    Pros

    Supportive management and a positive work environment
    Salaries are at fair market value or better and INC will do market adjustments if needed
    INC is a growing financially healthy company
    HQ move to Morrisville will help recruitment and visibility. I know many people who won't even apply at INC right now due to the current out of way locations in north Raleigh
    Up to date EDC and CTMS technology
    Industry competitive benefits (except tuition reimbursement)

    Cons

    Management can be a little too nice, leading to a lack of accountability and too much dead weight
    Career growth not emphasized, especially if you want to move between functional areas
    Now INC is a public company, there is more emphasis on the immediate bottom line leading to some poor decisions (i.e. layoffs of CDAs)
    No tuition benefits

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to create a true "Culture of Opportunity"

    Pros

    CEO very savvy and current about Clinical Research.
    Trusted Process model has been in place for years and vast majority of sponsors appreciate its utility and collaborative approach.
    Development of plans early is advantageous and smart.

    Cons

    Cross-functional communication is not always encouraged.
    Study start-up often lacks requisite training to understand essential document requirements.
    Some upper management level employees, like at any CRO, have poor grammar, lack presentation skills and can't spell properly. This is very unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Train SSU early.

    INC Research have the availability to promote diversity throughout the company especially in the IT dept.but is extremely slow on that front. Extremely, hard to get promoted if you are not a manager or in a higher position within the company.

    Pros

    40 hour work week and advancement opportunities were high, but that has now slowed. Pay is direct deposited and benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Low industry pay and company is moving to the RTP area from North Raleigh. Less opportunity to work from home compared to competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within instead of continuing to look outside of the company and poaching competition.
