    Pros

    dynamic, innovative company. The management is really available to listen the employes and support team on projects and clients challenges management. There is very good communication that make me feel really part of the company. The company is really focused in identify talent people and provide all the support to develop talents. Your carrer can continue to progress and your ideas are really listened.

    Cons

    The line management based in other Countries can lead to some challenges with junior people. There is still work to do to align BUs, in particular we should work on alignment for staff management at Country level to ensure that employees don't feel like that being in one BU is better then in another

    Advice to Management

    We invested a lot in the campain "I can do, I own it", I think we should invest also on employees fidelization to the company. They need to feel proud to work for INC and we need to transfer to all employees the management passion for our work

    Pros

    The staff at INC were what made things possible.

    Cons

    Salary, senior management team, lack of human touch

    Advice to Management

    Since the office move things are slowly being fixed. Ineffective senior managers are being weeded out or moved sideways. I hope they continue to improve on this and recognise the staff who deliver against the odds.

    I worked at INC Research full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salaries are slightly higher than industry average. There are a few genuine people still working for the company

    Cons

    Company still riven by the effects of Kendle Merger. Many of the top talent left after the Kendle/INC merger. Year on year redundancies(6% 2013) indicative of bad planning of staff recruitment and service delivery. Succession of high profile clients removing business from INC due to service delivery issues. A large proportion of INC's business is dedicated solely to largest customers with small to mid-size customers suffering. Staff are expected to work long hours. No social life in INC UK.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on making INC a meritocracy. Too many decisions are based on political decisions. Colleagues who work best are not rewarded. Volume of work per employee can be dangerously high for some, and low for others. Focus on evaluating the mangers properly to ensure that they are doing their job effectively.

    The company offers Good benefits.

    Cons

    Work life balance is preached but not followed.

    Advice to Management

    Don't fear the sponsor so much.
