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

    Pros

    Really great training and career development opportunities.
    Open door policy on any given issue.
    Transparency with quarterly goals, revenue, and company future/ outlook.
    Internal Quality Issue tracking database for all study-related issues and audits.
    Indication/ Therapeutic area-focused business units for clinical staff all the way up to ClinOps directors. Everyone is approachable.
    Diligent focus on task assignment and accountability; encourages "can do it" mentality and provides tools necessary.

    Cons

    No annual bonus for Clinical staff not completing monitoring visits. There are various incentives for conducting observation visits and the days spent at an IM or face to face visit with a Sponsor, but it really doesn't compare to an annual bonus. Agree CRAs should take priority in compensation/ bonus structure, but to only hand out merit increases each year to everyone else is a bit of a bummer.

    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.

    Pros

    Positive company culture and really enjoy all of the teams I work with. It's growing very quickly, which is exciting to be part of. I am recognized during successes and feel supported during struggles. It's a professional, corporate office environment with a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    It's extremely busy, but mostly due to how fast the organization is growing. It's a bit crowded here at headquarters, so I wish more teams were allowed to work remote.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the company culture strong and positive.
