    Excellent trainings to familiarize staff with GCP and clinical trial regulations; Managers consciously aware of employees who want to move into another role; use of SMART objectives for goals/evaluations; ability to move around in different clinical trial specialties

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at ICON full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They had great benefits in the beginning of the company start up.

    Cons

    They don't want you to be there longer then 10 years or so. If you are they get rid of you. So there is no opportunity for longevity with them.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more promotion opportunities, more abilities to move around the company. You should have long range goals of how to retire an employee being a young company there are no plans for that yet.
