Pros

PRA is great about benefits and PTO.

Assign a GOOD mentor to every new employee and make sure the mentor is being attentive.

    Ghost town: Mass exodus of key stake-holders, hiring freeze, unhappy employees, empty offices/cubes, employees on edge!

    Pros

    Good benefits, breakfast every Friday, and nice office space.

    Cons

    ZERO accountability for management and lack of flexibility! If your manager is kissing the right (rear end) or making his/her boss look good, it doesn't matter how he/she treats you. It's a shame to feel forced to leave an otherwise decent job because of managers who are allowed to bully employees! This company purports to being big on Work/Life balance but employees no longer enjoy the flexibility that we once had! You are coerced into using PTO for practically every 30 minutes that you're not at your desk! This company also used to allow work from home privileges; however, that has dissolved. Pucker Up: This is a company where only kissing the right (rear ends) pays off and bullying/poor managers aren't held accountable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate the people you allow to manage others!!! Offer employee surveys - at least "pretend" that you're interested in hearing employee's concerns. You're losing talented people in droves!

    I worked at PRA Health Sciences full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Working environment allowed me to acquire the skills and motivation to get much better employment elsewhere.

    Cons

    Senior management has been trying to sell the company for quite some time. To make their bottom line look sweeter to potential buyers, they have been denying decent compensation, raises, and bonuses to everybody but themselves. Now even their most loyal employees are leaving in droves.

    Earlier this year their website had several hundred job openings. Most of them have since been removed. They can no longer justify them due to negative growth and lack of interest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Several of your former employees are now working for competing CROs. Many, like me, are now key decision makers at pharmaceutical companies, i.e. your customer base. This is why you are experiencing negative growth and cannot find a buyer for your company. It's all about how you treat your employees.
