    I worked at INC Research full-time

    Pros

    Benefits package is very good. CRAs are eligible for a 2 week sabbatical every 2 years which must be taken all at once. It's 2 weeks additional PTO.

    Cons

    Like any other CRO they push hard. Like any other road warrior job in the industry, you are paid well for your soul.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the sabbatical program. Work life balance is kind of a joke for traveling monitors in general. Money helps, but there's a reason burnout is so high.

    Pros

    You get a week off between Christmas and New Year.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive especially if you've moved up within the company.
    Management does not trust their employees so work from home is limited to 1-2 days and cannot be on a Monday or Friday.
    Employees are not encouraged to question, they just want people to be quiet and do what they're told.
    Management is rude and unprofessional.
    There is absolutely no incentive to well as hard work and dedication will only be rewarded with more work.
    Focus seems to be on the dollar--not quality work or qualified professionals.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and take a good look. Keep your mouth closed and listen, actively listen to what is being said. Fat rises to the top.

    Pros

    Benefits, Week off for Christmas, teammates you work with on a daily basis are really great. Not a whole lot of “pros” as with previous management things were ALLOT better.

    Cons

    Terrible management and no matter how many concerns you have it falls on death ears. No room for growth unless you are a master manipulator just like the management team currently over the department.

    Advice to Management

    Get out with the old and in with the new! There’s nothing worse having hard dedicated workers that will leave because of less than average management. People leave managers not companies!
