I have been working at ICON full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great benefits -- the health insurance offered is very good and low cost to employees. The people who work for ICON are smart and very hard working. You'll make some great connections for future job opportunities (because the turnover at ICON is very high).

Cons

Employees are over-allocated, underpaid, and under appreciated. If you enjoy working your ass off, working long hours, and struggling to meet timelines because of a lack of resources, only to have it go unnoticed, then ICON is the place for you. There is no career development here, unless you know how to work the system or are lucky and assigned to studies where you are given opportunities. It's hard working in the same position for years with no guarantee that you'll ever get anywhere.

Advice to Management

Pay your employees what they're worth! Work on your resourcing! Enhance career development and give people a reason to stay.

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

    Pros

    Basic health insurance is very good and monthly employee premium is very reasonable. Good number of vacation days to start. Great people

    Cons

    Inexperienced managers though they are trying to get better. Not much of a career path or professional development opportunities.
