Productive and enjoyable workplace
Senior CR Assistant (Current Employee), Uxbridge, ENGAugust 19, 2015
Pros: The ability to work flexible working hours to accommodate work-life balance
Cons: Long hours
Check emails and prioritise workload. Coordinate and organise meetings and book meeting rooms, arrange WiFi access for guests and hotel accommodation. Respond to email with requested information. Follow-up on telephone messages Update trackers and documents are necessary. File documents into e-folder for everyone to access if required.

I enjoy all aspects of the job. The hardest part is probably coordinating on-line meetings with people from all over the world in different time zones.

Very quiet and a little unorganized
Senior Financial Business Partner (Current Employee), Billerica, MAJuly 15, 2015
PAREXEL is an OK company to work for. They offer a competitive wage and good overall benefits. The company seems to be a little unorganized in their day to day business models, but is currently attempting to improve their processes. The office is very quiet and has little interaction amongst employees outside of scheduled meetings. The work/life balance is above average, specifically in roles that have the capability of working from home if need be.

Not a great place to work
Study Analyst Team Lead (Former Employee), Durham, NCJuly 6, 2015
Great pay, but culture of the company is horrible! I hated working here, the management team sucked. Working with the corporate office functional groups were not efficient. It seemed like we were working against each other even though we were on the same team.

Unstable environment
Manager, Finance (Current Employee), Waltham, MAJune 22, 2015
Pros: The job market is good
Cons: everything else
Since the massive layoffs in the spring and summer of 2015, the morale is down, the atmosphere is unpleasant and everybody is looking to switch it seems like. All finance groups were shuffled and their tasks changed, which made people feel insecure and wonder what is it exactly that made upper management think that giving people brand new tasks would make them more efficient. The management however keeps talking pleasant banalities to everyone to somehow keep afloat. Newcomers still believe the banalities.

Allowed to work from home
ACDP (Current Employee), Bloemfontein, FSMay 29, 2015
Pros: Long Lunches
Cons: Long Hours
A typical day at the office, there's always work. A person can get assigned close to 5 studies at once but with different timelines. I have learned that it's very very crucial not to keep your timelines as a result it can have a big impact on delivering poor quality work and on your PMD. So always plan ahead and keep your timelines. I have a great manager one of the best! He always looks after his people! Have the greatest team ever, we have a great relationship always open for new ideas and always innovative. Hardest part of my job is dealing with a very difficult("knows what they want") client and working under tight timelines. Good thing is that we're always open to help one another and we have the advantage of working from home, but it shouldn't be used inappropriate.
