    Pros

    Home based position, no need to go to the office every morning.

    Pros

    The company name value is pretty good, and the salary is not that bad.

    Cons

    The company makes you super busy, and work overtime. (But no compensation for that.) There are so many communication chain, so it makes workflow so slow.

    Pros

    Satisfactory pay. Work from home.

    Cons

    I started as a Sr. CRA in a trial that's already ongoing. Study Manager and Project Manager provided minimal study training. Much of my work depended on my own self-study on the ever-changing protocol and reporting procedures. I took over sites from a former CRAs whom was much complained by the study coordinators and PIs. So starting from Day 1 I had to clear all the backlog left by the former CRA (unresolved queries and SAEs). The project team never addressed the sites' complaint. Study Manager was only responsive when Project Manager was copied in the email. Very badly organized project team.

    I worked at Pharmaceutical Product Development full-time

    Pros

    I was with the company for 6 years. I never have one difficult manager. I enjoyed working with them. They were all understanding about traveling job and having a family.

    Cons

    8 to 10 days onsite is industry norm, but the company is very focused on metrics.
    I also felt stagnant about career development. I was Sr. CRA II but there was no openings for higher position. They were all occupied.
