    I worked at ICON

    Pros

    Like all CROs, working as a CRA here is a good way to get experience across a range of trials.

    Cons

    Never had a line manager the whole time i worked there. So there was no career development or assessment, making it impossible to ever be promoted or get feedback on my performance.
    Also, all the CRAs were stretched too thinly over the trials, making it impossible to monitor effectively. Even after ICON got a warning letter from the FDA over its monitoring it didn't really address the problem effectively. Management listened but couldnt' do anything. It came down to money at the end of the day. In summary, ICON is a place to work at for a while to cut your teeth as a CRA and then get out. There are better employers out there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people proper line managers who are available in the office/country where their charges are. Look at resourcing and stop giving CRAs greater than 100% allocation to studies.
