    I worked at INC Research full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Some good folks. Merger with Inventiv will make them a force to be reckoned with in the market place.

    Cons

    Exceedingly poor systems. No integration between systems. Rework entering the same information in to multiple places every month. Finance system makes in incredibly difficult to track payments and invoices.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and start paying some attention to your employees rather than your shareholders. There needs to be more senior management support at the project level.

    I worked at INC Research full-time

    Pros

    Great place to work. Loved the small office feel and lots of room for growth. Would recommend to anyone looking for a new opportunity.

    Cons

    Large company feel. Can get lost as it's a small office in a much larger organization that is centrally focused on its USA offices.

    Advice to Management

    Salaries not very competitive so hard to keep employees in the long run. Need to find a way to keep clinical staff engaged.
