    I have been working at PRA Health Sciences

    Pros

    I enjoy every aspect of working here. I really cant think of anything negative. Breakfast every Friday, dry cleaing delivered to and picked up from the office, chair massages, and even a car detailer.

    Cons

    There really are no cons. The only thing I could even think would be more pay, but who doesn't want that?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership at PRA is really well rounded. They are very compassionate people who seem to care for their employees.

    I worked at PRA Health Sciences

    Pros

    Always busy and productive. Pleasant work setting. Good diversity of assignments, clients, and therapeutic areas. Lots of wonderful non-management employees.

    Cons

    Stingy and greedy management. I quit after working there 11-1/2 years. The past two years were unbearable. Excessive workload and hours; no recognition from management of any kind - in spite of record revenues and profits from studies I led, outstanding personal performance, and high client satisfaction with my work. Employee turnover is rising, especially amongst their most experienced and competent staff; and clients are following them. I am now an independent contractor earning 40% more doing the same work for some of the same clients. I look forward to continuing to take business from PRA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It'd be a waste of time to advise PRA senior (mis-) management
