I worked at PRA Health Sciences full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

can meet some nice people below the level of management

Cons

Managers are selected depending on social connections not competence. These managers then go on to micromanage, selecting arbitary rules that are applied to those out of favour (have openly stated their issues) whilst blatantly breaking the rules themselves. HR protects bullying managers, going to extraordinary lengths which in the end make them look ridiculous and all credibility and respect is lost from the top down. There is also a subtle culture of age discrimination, those reaching a certain age start to have 'performance issues' that are manafactured by said micromanagers, backed up by HR forcing people out of work.

Advice to Management

go somewhere else!

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

    Pros

    good vacation package
    good insurance
    good salaries

    Cons

    Employees are poorly treated, with no family/work balance. Very arrogant management that think they know everything and consulting companies are the holly grail. Many good people have left the company and still no one cares, employees (especially good ones) are thought of as replaceable.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at how you are leading this company, your people are your MOST valuable asset.
