Hi All,

I am currently a CRA I (almost 2 years) at PPD as I am pretty miserable and am thinking of making a move. Does anyone have advice, thoughts, or opinions on Icon? Will things get better as I gain experience at PPD?

   advancement is very difficult in this industry. The next move up is clinical lead which is a difficult job and hard to get into. There are more CRAs that want to advance then there are opportunities. The CROs are all consolidating now or going out of business/being acquired. You have to look into the future of this industry as well....and plan your future accordingly.

   All CROs are basically the same.... Mostly it is about what study and managers and sites you get paired up with and not about the company you work for. If PPD isnt promoting you and keeping your salary competitive, you might need to make a move to advance.
