    Pros

    For the most part, this is a good company, with decent benefits and some flexibility. Free breakfast on Fridays, free coffee, nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Workload can be very demanding at times, there is no consistency in regards to processes and how to get things done, mainly a trial by fire type of position. It can be hard to get your footing and truly learn the job, which can sometimes be frustrating - expect the learning curve to take at least a year to get to the point where you feel as if you're not drowning.

    Pros

    PRA is a great place to work for project managers who want to feel supported. PRA is a big company, but that's not so bad after you've tried to work for a start-up like I have. Management is supportive and flexible and adaptive to the needs of staff and Sponsors. They're also willing to listen to good ideas and take risks. They were quick in hiring compared to other CROs and thorough in the interview process. I work with some great people and really enjoy going to work every day there. PRA won CRO of the year for the 2nd or 3rd consecutive year...they are doing things right. Oh...and there's free breakfast every Friday.

    Cons

    A big company feel.
    Big network of systems to navigate and finding the information you need (at least the systems are all integrated, though).
