    I worked at PRACS Institute full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great salary for our area. Co-workers, other than management, are amazing. The CEO empowers his team and does whatever he can for his employees. Great sense of having helped millions by the work we do.

    Cons

    Terrible hours and frequently overworked. Middle management brought in from the outside is less than effective. Our culture didn't accept that at all. No leadership from them, mostly drill sergeant type ruling.

    It is very monatonous and hours depend on if there are studies; no studies - no shifts.

    Pros

    Extremely easy to find people to cover a shift
    Get paid to train and you have six months to complete

    Cons

    Most days requested off actually end up being scheduled.
    Hours vary from zero to twenty depending on if studies follow through and are actually held

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should be able to do more than just an email to let people know a shift is canceled or any other change of events, not everyone watches their email like a hawk

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at PRACS Institute

    Pros

    Amazing company that makes you feel worthwile and you can create good connections. There are alot of promotions from within. You get to see generic and namebrand medication get tested on participants and watch the study from start to finish. You can form friendships with fellow workers or with the participating volunteers. The management does a great job rewarding those who do well, and you'll always feel as though your work is appreciated. When rules or standards change, there are always meetings and you're kept well informed. You always feel like you can share your opinion and they will appreciate it.

    Cons

    There is a high turnover rate because of the majority of college students that are in nursing programs that leave when their schooling is up and they move on. Because of this, there is a lot of training of new people that doesn't end up mattering too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing
