    I have been working at INC Research full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you're lucky enough you'll get to work with some talented, dedicated first class professionals. If not then put up with a bunch of morons who try to hide their incompetence behind their aggressive tone

    Cons

    People are overloaded with work, resourcing is a joke, overtime is not paid, infact you get nothing in return
    Performance appraisal is a joke, you have goals like "submit timesheet on time" and "complete your training assignments"

    Advice to Management

    Recognize talent and don't put people in "senior" positions just because they have been working for the company for ages but done nothing .
    And by the way recognition doesnt equal a thankyou e-mail or an INC pen!!!!!!! Get real....

    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!!

    "Kendle thought it was a merger it was a merciless takeover"

    Pros

    Kept Kendle employees in a job in the very short term. Good Business development

    Cons

    Where to start, brutal removal of very experienced kendle management right across the board to be replaced by management with half the experience. INC very distrustful of Kendle staff bordering on arrogance. Dishonest management ticking boxes and insincere. Data management very insular and pigeon- holed......very early nineties view on centralised resources in the back of beyond. Avoid..small man syndrome

    Advice to Management

    You do not superimpose the same management structure on to operations that has doubled. Also Battle East Sussex is not just outside London it is hours away. I fear your Kendle takeover has left ex kendle folks very unhappy and this will ensure that long term difficulty.

    I have been working at INC Research part-time

    Pros

    As with most CROs, your experience will depend a lot on the individual who is your Line Manager. I have a great one at present. However, many restructuring a over the years mean that I have had many changes of Line Manager.

    Cons

    The management in my department can be a bit top-down in style, which can lead to you feeling unsupported from time to time.

    Advice to Management

    Management to refer to 'us' and 'we', not 'you'.
