Flexible and fun workplace
As a Project Specialist I arrive at work at 8 am and knock off at 5 pm. When I get to the office I look through my emails and plan for the day ahead. From there I work, and go to lunch for 30 minutes at 13h00. My day typically consist of Project Management tasks and filing. I also communicate a lot via email, IM, or telephone with colleagues in various parts in the world. I learnt a lot, particularly in managing a project and working in a team to achieve the milestones of a project. I learnt a lot regarding first time quality in what I do. I also enjoy solving project related issues, which requires of me to be in constant communication with team members on a project. The management at PAREXEL has taught me how to handle the expectations of 2 different managers. For example, I have a line manager who expects me to complete my duties for the organization, and I also work under a project manager who expects me to deliver for our project.
Pros
Flexible
Cons
Late hours on certain projects

I learned team work and professionalism .


Helping each other when there is a lot of work team spirit motivating each other and encouraging each other .


Hardest part is when everyone is working facing the pressure alone because im working in a production lab it can be busy and hectic with batches to label and QC's and STD.


Most enjoyable part of the job is always good environment good people good Management structure and good team they always support and make you feel special and at home.

Great experience, however no room for development
It was a great experience working for both PAREXEL and IQVIA, however currently there is no more room for growth and would like to immigrate to New Zealand and further my growth and development within the Clinical Data Management Industry. Besides for the Growth there is also a lack of work life balance which is another reason for a new experience within the Clinical Data Management Industry in New Zealand.

Productive company
Review listings, compiling reports, attend meetings and training's when scheduled, complete daily tasks that is on hand. Correspond on mails from sponsors, liaise with management on issues, we are a diverse company, the hardest part of my job is when i can't complete a task on time and due to system failures. My work is very demanding and i love my coworkers for the support they provide me daily.

Allowed to work from home
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.
Pros
Long Lunches
Cons
Long Hours

No work No growth
Some days would be productive than others, reason being other days there would be minimal work available. This is because the company over hires employees when there is not really much work to do. Typical day would be checking my work availability (matrix) and resource the work accordingly. Reply to any client emails and make phone calls. I acquired some skills working at ABC, like time management, working under pressure, communications skills and the handling of data. Most importantly quality work. Working in the Pharmaceutical Industry was something totally different for me but it became a challenge as I wanted to learn more. And after 6 years I knew the company very well. I enjoyed that for half the time I was there. The company lacks growth and development for its employees. And underpays its stuff.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
No growth and development

I learned a diffrent side of nursing and PAREXEL gave me a opportunity to grow in myself.
We opened with "planning" and "updating" meetings most of the time. Each sister working on her own study. It was a lot of computer and admin work everyday, planning, meetings, QC work e.g. Some days we had screenig days of subjects/tial participants and some days profile days. Management: excellent
Co-workers: excellent people to work with and the best team work! Planning and problem solving. I did good on problem solving and planning.

The most enjoyable part was to see the outcome of all my hard work and a succesfull study at the end of the day.
Pros
you can manage your own time and do your own planning. It was a office job that I really enjoyed.
Cons
Very long hours and short time lines.

I worked from home and only went to the office once a week
I start early and can work until late as I am home based. I learned very much regarding regulatory and ethics submissions. I also customised a lot of ICF's for initial studies and even more for amendments. I enjoy working at the office as well. The co-workers are very friendly and helpful. We are understaffed and work very hard. There are a lot of sponsors to get accustomed to.
Pros
Pension, Medical aid
Cons
Long hours
