    I have been working at INC Research full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have had incredible managers who have mentored and supported me.

    Cons

    The company is very large, which makes it difficult to personally know others in your department. But, the company is divided by therapeutic area, which makes it seem that we are working for a smaller company.

    Pros

    Great talent, high expectations but if you work hard you'll be rewarded.

    Cons

    A project Team screwed up on a study I sold and we lost the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Don't blame when there is a problem, if you aren't part of the solution, you're part of the problem!

    Pros

    Some people are amazing to work with.

    Cons

    If you’re not a “pet” of one of the executives you can expect a dead end job. The blame game is quite popular here where if something goes wrong the next man in line is the scapegoat. Upper management and executives take responsibility for nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Actually follow your own company motto, and “own it.” Be advocates for the employees that are making the company so much money. We’re not thow away people you can just cycle through.

    Pros

    There are no pros at this time. The company is a mess currently with the merger with inVentiv. Health. It is the Clinical versus the commercial side currently.

    Cons

    Merger is terrible and senior management is out for themselves. Company is a mess currently with lots of unhappy employees. Run from this company!

    Advice to Management

    Better management of human capital with merger. Show appreciation for the talent you have.

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

    Pros

    Week between Christmas and New Years is off so that is a plus. People you work with are nice but just as unhappy.

    Cons

    Merger is a mess as seen by tanking stock price, benefits cost went up significantly and no merit to help. What bonus? You only get a bonus if your one of the “manager”. So much turnover it’s hard to keep up. You will always get a new boss when the other leaves. No employee events, no tuition reimbursement, no career path. HR is unorganized and always changing so useless basically. This place spends it money on a new building, it’s executives and the merger your just another person to burn out while you are here and that is if you survive the constant layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking about what a great place it is and get real. walk around you could hear a pin drop on every floor of that corporate office. Everyone is head down miserable tryin not to get fired. No one cares about a new building when we cannot pay our rent and car note.

    Pros

    Week of Christmas off. Get to work from home 1 day a week after 90 days of employment.

    Cons

    Doesn't pay as well compared to other CROs in the industry. Health insurance premiums just increased significantly (however, INC is providing stipends to the employees to offset this increase).

    I worked at INC Research full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They pay you at regular intervals.

    Cons

    I resigned with two weeks notice. Human Resources sent me a threatening email advising that expenses left on my corporate card could impact my credit in a negative way. I informed INC research Human Resources that I did not use personal credit or mortgage loans for any reason and so this could not hurt me. At the time we were talking about approximately $50. Two months later I received a statement from US Bank that I had a balance of $3,300 for expenses for which I had long since turned in expense reports for. I believe this was intentional.

    Advice to Management

    It should be obvious.
