    Negative Outlook

    I worked at ICON full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My immediate manager was a former colleague who was supportive. I would not recommend this company to anyone.

    Cons

    Orientation is poor and not face to face. Work life balance in non existent. It is literally impossible to get all work done effectively. Turnover rate is high. IT is in another country and very very poor. Metrics are priority over quality. Bullying is allowed with no consequences. Home grown systems are poor with no expert super users. HR is unavailable and does not have human contact with employees such as interview process and does not provide and exit interview.

    I worked at ICON full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There compensation is very competitive. If they want you they will make an extra effort to get you. There is a lot of room for growth and you have opportunities to train in areas you are interested in. If you get a great team like I did, you will find that they support each other rather than undermine each other.

    Cons

    Management sometimes sets unrealistic expectation about how a study can be run. No one speaks up u til it’s obvious that what they are doing isn’t working.

    I have been working at ICON full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people here really do make the company great! Managers are professional and provide immediate support, college will help you and support you. The workload however is intense and you can be on 6+ protocols at one go. This can make it hard to focus on quality and meet all the metrics required (well at least not without working overtime and weekends which i've been doing for the past 2 years). It does feel unbearable at time but the friendly people are keeping me sane (we're all in the same boat). You will be worked to the bone but it puts you in a position to survive everywhere you go.

    Cons

    no work life balance. Horrible Days on Site metrics mean people are often out for 10+ days.

    Great Team and wonderful support. Everyone pulls their weight.

    Cons

    Some systems or antiquated or inefficient. Sometimes people don't seem to know what the project requires.
