I worked at PRA Health Sciences full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Keurig Coffee System - yummy coffee at your fingertips! Great Christmas Party Monthly activities for employees

Cons

Managers are power hungry Lack of flexibility Not family friendly work environment Inept bonus plans Good Ol' boy system at work Merit increases unfairly distributed

Advice to Management

follow the path of the turnover and it will lead to managment issues - severe, unaddressed, management issues. in many cases, managers have full power over who gets promoted, who gets salary increases, and how merit is distributed. In my department, there were gross salary inequities and those issues were raised, but ignored. there were numerous complaints about our manager's lack of flexibility and harsh and unpredictable attitude and communication style...again, that was ignored. Employees are frustrated and fed up to the point that they are leaving in extremely high numbers.

    Pros

    PRA is great about benefits and PTO.

    Cons

    Training is a little lacking. New employees tend to feel a little lost.

    Advice to Management

    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!

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

    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 Management

    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!
