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

Pros

My coworkers were great! The company has great benefits as well and works to take care of employees. Managers were very open.

Cons

As a project analyst there was not much room for growth which led to high turnover from that team. Also, that position specifically was far too broad and all-encompassing to handle the level of turnover, causing analysts to be overworked with unrealistic expectations of how much of a load could be handled.

Advice to Management

Structure the Project Analyst in a role that you stop losing so many good people. The highers that are made are great, but with no room to move up the best people will constantly be leaving which is already hard to stop with so many other CROs in the area.

    I have been working at PRA Health Sciences full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people who strive to be great at serving their customers. Foster a good eam environment with sponsored team building social events. Foster career growth especially for lower level people wanted to gain valuable experience.

    Cons

    Don't always manage work/life balance well, overworking their best staff members. programming environment is old and outdated but will soon be upgraded to a state of the art environment.

    Advice to Management

    Pay what it takes to retain your best and brightest. These will become the future leaders of your company and be the mentors for the next generation of young employees. If you continue to let the fast risers leave for more money there will be an uphill battle to realize the desired growth of the company.
