Clinical Staffing Reviews

A site which compares Clinical Recruitment Firms so you are able to select the best Recruiting Company to fit your staffing needs.

Advanced Clinical

Advanced Clinical lists themselves as a CRO, however in addition to their full-service CRO offering, they also provide a Functional Service Provider (FSP) strategy as well as an “on-demand” staffing solution to their clients.

One of the positives of Advanced Clinical is that they have over 17 years’ experience in the clinical research industry.  Their reach expands the nation, and they have a solid LinkedIn presence.  I noticed they have a blog and Facebook page, although neither seem to be very active.

With Advanced clinical’s client base and nationwide reach, I am sure they have clinical research professionals on the bench ready to be deployed on your projects at a moment’s notice.  However, while I am a fan of CROs and believe great quality CROs are an integral part of the clinical research industry, I am always cautious using a CRO as a staffing company.  I always wonder if the CRAs sitting on a CRO’s bench are part of their “A” team.

I have an article which goes deeper into my thoughts on this topic so I won’t go into details here.  I would just ask you to consider one question before engaging a CRO to be your staffing agency:  If a CRO recruits a great CRA, where do you think they are motivated to place him/her?

    Advanced Clinical is really good at always having active positions, answering all inquiries, and giving me career consultation when I’ve spoken to their recruiters. They’ve been a solid partner, and have sent me on a few interviews already. A great plus to me is that they don’t have a high turnover rate with their recruiters; the people I’ve worked with over 2 years ago are still with the company. Although I like Advanced Clinical, they haven’t placed me anywhere yet but we do have a great working relationship, and I’m confident they will place me someday. They always check in with me to help find me the right opportunity which I really appreciate!

    I’m a recent college graduate, and as any job seeker can tell you the job market is tough. REALLY tough. I wanted to work in clinical data management and I posted my resume on websites like Craigstlist, Monster, and HotJobs. I got hammered by tons of recruiters, and most of them disappeared after contacting me. At Advanced Clinical, one of their recruiters named Sarah set up an interview for me and was extremely professional. I ended up accepting a job without the help of a recruiter by applying through LinkedIn but I’m sure if I stayed with Advanced Clinical they would have eventually found me a job. I recommend them to anyone who may be searching!

    I finished a contract here earlier this year, and although they’re really nice people, you don’t get much feedback from them very much. The pay is alright, but that depends on their client. In my opinion I think Advanced takes a big cut but it is what it is once you agree to the rate. As far as benefits go, that doesn’t include sick days or holidays, just medical but it is good. I wouldn’t call that “full” benefits though. I have since found a new recruiting agency that offers the same pay but with full vacation and holiday pay and I’m more happier!
