    I have been working at PRA Health Sciences full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The exponential growth of the company over the last several years has opened up the organization to a great deal of job opportunities and the potential for career advancement. The management team is generally very supportive and the company places a strong emphasis on using the latest technological systems in the field.

    Cons

    Growth has meant the sacrifice of a more "family feeling" company and decreased the personal connections between staff members. There is a strong sense disseminates from upper management that the bottom line now outweighs quality in staffing. Employees are also at the mercy of their functional manager in terms of moving ahead in the company, which can be highly detrimental in situations where there are frequent management changes or the individual is not strong in this role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote the retention of quality employees!!! The policies in place are leading to high turnover and the loss of some of the best resources in the company.
