Internal Politics, fear of LAYOFFS, and little room for promotions and raises
Project Support Analyst (Current Employee), Houston, TXJuly 11, 2014
Pros: benefits: vacation time, sick time, maternity leave, health care
Cons: internal politics, little to no room for promotions and raises
When I first started at ICON, I was thrilled to be in, what seemed like, a comfortable work environment with laid back management and good benefits. However, I soon found that there is so much internal politics. There is a huge culture of internal referrals, which mans that management and employees, and upper management are friends amongst themselves – more... and they chose to move people up based on friendships and not on talent. The company has faced a huge round of lay offs in the past year and now when meetings are called, people are afraid of losing their jobs.

Background: The company called together a global meeting and alerted us that by the end of the day we may no longer have a job. We held another afternoon meeting at which point those that were going to be laid off had left, and talked about moving forward. Whose to say the company won't do that again?

Another huge downside is that because of lay offs and the company not being in stellar standing, there have been limited promotions and pathetic incremental increases (we're talking 0% to 3% here). Long term, this is not a company worth working for because moving up is difficult through all the politics, and even incremental increases and bonsuses are just pathetic.

On another note, the benefits are good. Health coverage is solid, and vacation time is more than most US companies, with decent maternity leave and sick time.

Overall, I do not recommend this company. – less

Company going through growing pains
Revenue Supervisor (Current Employee), North Wales, PAJune 19, 2013
Pros: good benefits and hours
Cons: some management structure and approaches clash in different offices
This is a typical work in a large corporation, but due to the fact that many functions are mirrored in US and Ireland there are conflicts over splits of work and credit.
