I worked at PRA Health Sciences full-time

Pros

The benefits are good and some of the people are amazing

Cons

The pay is approximately 20% less than industry standards. PRA no longer values those with experience, but prefers to hire those with no experience who will accept less pay than what the position warrents.

Advice to Management

Paying more for quailty employees wins out over paying less just so you'll have quantity.

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

    Pros

    fast growing, initally had a very global management team and an understanding of the market outside North America

    Cons

    Over last 12 months change in management and have now lost their global awareness for both customers and staff. Unfortunately their most experienced managemnt have left or are leaving.
    A company good at starting new initiatives but very poor in getting staff buy in and implementation, thus most systems and processes very poorly thought through and utilised.

    Advice to Management

    Be more global. Listen to a wider group of your senior management team not just those who say what you want to hear.........

    I worked at PRA Health Sciences full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Many talented and committed individuals.
    Technology and feasibility systems are great.

    Cons

    Executive management is focused on power rather than on employees and clients. There was back-stabbing, sabotaging, and blatantly inappropriate behavior at times. Scientific and executive attention toward winning new projects are lacking once projects are underway.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on talented staff and commitment to clients.
