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

    Pros

    The company is good about adding additional holidays each year.

    Cons

    This role is somewhat of a dumping ground. A lot of responsibility is put on the CTM without a lot of support.

    I have been working at PRA Health Sciences full-time

    Pros

    It's a job and pays the bills. I wish I had known what the company was like prior to accepting the offer.

    Cons

    Don't plan on having a personal life. If you want to further your education, don't expect any support from Management. Yes, they do offer tuition reimbursement (a set amount) and you have to stay with the company for two years after you complete your education or pay back the money.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to make it known to their employees that they actually care about them and balancing work and family.
