    I worked at INC Research full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Had good employee benefits package, fair employee compensation rates and reasonably good work environment.

    Cons

    Lack of adequate supervision of managerial positions holders and inadequate attention to issues/complaints from direct reports.

    Advice to Management

    Should have a better oversight/supervision of supervisors/managers and review/investigate issues/complaints raised by employees concerning their work with open mind.

    Unskilled managers; company is cheap with employee events; no sabbatical for non-CRAs; workload is not evenly distributed among employees (some are more overworked than others); management sets unreasonable expectations (not enough hours in a week to meet all of the demands they place on employees); salary is not competitive.

    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.
