I worked at PRA Health Sciences full-time for less than a year

Pros

good vacation package
good insurance
good salaries

Cons

Employees are poorly treated, with no family/work balance. Very arrogant management that think they know everything and consulting companies are the holly grail. Many good people have left the company and still no one cares, employees (especially good ones) are thought of as replaceable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a good look at how you are leading this company, your people are your MOST valuable asset.
