Giving Something Back

52% of staff agreed

I am happy with the pay and benefits I receive in this job

MEU are a specialist clinical research facility working with the pharmaceutical industry to identify potential new treatments for illnesses such as asthma and emphysema. These treatments could be new or different combinations of existing medications. They conduct two main categories of clinical trials: early phase I that require healthy male volunteers to assess the effects of the medication on body functions; later phase trials that require volunteers who suffer from the medical condition that the drug is intended for. MEU believe the work they do in identifying potential new treatments for the future allows them to give something back to the community.

I have confidence in the leadership skills of the senior management team

MEU have an open door policy and encourage staff to make use of it. The company regularly let staff know that they value their feedback and ideas, hence we now have the ideas/suggestion box. A recent addition has been the company newsletter which they fill not just with news about the company but try to make it interactive with competitions and personalise it with items about individuals. This has been working really well, with staff wanting to get involved with the input/copy for it.

This job is good for my own personal growth

MEU's work Christmas Party is an event that is looked forward to each year. This is open to all staff and paid for by the company. Each year they have the party at a different venue. Last year it was at MUFC and was a spectacular event hosted in a marquee in the football grounds. They had over 60 staff attending and it was a particularly good event at which to unwind, have fun and get to know each other better.
