Anonymous (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OH – January 4, 2014
Pros: free sandwich or salad bar lunches
Cons: job insecurity, nepotism
If you wish to work for Medpace, research the company first through its various court cases and wrong termination suits such as Medpace, Inc. v. Phea, LLC, Medpace, Inc. v. Biothera, Inc. et al, Zabell v. Medpace, Inc., Hornbacher v. Medpace Medical Device, Inc., and Partin v. Medpace, Inc. In the instance with Biothera, the president of the company – more... told the employees that Biothera failed to pay Medpace for work completed. The courts instead found that Medpace failed to the the work contracted. This resulted in many lower-level employees not getting bonuses in 2010, but the Executive Committee was exempt from this "belt-tightening" need of course.
Unfortunately at Medpace, nepotism is heavily the basis for continued employment. For instance, the three Associate Directors of Facilities are family, friends, or personal employees of the company president and vice president brought in to replace a vacancy. (One of these individual's previous qualifications is airline pilot.)
Filing honest, rightful complaints with HR can result in your termination since Ohio is an at will employment state. Managers look out for themselves as much as possible while encouraging employees to report on their co-workers.
If you are currently a Medpace employee, maintain paper copies of all records off-site regarding any yearly performance reviews and positive feedback. Also, consider working for a more responsible employer sooner rather than later. – less
