    Always overworked and don't get a lot of recognition of how hard you are working

    Redundancy in what must be entered into computer systems

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people and stop expecting people to get 80 hr worth of work done in 40.

    Former Employee - CRA in Austin, TX (US)

    I worked at PAREXEL full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    PXL has state of the art technology to perform your job more efficiently, good communication network and organized. They have acquired and/or merged with other CROs to grow to about 11k employess.

    Cons

    For my situation as a CRA there was not a quality of life balance, once you leave it takes months to close out outstanding expense reports, unrealistic travel expectations and metrics. Quality issues with monitoring often slipped through the cracks. Managers seem to be too intimidated to give you honest feedback in favor of playing games with site assignment and offerring more training, with hopes the performance issue will improve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The relationship with the separated employee is just as important as the relationship with current employees.
