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

    Pros

    Corporate facilities are very nice, company events scheduled (only for corporate employes) throughout the year, good benefits

    Cons

    Very poor management on all levels. On-site corporate employees are valued while those in the field are under-valued and over-worked. Merit increases have been stripped away and the environment reminds me of high school, rumor and innuendo are rampant and upper-management is just as much a part of it (including HR/Recruiting who should know better)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend less money on catering breakfast every Friday and expensive corporate lunches and more on rewarding individual performance.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at PRA Health Sciences

    Pros

    Intelligent, hard-working employees
    Salary
    Benefits
    Free coffee and breakfast (Fridays)
    Central location

    Cons

    No work/life balance what so ever (10+ hours a day is the norm, 14-15 hours a day on deadline days)
    Projects are taken on under unrealistic deadlines.
    Upper management with stopwatch hearts.
    Hard to increase merit internally (though if someone comes in from somewhere else with an identical skill set, they could easily make 15k over you.)
    High turnover
    Questionably skilled leadership
    Way too many chiefs
    Unhappiness across departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take notice (and action) of the mass exodus of your employees. Even though PRA is gaining clients, it will fail internally if something is not done.
