    Pros

    Wide variety of projects and cases; ability to work on multiple cases at a time to expand learning opportunities over a short period of time; really smart managers and colleagues; modern office space; great benefits

    CRA is a great place to work. As an entry level employee you will have the opportunity to work on a wide variety of projects with different senior staff.

    Cons

    Your experience will be very practice specific. Sometimes the workflow can be inconsistent depending on project staffing.
