    From day one, my experience with PRA has been that the culture here supports a very supportive atmosphere. Senior management keeps employees informed about the company's position. The training is stellar. PRA also keeps up with technology.

    I have been working at PRA Health Sciences full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work from home. Training opportunities. Supportive environment. Individual freedom to adjust schedule to allow for a work-life balance.

    Cons

    Can be difficult to make connections with Co-workers in a remote setting. Can be frugal about approving reimbursements & promotions may take a while but this is also a testament to savvy financial management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with staff, even the difficult conversations. Honesty is best. Talk about advancement with staff - what people need to do, the process of requesting promotions, wait time involved. These are important factors to keep up morale.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PRA Health Sciences.

    Interview Details

    Received a call from a recruiter asking was i interested in the position. She asked a couple of questions and then emailed me a summary of the company benefits and stated she was passing my resume on to the hiring manager. A week later I got a email scheduling a time for a face to face interview. I interviewed with the hiring manager then two ppl that actually does the job I would be doing .. Interview took about and hour .. I received a call from the recruiter a week later stating they wanted to offer me a position. They hire a company called smart start to do a background check and they do a VERY Through background calling every place u worked the last 7 years and they do this AFTER you're offered the position so it's a little nerve racking waiting for everything to be OKed .
