    I have been working at INC Research full-time

    Pros

    Pension contribution is reasonably generous. That's about it.

    Cons

    Where do I begin?
    Wages are way below industry average, and so are the benefits. They will offer you a lowish starting salary promising rapid promotion and increases which in fact will only be given to members of an elite clique (especially if they threaten to leave). Others will sweat blood and not get so much as a "thank you".
    Local management is practically non-existent;- now that the office has relocated from Battle to Lewes literally all managers are gone! As are 60% of the workforce. New ones are not recruited, no wonder, who would want to work for peanuts?
    No recognition for your hard work. People whose "faces fit" will get promoted only.
    Before you consider joining, take a look around on PharmiWeb and see how many openings INC have at any one time. (Currently >30) This is not a sign of an expanding company, this is a sign of a company which people flee from at the first chance (office relocation leading to voluntary redundancy...). No new recruits, so the remaining people are getting even more increase in their workload (some of us are 300% over resourced!)
    When you apply for a job elsewhere your prospective employer will assume that because your salary is so low that you cannot be very good at your job, so will either make you a poor offer, or even none at all.
    Steer clear of this company. If only there had been someone to warn me before I joined.

    Advice to Management

    Read your own material regarding commitment to recognition of hard work, to equal treatment, to caring about the employees and the rest.
    T. Fitzgerald said recently that INC wanted to be the industry leader in recognition. They have rather a long way to go.

    I worked at INC Research full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salaries are slightly higher than industry average. There are a few genuine people still working for the company

    Cons

    Company still riven by the effects of Kendle Merger. Many of the top talent left after the Kendle/INC merger. Year on year redundancies(6% 2013) indicative of bad planning of staff recruitment and service delivery. Succession of high profile clients removing business from INC due to service delivery issues. A large proportion of INC's business is dedicated solely to largest customers with small to mid-size customers suffering. Staff are expected to work long hours. No social life in INC UK.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on making INC a meritocracy. Too many decisions are based on political decisions. Colleagues who work best are not rewarded. Volume of work per employee can be dangerously high for some, and low for others. Focus on evaluating the mangers properly to ensure that they are doing their job effectively.
