    I worked at INC Research

    Pros

    CRO brand name, Flexibility in hours and being able to work from home (conditions apply)made it easy schedule around bad commutes and personal business..The quality of work is not noted. It's all about quantity and metrics.

    Cons

    management not transparent and work for employee betterment. Employees should be motivated. be more flexible, listen to their employees and offer solutions when they have too much to handle and offer more opportunities for promotion. no benefit apart from salary.. lot of internal politics, work not appreciated..high iteration rate, most of employee dont stay there for more than one year..and they say best CRO

    Pros

    Week of Christmas off. Get to work from home 1 day a week after 90 days of employment.

    Cons

    Doesn't pay as well compared to other CROs in the industry. Health insurance premiums just increased significantly (however, INC is providing stipends to the employees to offset this increase).

    I have been working at INC Research full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent PTO, 401k match is nice. Remote/Work from home option for some areas.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance doesn't exist, extremely high expectations as you gain more experience, high work loads, some areas have great schedules and autonomy while other departments have very demanding workloads, new benefits increase for 2018 makes the employee contribution 3 times the amount it used to be, very little opportunity for advancement once you reach a certain level. So much micromanagement and very top heavy organization.

    Pros

    Peers are nice Pay is decent Medical benefits aren't too bad Work from home day once a week (but can't be Monday or Friday)

    Cons

    This place feels so corporate, and not in a good way. Extremely political, it's all about brown-nosing and sucking up. Many of the directors are unpleasant and narcissistic. Extremely process driven as the company is constantly audited. A lot of cuts, but a little at a time so it doesn't become public. Lack of job stability, growth, and poor morale.
