    I have been working at Parexel full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fantastic direct colleagues and direct managers, home office, flexibility, part-time possible

    Cons

    Way too high workload for a single person over a long period of time despite various requests and attempts to get support bringing the workload to a reasonable level. Full manager incentives never paid despite business achievements and personally constantly going the extra mile. New business acquired before resources are in place. No room for personal development due to extreme demanding daily workload. Poor work-life-balance.
