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 Management

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 Management

    Management will decide. Nothing else is new here.

    I worked at ICON full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You could wear jeans everyday. Benefits were okay.

    Cons

    No promottions for experience, all about the money no concerned with employee growth. Favoritism across the Study Start-Up department. Some receiving 2 promotions within 1 year. Very, very cliqueish, if you are not part of the in-crowd or cool with someone from the in-crowd you can forget about ever being promoted. No work/life balance, you are assigned more studies than can be handle by one individual, At ICON you are just a head count, nothing more. Important company information was passed via word of mouth prior to getting official notice from management.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management needs to take a closer look at middle management.
