    I have been working at Parexel full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The ability to work from home, 401k and tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    I used to be proud to work at PAREXEL but with the recent restructuring and layoffs I have changed my tune. The pros no longer out way the cons. The company preaches first time quality but does not set you up for success. They are expecting the current employees to pick up the slack for the recent layoffs which has led to many people being overworked. Upper management needs to get it together or they will lose the people that actually keep the clients satisfied.

    I have been working at Parexel full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Fellow team members are very positive and uplifting to work with. -If you have questions , you can get lots of help from other team members for answers -Take your meetings from home -Role teaches you how to display effective time management.

    Cons

    - Lastly, high stress for no reason, and mostly due to upper management. -The training for SMT is not very effective and they expect you to cram a lot of information in your head within a small amount of time.

    I have been working at Parexel full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company has a good reputation. The Directorate listens to the employees. The company is sizable and global. There are progression opportunities available for you if you prove you are capable and hard working.

    Cons

    The progression can be over complicated - there are too many hoops to jump through. The workload is often poorly distributed. Support for new starters are not as good as it should be.

    I have been working at Parexel full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They have good benefits and there are some good people. I like the international aspect of the company.

    Cons

    Systems, processes, SOPs, and guidelines are bulky, hard to understand, and they are not efficient or effective. Every task seems to take three to four times as long at PXL, than other CROs. This has been given as a reason for the coming layoffs, which are at least the 2nd round of layoffs in less than 2 years. It seems that rather than looking at WHY people are having trouble with the systems and processes, they would rather lay people off and ship jobs overseas to save money. The site management team members seem to feel very adversarial toward each other and I have had team members be downright rude, un-business-like and mean-spirited with no censure. All team members are not treated the same. Upper management does not listen to other team members, even ones with a lot of experience.
