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

    Pros

    I remain impressed at the effort taken to welcome and retain new starters. The Managers/Leaders I met have been helpful and approachable and, dare I suggest, empathic.

    Cons

    Some systems and processes would benefit from updating to match the success and ambitions of the company.

    Pros

    Supportive team, challenging, growth is possible if you do a good work, salary is comparable to other CROs

    Cons

    Growing really fast, means lack of resources and constant struggle, that leads to great people to leave the company as they are burned with work.

    Advice to Management

    Hire, hire, hire

    Pros

    INC Research has supported my career development.
    I work hard and subsequently have always been recognised for it; I have been promoted into a position of management and been given the autonomy to make the decisions that I feel are right for my team.
    I am not just another number; my opinion matters!

    Cons

    This is a company where you are recognised for your merit; people who just want to coast or do not perform are quickly found out.

    Advice to Management

    Trust in your employees; they will deliver!!

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

    Pros

    They have a fantastic onboarding and overall training program - even better than many of the larger CROs.

    Cons

    Your career at INC could hinge on whether the department head liked you or not. Lots of maneuvering and strategizing needed to be done to get ahead; it wasn't a given that your job performance alone would influence your career progression. They also forced PMs living within an hour of the office to come to the office at least 3 days/wk, even though they would put up to 3 people in a cramped office due to lack of space.

    I worked at INC Research full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.
