FilterUK - All CitiesSenior Clinical Research Associate
I worked at INC Research as a contractor (More than a year)
Great company to work for.
Need more organized systems implemented
I have been working at INC Research full-time (More than a year)
Really great training and career development opportunities.
Open door policy on any given issue.
Transparency with quarterly goals, revenue, and company future/ outlook.
Internal Quality Issue tracking database for all study-related issues and audits.
Indication/ Therapeutic area-focused business units for clinical staff all the way up to ClinOps directors. Everyone is approachable.
Diligent focus on task assignment and accountability; encourages "can do it" mentality and provides tools necessary.
No annual bonus for Clinical staff not completing monitoring visits. There are various incentives for conducting observation visits and the days spent at an IM or face to face visit with a Sponsor, but it really doesn't compare to an annual bonus. Agree CRAs should take priority in compensation/ bonus structure, but to only hand out merit increases each year to everyone else is a bit of a bummer.

Starting salary was good. The company offers the standard benefits. There are no other pros that I can think of.
The company does not offer a pleasant work environment and much of the time the demands are unreal. There is no fairness in management and you can only move up if you are on the favor side of a particular manager. In general a lot of favoritism.
Advice to Management
There are two major things that I expect from managers: fairness and clear communication skills. I was not able to find these while working at the company.
Paid holiday shut down between Christmas and New Year
None so far to date.

Benefits are very good and salary competitive with other CRO's. They give incentive bonuses for doing extra days on site
Disorganization especially within resourcing. Managers are spread too thin being expected to multitask between being leads on projects, CRA managers and trip report reviewer
Advice to Management
Reorganize your resourcing model
