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

    Pros

    Working commute flexibility
    Competitive salary
    Closed between Xmas and New Years

    Cons

    Any department that is not related to the clinical operations is horrible to work for. Clinical operations have their processes perfect. While the rest of the company like it is exactly the opposite always trying to catch up, few people with initiatives never get promoted. Promotions are a joke only if is convenient to some upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are losing a lot of good talent for no focusing on quality but only speed of delivery, while the people in clinical brings the money the rest of the departments make sure clinicsl operations has all the tools running smoothly

    Can be a good place to grow but company cohesion needs work

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at INC Research

    Pros

    Company is growing so there are opportunities to advance. Benefits consistent with industry. If placed in the right position and able to learn on the job it can be a good place to learn skills needed in industry.

    Cons

    Not enough training for new hires and unprepared people are put on studies. This causes inefficiencies and extra work when working with people who do not understand responsibilities of their role. Departments can be too separate when working on the same study, contributing to confusion about people's roles. Therapeutically focused business units can be uncooperative with those outside their group. There is needless competition between groups when cooperation would produce better results and culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs a cohesive team vision. There is too much competition between business units when cooperation would be more efficient and less stressful and difficult for all involved. Budget for training.

    Unreal Expectations for CTLs

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    Pros

    Typical CRO environment but training is lacking. Directors had unreal expectations.

    Cons

    Was given a backlog of reports to review before I was even finished with orientation. Hadn't even had the opportunity to learn the study before I was given a deadline for reviewing reports. I had a project assistant go on medical leave and I was expected to take on their job and continue mine.

    Pros

    It was a great place to learn the ropes of the CRO industry. I felt like the company was a little bit behind in technology, but overall it was a welcoming environment that taught you the basics of the industry and clinical trials.

    Cons

    No clear career pathways were provided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I felt that the start-up group was always treated as the "black sheep" of the company. Even now I think they are still separated from the rest of the company in a different building. Show unity within your company and keep everyone informed equally.
