Critical thinking provoking duties with an amazing team to work with
Clinical Research Coordinator Associate (Former Employee), Fargo, ND – August 16, 2013
A typical day at Pracs would consist of some office time when the study documents are prepared, a few hours of screening individuals for particular studies or spending a few hours in the study rooms with the patients, the occasional visit to the lab and most importantly, constant gaining of new knowledge and skills. My Pracs coworkers are probably the best coworkers I ever had. There was nothing in particular hard about the job and pretty much everything was very enjoyable, despite the most random working schedule I had.
Executive Assistant to the CEO (Former Employee), Fargo, ND – April 11, 2013
PRACS Institute was a great place to work. Management was very supportive of staff and encouraged thinking outside of the box. Regulated by the FDA and other agencies it was necessary to follow SOP's and to maintain an ethical and quality based work performance at all times. I took part in a variety of meetings, taking minutes as well as contributing ideas etc. I especially enjoyed interacting with our clients and ensuring that there needs were met in a timely, efficient manner. Another aspect of my positions within the different entities of PRACS was supervision of various staff members ub tge Administrative area as well as Client Services. Unfortunately, the creditors of PRACS Institute were not interested in letting the company develop to its potential and chose to file Chapter 7 before it could gain its potential.
Support Staff Supervisor (Former Employee), Saint Charles, MO – March 27, 2013
Pros: free lunches, benifets, and vacation
Cons: the company closing down
Working for PRACS Institute was a good experience for me. I got to learn new things and worked with the best employees. When PRACS was busy I didn’t have down time. I loved being so busy. Taking care of the subjects was one of my favorite things to do. Everyone knew me and if anyone had a question I would always hear my name on the overhead. Everyone came to me if they had a problem or a question. My supervisor was one of the best people working for the company. If I had an issue with anything she would help me out anyway that she could.
Director, Clinical Operations & Site Manager (Former Employee), Saint Charles, MO – March 25, 2013
Pros: flexibility, quality
Cons: bankruptcy, not financial stable in the end
I loved working for this company. I was there for over fifteen years. I went through 2 company sales, one chapter 11 filing, and then unfortunately in the end, a chapter 7 liquidation. The company was flexible, had great staff, and I was proud of the work we produced
Staff (Current Employee), St. Charles, MO – January 21, 2013
Pros: great healthcare
Cons: lack of communication
A typical day at work is spent trying to cohesively seam departments and trial processes together across 3 different sites. Communication is a huge barrier between all the sites when trying to figure out best practices. Like the game telephone, you will get 3 different answers when talking to 3 different people about how to perform the same process. However, when something needs to be done, you can expect it to be completed immediately.
Most days were fast paced, stressful, and very demanding. I loved it! I learned how the relationship between the FDA and pharmaceutical companies work. I enjoy the spending most of my days with my co-workers, they helped make this company successful and memorable. The hardest part of the job was slow times, when we had no studies. I loved learning something new each day, and the different cultures ( customs ) I experienced.
