    I have been working at PRA Health Sciences

    Pros

    Skilled and competent people (including lower and mid level leadership)
    Catered Friday breakfasts
    Great benefits

    Cons

    On arriving I was told the hours were so bad I should learn my skills and then get out of the company. That's about how its been. The vacation hours are good, but I've put more hours into weekends/holidays than I've earned in vacation time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees the weekends (as in all weekends off) and they will be motivated and contribute! Let lower and mid level managers make the decisions that affect the outcomes of their departments.

    I worked at PRA Health Sciences

    Pros

    great work, interesting, good location..ok benefits..some good upper management

    Cons

    too much politics, you can be doing a great job but if someone doesnt like you watch out!! Promises of raises never came through. watch your back & document everything you do. Management only supports those they want to support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You might retain more employees if you treated them fairly & paid them appropriately.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
