I have been with KCAS for almost 3 years, starting here after my college graduation. I started at KCAS as an Analyst I, and I progressed through the lab career path to Analyst II. Last year I was given the opportunity to join the Business Development department as an Associate Contracts Manager. Working with both the Business and Laboratory teams has provided me a unique insight into all that we do at KCAS. I am excited to be a part of such an outstanding company that is truly making an impact in the healthcare world!

CD - Associate Contracts Manager

I started at KCAS right after college graduation. It’s been a great opportunity to learn about the industry right out of school and I’ve gotten opportunities to learn all different areas of the pharma department in my first year including sample analysis, method validation and operating the lcms systems. KCAS provides a lot of opportunities for growth for new employees because of the rate the company is expanding but is still small enough that everyone knows each other.

MH - Analyst I

I have worked at KCAS for about 2 years, and in that time, I have accomplished many things with the help of my KCAS team. Originally, I came to KCAS directly out of college to gain experience and knowledge about the pharmaceutical industry by working in the laboratory. In the first couple months working in the Pharma Regulated department, it became obvious that we were rapidly growing and willing to look within the company to promote valuable employees. KCAS truly encompasses the idea that if you’re willing to learn and work hard, the sky is the limit for your career. I was hired as an Analyst I and by years’ end I had received my first promotion. Going into year three I am transferring to our business development department to gain a wider perspective of the pharmaceutical industry. To acquire more knowledge in the business aspect of the industry I am also beginning classes for my master’s in business administration (that KCAS is helping pay for!).

PF - Analyst II

The KCAS culture and work environment is incredibly accepting, working alongside my peers has enabled me to learn from many perspectives and diverse backgrounds. My coworkers are also always finding ways to make the workdays more enjoyable with things like group events, silly games, or simply a nice chat over morning coffee. So far, my favorite KCAS memory is of dancing with work friends at the Roaring 20’s themed company holiday party last year!
