Is the i3 rater training group any good?
Amy Veroff has been removed as head of rater training group at i3 due to poor management. The group is now back as part of the CRO and a new person was brought in to head it.
yes, and she almost got fired last year- something about some potential fraud or unethical behavior with a client company. HR wanted to can her
She is a lunatic who could not manage her group, its finances or track their business properly. She never did have capabilities to even get the CNTB going. Just ask Don Connor- he was let go and hopefully is back in academia successfully.
Amy Veroff is being fired. It is about time. She should have stayed in academia.
Kim is leaving i3.
forget i3 rater training. go with other company such as medavante
God NO!!! It's crap. Stay clear
not really. at least they know what they are doing. Also go with Medco, as they bought UBC
epharmasolutions has been doing a good job. they hired a bunch of clinicians from ubc a while ago
yes, they hired the ones Medco did not want to keep. either epharma or medco is much better than anything i3 ever offered or offers
the clinicians we have worked with at epharma have been there for 3-4 years. not sure about the medco comment as that acquisition only happened last year
The person who said ePharma hired the people that Medco did not want is way off base.
The comments about Amy Veroff are written by people who do not know what they are talking about. She was not forced out and there were never any ethical issues.
I have waited before posting--actually several months. I was at i3. I knew the group...and Veroff. There is substance to the allegations. I cannot speak to the scope of that substance but she was reported in to the regulatory compliance group on at least one occasion. I know because I was the reporter. What is stated above actually appears to be a separate incident so I can't comment directly about that one, but it would be consistent.
As for Veroff's management style, it is regrettable but true that she was a terrible manager--I would rather not say how bad--just very bad
It has been drawn to my attention that my name was used in an earlier post without my knowledge. Since this has been brought up to me several times over the years I just want to correct the perception. I left a directorship at an excellent research center to work at i3 because I thought they were a superb group and I was impressed with Amy's drive and vision. I have great respect for Amy's intelligence and skills. While we did not always agree, it was always an intellectual disagreement and I think we both got something out of the discussions and always came away with mutual respect. I also have nothing but good impressions of the others I worked with there, most being PhDs and Master's degree level, who I believe are now working for Inventive Health and cogstate (?). I was only at i3 a short time as I was let go as part of the sale of the division and have no hard feelings towards anyone. I have no current relationship with any of the previously-know-as-i3 group. I appreciate the good wishes from the person who previously posted.
