    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 (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    lower pay tan most CROs, but many incentive (pay out food per diem regardless of used), study bonus, performance bonus, they try to accommodate travel in your region and no micro management. Work was pretty easy.

    Cons

    low pay, increase is about 2-4% per yr, only a few are promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more staff and start giving competitive pay. Don't wait until we leave to give us a counter offer. Either way we end up returning for higher salary later when you rehirer us.
