    I worked at INC Research full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A good place to start out, before moving to more auspicious lands. I would recommend staying about a year, in order to to gain some CV clout.

    Cons

    As all CROs, if you are good at your job, they will use you until they run you into the ground. If you say no you are uncooperative, if you say yes they will keep giving you more and more work. Once they have given you too much, if you slip up even only once, that will become an excuse for not letting you progress. Very murky promotion system, managers' pets are much more likely to get promoted. Absolutely no chance to develop and grow.
