    - Employees' work quality and expertise are considered and valued;
    - Transparency in employees' appraisal;
    - Streamlined procedures, clear competences and responsabilities for each role;
    - Good internal communication;
    - Good work-life balance;
    - Good salary and bonus.

    Cons

    - Precarity: for the majority of the CTS team members the amount of working hours and the duration of the contracts are defined to accomodate the projects the Company is involved in. The employees do not have any control overtheir possibility to pursue their collaboration with the Company or to progress within it in this sense, even though work quality is an important variable.
    - Work can become repetitive and a little tedious.

    Advice to Management

    Encouraging interaction and reducing the differences in engagement between the US team and the EU team could help in strengthening the employees' cohesion and sense of inclusion.
