PRA is becoming another PPD

Clinical Team Manager (Current Employee)

ProsDespite the poor economy, PRA is hiring several new employees. Due to the industry-wide shortage of CRAs, PRA actively recruits CRAs and has a couple of programs where In-house CRAs can bridge into a CRA position. Many employees, however, leave the company shortly after becoming CRAs.

ConsThe company is extremely top-heavy, continually hiring senior-level employees (vice presidents and senior directors) while laying off billable (to clients) employees. In addition, despite that the PRA had one of it's best years, the company didn't give bonuses; however, the CEO's direct reports all received promotions (to Exec VP.) The culture at PRA is to continually step on those below you and to screw the people equal to and above you to get ahead. Like most CROs, it's also extremely female-heavy.

Advice to Senior ManagementGo back to PPD. Several years ago, PRA was known as a good company because they treated the employees very well. In recent years, several people from PPD came to PRA in senior managment positions, including the CEO. Now, PRA cares very little about their employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Horrible! Unprofessional! Disappointing!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    I worked at PRA


    Pros: Flextime, benefits, ability to work from home, Bridge program, PTO days, expense reimbursement,… Cons: Too many cliques, many leads and managers have no prior… Advice to Senior Management: Listen to employees, be a part of the solution not the problem. Stop leaving the hen house unattended. Train staff… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
