I have been working at ICON full-time

Pros

"Brand Name Recognition" CRO Large number of resources Opportunities exist for exposure to diverse array of projects and work There are some truly intelligent people to work with

Cons

Too large of a CRO that change often comes slowly Divisions lack coherent and consistent communication and resource sharing model Management sometimes rewards tenure over actual ability or skill set There exists dead weight at various levels that should be exposed

Advice to Management

Become more transparent and involved in the ground level discussions of performance because this is a knowledge based service product we're delivering. Reward loyalty and retain talent via curated vertical pathway, career development via conferences and additional training /education, and recognize individuals who should be managing/mentoring people with those who definitely should not.

    I worked at ICON full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some nice perks like compressed days and good benefits. But that is all.

    Cons

    They became the company that is all about business, and don't care about the people. Used to be a great place to work, but it went downhill quickly as it grew.

    I worked at ICON full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Willing to explore new technologies. Employees tend to stay for a longer-than-average time. Good insurance in the U.S. and generous with awarding vacation days.

    Cons

    A con for U.S. staff is executive management consistently explain that it is very expensive to run clinical trials in America ... and uses that as an excuse to not expand headcount.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get your group managers to remember about work/life balance.
