      PRA is a good place to work.

      Pros

      I am coming up on my one year anniversay at PRA and what a year it has been. It has been interesting to say the least with the Covid pandemic but with the support from PRA, I am thriving in this position. From the benefits, salary, and most importantly the people on my team, it has been a blessing for me to be part of this. My career path has been in big Pharma, small Pharma, and big and small CROs and I have finally found a place where I feel like I belong and be part of a team.

      Cons

      I really haven't found one.

      They are very flexible and accommodating with schedules

    9. 2.0
      Former Employee, more than 1 year

      Good work from home policy, weak and disorganized culture

      Apr 22, 2021 - Regulatory Analyst in Boston, MA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Very flexible in terms of work hours and locations. You don't always have to be at your office or working 9-5, as long as you get everything done they're happy.

      Cons

      The corporate culture is very disorganized. They don't invest in their employees. They don't provide references to former employees. Remote work technology is shockingly bad for what is basically a consulting firm.
