I have been working at PRA Health Sciences full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

For the most part there is a great team atmosphere in the contracts dept. Managers are generally easy to approach with questions/concerns.

Cons

From word of mouth and internet, pay is below industry standards. Benefits are good but could be better

Advice to Management

I have not been here long enough and with ownership changing we will have to wait and see what the future holds

    I have been working at PRA Health Sciences full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really impressive compensation package. Work/life balance is better than most other companies. Benefits and PTO are pretty standard. There's always a lot to do, but study teams and managers tend to be very understanding and helpful if you ever have questions or feel overworked. Company training is long and thorough, which is definitely is a good thing.

    Cons

    There seems to be a high employee turnover in Clin Ops. Not sure why as I haven't had any bad experiences thus far. If you're not good with computers, you'll probably want to look at a different company (everything is done through one application or another). Managers don't micro-manage for the most part unless you consistently show that you need it. PRA's great for people who are pretty seasoned in the CRO industry.

    Advice to Management

    Quarterly bonuses would be nice
