Not a good company to work for
Account Analyst (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHOctober 16, 2014
Upper management is cult-like and does not promote internal advancement. You basically do what they tell you. Difficult to advance. All processes and software are internally developed so if/when you leave, you have obtained no skills that are attractive to employers. They do not provide severance and require a 30-day notice when leaving.

Management does not follow company SOPs, horrible job!
Regulatory (Former Employee), CincinnatiAugust 12, 2014
Pros: free lunch, pretty building
Cons: poor management, no advancement, cliques, nepotism, useless hr, hazing of new employees
I would never recommend working here- unless you work in HR or IT. Interviews are misleading in that you are told that you will be busy and there are different management styles in the team. What they don't say is that you will work beneath at least five different managers- including your direct supervisor. This would be OK if each at least conformed – more... to the SOPs set forth by the company. People do not socialize unless in the select cliques, which are primarily rooted in nepotism.

Forget filing a formal complaint to HR- unless you want a wrongful termination.

Save yourself the misery and mental health concerns. Go to another CRO. – less

Daily activity
Senior Intern (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OHMarch 11, 2014
Pros: free lunches-salads
Not much interaction between co-workers.
Training for the department isn't strong, learning is on your own.

Great work, beautiful building, horrible office environment
Regulatory Submissions Coordinator (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OHFebruary 5, 2014
Pros: free lunch, new building
Cons: short lunch, poor management, negative office environment
Management is very poor in the Clinical Operations department and it seems that this is common knowledge, but is not acted upon. I would never recommend someone to work in this department. The rest of the company seems fine, it's very clean, new, and the technology is all operable.

Company is run heavily on nepotism
Anonymous (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OHJanuary 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

Challenging

Tough to work for senior management. Benefits and compensation has become less competitive over the years.
