1] Per year Hike percentage is good (if your relationship with your manager is good).
2] You can expect a promotion in every 2 years again depending on your managers review and your own performance and hard work or smart work. Again depending on how well you showcase yourself.
3] HR policies are well defined.
4] Flexibility of office hours (you can opt for Morning, general and afternoon shift). Choice is again partially on your manager.
5] Dept processes are well defined and they provide good training.
6] People are helpful and easy to work with.
7] Not good for talented freshers but a heaven for non talented freshers who has no hope of getting a job outside.
8] Very less onsite option even if there are Managers opt to go in them not employees.
9] Job security is there unless you are a very poor performer or you had a heated argument with your boss or offended him in a very bad way.
10] They will provide you trainings before they assign you work.

Dislikes

1] If you are an outsider and from outside Andhra Pradesh or telangana then the biggest problem you would face is culture shock. 99% or the employees working here are from these 2 states. You have to speak in their language and converse otherwise you will be tagged as an outsider. In short too much regionalism. No diversity and inclusion at all.
2] Your per year hike, growth, promotion or other opportunities depends on a larger extent on your manager. If you are not the kind of person who doesn't like to butter people then you won't succeed.
3] Entire organisation control is with few people sitting in the top level of management and they are treated like Gods and can hire and fire anyone at the blink of an eye.
4] No transparency in hiring, no matter how good the candidate is if there is a second candidate who has any relationship with any higher management he would be hired without any second thought.

My manager at PAREXEL was a gem of a person and I enjoyed working here. This is a huge organization and there different people with different managerial styles. I was happy with my managers. Had a good work life balance and wonderful learning and understanding of assigned jobs and tasks.
Parexel has all the systems set up so you don't need to recreate anything. Just follow them.
Has good transport and food facilities which are free.
Has flexibility of timings and even wfh was based on my choice. Again depends on the manager.
Gives you very good exposure to different clients.

Dislikes

Hikes on salary were very less, specially to our team. There were a few teams who received good hikes.
Employee engagement activities are very less. Only a annual day once in a year is the only celebration.
Being a huge organization you play a negligible role.
Promotions and growth in our team was very rare. Depends on your team again.
Facilities and HR policies need to be better for the sake of employee satisfaction.

Work

Work was interesting for the first year, but obviously becomes monotonous after a while. Now it's boring.

If it comes to the Manager wise and teammates you will find this is a good place to work, there wont be any micro managements and this is truly depends on your Manager. You can take monthly 2 work from homes. Company provides you the Cab and Food facility. They will provide you proper training before you were allotted with a project. They will provide you decent incentives if you are working in Night or evening shifts.

Dislikes

I dont like the Fixed shift timings here. There are lot of politics internally here, it completely depends o your Manager. if there is no good rap with your Manager then politics and escalations will start on you. even a small thing will lead to loss of your promotion or a good hike at the time of appraisals. The growth is slow.

Work

Parexel is a Very good place to work. Company provides you good benefits like Cab facility, Food and Insurance. Parexel has a very good work culture, employees will help each other in work. Parexel provides you the Leaves and work from homes.

Company has good work culture, Provide good work life balance. Not many technologies. Recommended for someone from life sciences background.

Dislikes

No career growth, Weak appraisal system. Job security depends on employee's package. No threat of job security for mid-level or junior level employees as pay is already less. Poor HR Management, No good connectivity with employees. Terrible transport system. No innovation except appraisal stunts. Mostly no travel opportunities.

Work

Validation of business rules coded in oracle plsql.

Frustrating work, team politics, poor management of company, wrong people selected for top positions by original owner. No growth. Partiality in salary. Most Of The scientists and physicians are not having genuine degree. Average stay of a employee not more than 1 year. They give bad feedback to next organisation you wish to work.

Work life balance is good, despite the fact that career growth is all dependent on personal relationships with managers. Also pay structure is fairly good

Dislikes

At times you find filthy management decisions. Lack of substantial planning. Favoritism is one worst things you find across the teams.

Work

Worked for couple of years with Finance. Job role was Fpna-Project Management

Giving respect to every employee. Following professional ethics. Free food and cab. Friendly culture, fighting for employee rights when they are eligible to get their benefits and giving space to pregnant women and options to do any shift.

Dislikes

Except one manager and associate director... No complain on company

Work

Hectic at times due to low staffing... But no forcing or being behind us.

In a professional tenure of 16+ years, I have worked for multiple organizations- 6 to be precise, but my tenure at PAREXEL has been the longest, I guess that summarizes it.

Dislikes

Though it isn't something that I dislike, it is an area every individual has to work on- Training. At PAREXEL you have to take initiative to learn anything new. All facilities are available, but its the individuals interest.

Parexel has changed a lot compared to the previous years. We wish that parexel should realize their mistakes in 2018 and take care of thief employees and their benefits....... The number of employees resigned in the year 2017 will give the best answer for the performance of parexel and their care of their employees.
