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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits
    Allowed to work from home when not traveling

    Cons

    No work/life balance
    Workload not sustainable; I worked 65-70 hours every week (includes every weekend) to get the job done and done properly. I finally quit because I could not continue at this pace

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep employee turnover low and therefore reduce your costs for hiring and training, make sure your employees aren’t consistently stretched beyond what is reasonable.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    I worked at INC Research (More than a year)

    Pros

    Starting salary was good. The company offers the standard benefits. There are no other pros that I can think of.

    Cons

    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.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are very good and salary competitive with other CRO's. They give incentive bonuses for doing extra days on site

    Cons

    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
