    I have been working at INC Research as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Varied work as a medical writer. You won't get bored. I have written and am working on protocols related to hemophilia, endocrinology, and aesthetics within my first three months. My manager is incredibly positive and helpful, as have the been others I've worked with.

    Cons

    Balancing priorities of multiple clients. It's important to coordinate with Project Management as much as possible, as there can be multiple Project Managers assigned to projects, working from different time zones and continents, and all balancing their own shifting priorities. This isn't a con, so much as my learned experience to be ready to assume a PM role to expedite projects while informing the designed PMs.

    I have been working at INC Research (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Projects cover a wide range of interesting topics. Training is constant, so I feel I am keeping up with the business world in general and this industry in particular, plus getting specialized education about individual clients' needs. I enjoy having colleagues globally. The benefits, such as health insurance and 401(k) match, are decent. Besides regular PTO the company gives you a week off with pay in December. All levels of management seek feedback on various subjects at various times. Business casual attire is acceptable for most people. Telecommuting is OK for most people. Everyone is courteous and has a professional demeanor. The new hire orientation program at headquarters was terrific; it definitely got me started with optimism. I do not feel like "just a number."

    Cons

    I like the environment but others don't because you must keep up the intense pace and have great attention to detail. I've seen smart people fail because they could not sit still and concentrate long enough. You must be able to handle deadlines. Sometimes you work harder than at others to accomplish important goals. You must work independently a lot (although there is support) and be flexible. You frequently multi-task. As a new employee I was disappointed with my first raise considering how hard I'd worked and how much positive feedback I'd gotten. (However, as noted above, other compensation like health insurance and 401(k) are appreciated. Next year work on salary?)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The corporate culture is headed in the right direction. I hope as you become more successful so do I.
