    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at PRA Health Sciences full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I feel extremely supported by my manager.

    Cons

    I work just as hard as my peers who are employed by the Sponsor; yet, my benefits are less, and I don’t receive the significant annual bonuses associated with company’s profit due to my knowledge and sacrificial labor.

    Advice to Management

    A bonus plan is long overdue and contributes significantly to company attrition. Totally understandable as your competitors offer large sign on bonuses and bonuses!
