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

Pros

Great benefits, great pay, good work/life balance, great people

Cons

It's fast paced and intense at times but good outweighs the bad

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More incentive given to people with really intense projects would be helpful but overall it's a great place to work.

    I have been working at ICON full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great vacation time, European style. Salary increase is minimal, at least in my experience. Maybe some people are getting nice increases if they're a star. But from what I've heard, you have to leave and come back or have another offer in hand 'if' they're willing to counter to keep you, otherwise, don't hold your breath. If you have a mentor or a natural ability to learn the business, then you've got it made. Otherwise, the learning curve can be steep for mere mortals.

    Cons

    If you're not patient, forget it. You'll only be frustrated. But if you're willing to do what they tell you, then you can last a long time. In the event of a layoff, I was told that you get a little severance, which is more than most companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management will decide. Nothing else is new here.

    Nice place to start out, but definitely no place to grow

    Pros

    Great way to get your foot in the door of pharma

    Cons

    No opportunity to grow at all. Promised opportunities, strung along for years. I also felt like the environment felt clique-ish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management in the Chicago office: invest in your employees!!
