Corporate culture has declined with too much focus on financial bottom line

Former Employee - Senior Director, Global Head in North Wales, PA

I worked at ICON full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Exciting projects across a wide variety of therapy areas and sponsors

Cons

People are not valued as they were 5 years ago. Having been a global department head, my compensation was okay but generally the company has become very tight fisted in rewarding its people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Innovation and quality suffer when you focus too much on margins and don't value your people

    Former Employee - Study Start-Up Associate in Horsham, PA

    I worked at ICON full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You could wear jeans everyday. Benefits were okay.

    Cons

    No promottions for experience, all about the money no concerned with employee growth. Favoritism across the Study Start-Up department. Some receiving 2 promotions within 1 year. Very, very cliqueish, if you are not part of the in-crowd or cool with someone from the in-crowd you can forget about ever being promoted. No work/life balance, you are assigned more studies than can be handle by one individual, At ICON you are just a head count, nothing more. Important company information was passed via word of mouth prior to getting official notice from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management needs to take a closer look at middle management.
