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

Pros

-Coworkers are great and make the workplace a better place to be
-A good amount of paid time off is offered to employees and employees are encouraged to use it
-There is quite a bit of turnover, but this is not surprising for the CRO industry. This creates a lot of opportunities for advancement earlier on
-A week off over Christmas
-Company is growing and has a bright future
-Lots of work for employees means job security
-good benefits
-management tends to be open to process improvement suggestions

Cons

-Compensation is on the low side
-Raises/bonuses are few and far between
-The amount of work can be overwhelming at times
-As a CRO, completely dependent on sponsor contracts awarded, so layoffs do occur from time to time.
-Company is going through integration and growing pains. Change is always taking place
-Many processes in place hinder company's efficiency, but are being improved

Advice to Management

Reward employees for hard work with bonuses and invest in processes that improve efficiency/decrease employee burnout

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Had great vacation and insurance packages.

    Cons

    The work environment is stressful. There is very very little or no communication from upper management. The way that the company makes their decisions is leading to overworked and under-paid/under-appreciated employees. Many employees are leaving for much better opportunities at other companies.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    -Competitive salary
    -Flexible work time (if you have the right manager)
    -Growing company/business
    -Professional environment
    -Process driven and structured environment

    Cons

    -Benefits package needs to be upgraded. Company should have better negotiating pull with insurance companies with recent acquisition and increased company headcount
    -Managers are not interested in developing employees, only in focusing efforts on the project(s) at hand
    -Too many layers of directors, exec directors, VPs, that it's not always clear who makes the decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Add professional development components to retain and bring in quality employees that will want to stay with the company and not leave after 1 year on the job.
