      Working to keep you there

      May 24, 2016 - Anonymous Employee

      Pros

      I was at ICON for over 9 years. It's a solid CRO and they work hard to ensure benefits are attractive to the employees and fair across the company. Salary is good and work life balance is fair. Solid CRO and among the top for caring and keeping good talent.

      Cons

      Career progression can be tough, they have realigned jobs and titles such that it took away some of the esteem of being a manager or director at higher levels. Upper management tends to only listen to management versus worker bees, tough when they are outta touch of what the workload is and how they bid projects; puts the teams at a disadvantage to be profitable, especially in preferred partnerships.

      Uninspiring leadership

      Nov 12, 2019 - Senior Manager in Dublin, Dublin

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Lots of opportunity to take on more responsibility - The people - great bunch of people to work with - Flexibility around working from home - Pay and benefits are quite good - not amazing but good

      Cons

      - Lack of career progression, they will give you more and responsibility but very difficult to get promoted and get recognised for what you do - People leaving are not being replaced so more and more responsibility being put on those that are left meaning that you end up working long hours - Not transparent as to how to get promoted - see some people given promotions while other maybe more deserving are not able to get promoted. - Senior leadership is very male dominated and felt like a bit of a boys club at times - Senior leadership don't live by their values - integrity and collaboration - Very autocratic - every decision to hire has to be approved by the CEO and this takes months
