Boring work, rude management
Typical day at work includes answering phone calls and making calls to get people to do studies. Very bad system, we are given lists of names to call of people who do not answer or who are not interested. The team leader, supervisor and manager of the department are very condescending and rude. They do not have any training on working in management setting and it is very obvious. Do not care about you and laugh in your face when you bring up concerns. There is a rule that if you miss your break by more than 15 minutes that you lose, but what happens if we are on a phone call at the time of our break?
The other employees are very nice, but management needs to be replaced. They make working there very hard.

Typical CRO
Technicians and analysts are poorly compensated. Benefits are not even mediocre. Alta is where it is at because of lack of competition so basically it grew because of other CRO's shortcomings. Hours are long, and compensation for the lower positions is just lacking. Some improvement was made, but much more needed. Not all managers are the same and working in some teams can actually be fun.

Worst company to work for
Lousy salary, on call position,no benefits offered after the probation period,poor management and no motivation and appreciation of the hard work.No normalized schedule.Each day is different so you can't plan anything in your personal life.If I could give zero stars to this company I would.

Qc technician
Thought it was a good step into the clinical research industry but understood that CrO survives when they have studies. Lots of work but not a nurturing environment to be in. Was disappointment in the lack of professionalism on the part of management. Two faced environment. The colleagues are chill but management needs to be replaced/trained/ retrained/supervised by a third party.
Salary is horrible for Bach degree holders.

Horrible for LPNs who work constantly.

Disappointing.

Not invested in their employees but all over the clients.
Cons
Looooong hrs, lowww pay, loss of personal freedom

Terrible management
Do not work for the maintenance department. No matter how hard you work or how much of a model employee you are, you are not even just a number to them; they will try to prevent you getting anything out of them that isn’t bare basic pay. For example, they’ll tell you the job is full time and that you get benefits after three months - that is a flat out lie. They will keep your contract “part-time, on-call” for as long as they like, because it saves them a few bucks. Be prepared for your boss to lie to your face, threaten you, make all manner of sexist and racist remarks, and not listen to a single word from you. If you try to warn him about an impending problem, he’ll ignore you - and then blame you for it when the problem inevitably begins generating complaints.
By far one of the worst employers I have ever wasted my time and sincerest efforts on; I would advise just about anyone to steer clear from this place.
Pros
Occasional leftover meals
Cons
Literally everything

No matter how good you are, you are just a number at the end of the day.
Poor management exists in this company. One cannot complain about the working issues and provide his opinion to higher managements specially when there is a disagreement between colleagues or employee and his manager since they believe the person who is important to them not the person who is right. There are lots of gossiping around and there is no team work.
Pros
Organized
Cons
unfair management
