I have been working at ICON full-time (More than a year)
The company is based out of Ireland, so they give you 3 weeks paid PTO. This is so much different than many US based corporate jobs. Management in the office seems to genuinely care about your success. My manager is always looking for ways to help me progress and actively sends me new opportunities to help me with future promotions. I'm a year in now and I can honestly say, I'd be very happy to stay here for many years to come.
The staffing on the individual studies is low at times, but that may have only been the phase of the study we were in. Every study will have different team members from all over the world, so it's a mixed bag of what you may end up with. For example, my study team is wonderful.. except one management position that sometimes ignores emails for over a week. So honestly it's luck of the draw there. Otherwise, I'm happy to be here!
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ICON.
If you treat your employees the same way you treat your employment candidates then I'm fortunate to not work for you! Applied for a position then promptly received an email from a company recruiter to set up a time for a discussion by phone. I sent a variety of times then heard nothing back in return. I followed up several additional times and the recruiter couldn't muster up the common courtesy to reply to any of my additional emails. I don't see by your employee reviews that you are the greatest company in the world to work for so you might want to reconsider how you treat candidates and talent!
