Best and worst factors

Best rated: Challenging Work

4.0

The best rated factor of Western Institutional Review Board is Challenging Work with 4.0 points (based on 2 reviews).


It is so insanely detailed that if you have a small amount of confidence, they will poke and prod it out of you. Be prepared to be "corrected" daily. Sometimes with attitude, sometimes without.
4
Constant changes to regulations and push to repeatedly reorganize business structure to show we were addressing concerns made the work very difficult. Conflicting duties and priorities made completing all assigned work at levels expected difficult. Little help or coaching given with any consistency. Leadership and management often unavailable due to constant meetings.

2.0

Repeated reductions in force. Formula used t9 decide who to cut not provided and reasoning not always entirely clear. Frequent restructuring and moving staff around. Business undergoing huge shift as WCG grows and RIFs possible as comoany has growing pains.

Career Development

Career Development rating

2.0

Career Development is rated with an average of 2.0 points (based on 2 reviews).


There is almost no room for upward movement. All that is offered is ability to learn more complicated functions to achieve minimal pay increases and risk being removed from the work you enjoy doing based on business needs. Training often cancelled due to business needs. Leadership positions cut during reduction in force. Managers rarely moved out of management roles.

They don't let people move, even if it is to their benefit.
