No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Good place to start after college, great training, good benefits

Cons

Very cliquey, slow to promote unless you are in the 'in' crowd, low pay

Advice to Management

treat your employees equally, stop the favoritism. You have high CRA turn over due to extreme travel expectations and low compensation; Advice to employees- learn what you can and get out.

    Pros

    The industry is interesting.
    A lot of the regular workers were good poeple, nice to work with.
    My boss, middle management, was great. He left too.

    Cons

    THe executives are in it for themselves, they make decisions based on what will make him/her more money personally.
    They did not listed to the ideas of their staff.
    The senior management did not exemplify leadership in any way. They made many poor decisions regarding their people, in my opinion.
    Some of the senior management at other locations were very immature, and not educated about basic management such as OT laws.
    Most people have unrealistic workloads. This was a common problem I heard and witnessed often.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any because I believe that it would not do any good. It would fall on deaf ears because they would not agree and did not see any areas for improvement. It's sad.
