"Great Company!"
Current EmployeeClinical Reseacher
Like most clinical research and biotech companies, Lotus is face-paced and exciting. I've worked in the industry for almost 20 years and the company has a great reputation for the work they do and I really enjoy their site and CRO combination model, which clients do as well. My manager and team members are fun to work with and the overall management is fair and good at running the business.

Current EmployeeClinical Research Associate
The worst place I’ve ever worked. The only concern is how much money the company brings in a year. They do not value their employees. Very high turnover rate. They can careless of trying to keep their employees happy. Always short staffed and you end up doing work that you are not trained on or not in your job discriptuon. The managers a not supportive and do not encourage room to grow. The company will say whatever they need to say to a sponsor in order to get a study even if the information they are giving is inaccurate, for example staffing. They will say they have adequate staff when in reality we are always short staffed. They put nurses in harm’s way by not having enough on the floor to safely dose patients. I do not recommend working here. They do not value any of their employees.

"Greedy Company"
Current EmployeeResearcher
This company does not value their employees. They do not believe in work life balance. They take advantage of their employees and work them to bone. They don’t encourage growth. They can careless about your health, safety and well-being. They will over work you! They do not value employees and tell you anyone is replaceable.
