Pleased so far. with Early Clinical-CRA

CRA II-ECD (Current Employee) Madison, WI (US)

ProsInteresting Work
Enjoyable Co-Workers
Little Manager Oversight
Plan your own Schedule
Excellent Flexibility in Travel Arrangements
Too much work for the present staff=opportunities to step in and learn new skills
Current director does make an attempt to understand the workforce and effectively represents employees for positive change.

ConsSame for all regional monitoring positions.
Lots of travel
60+ hour work weeks
Project management and operations management like to ping pong issues so neither has to resolve them

Advice to Senior ManagementCall the current senior director of operations for ECD. She understands how to make employees feel valued and that their needs are being considered. I have read the other reviews here and that seems to be a missing component among upper management.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
