    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.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, Opportunity to work from home,

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Value and Honor the Individual Contributors in the company. Express and Execute Provide Growth and Opportunities for employees that are not in the management role. Educate Management that Individual Contributors are just as valuable to the company, and execute rewards to those employees.

    I have been working at INC Research full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility, new managers open to change, standup desks, new technology, HR working on improving culture, training managers, and being an employer of choice. The company grew fast and infrastructure did not but they are trying to fix it which is truly a positive and important to INC. Turnover is no different from any other CRO and INC is working to improve it by adding its own CRA program for example.

    Cons

    Maybe better bonus structure and tuition reimbursement.

    Advice to Management

    None. I think INC is moving in the right direction. Change is never overnight but working towards improvement shows management cares.
