    Pros

    Gave me an opportunity to start my career in clinical research.

    Cons

    Low salary, too much workload, unpaid overtime and low chances of career progration.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible, listen to their employees and offer solutions when they have too much to handle and offer more opportunities for promotion.

    I worked at INC Research full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Good Salary
    -Fast recruitment process
    -False image of being top 5 big CROs in world.

    Cons

    -POOR training

    -POOR knowledge and understanding of Leads/PMs. Who are based in different country than you and have major lack of understanding.

    -Major lack of communication in team. People who have information hide it and don't bother helping.

    -If you are CRA,then they will make you work like dog. They have so called big teams of feasibility specialist, contract specialist, site start up experts, project specialist who just dump their work on you and leave a cunning smiley :-) at the end of their emails.

    -Apparently everyone feels that they are overworked and have no hours to spend on any project. (Then what are you doing exactly if you are telling everyone the same story.)

    -Not good for people who work hard, know their job and take ownership of their work because overall culture is sly and lazy.
    - They say that their tagline is "I own it" but trust me the reality is exactly opposite. Everyone is looking for some excuse to avoid work.

    Advice to Management

    The speeches from the CEO Jamie Mcdonald are very inspiring but the staff is so uninterested,lazy and sly. Is this result of mergers that they have no sense of belonging. Is it growing too fast and turning into a giant mess where no one knows what they are suppose to be doing.

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