    I have been employed by PRA HS for 2 years. By far is it the best company that I have worked for in my career. Management is supportive and strives to see you succeed.

    Cons

    Medical benefits are expensive if you want a good plan. however I guess that's the a product of our current healthcare system.

    Pros

    PRA has been a great place to work. The environment is open and friendly, line managers allow their reports to act as autonomously as they'd like and do their best to ensure employees feel their contributions are appreciated.

    Cons

    No bonuses or stock options, benefits are pretty expensive

    Advice to Management

    Consider a fair bonus structure to ensure employees feel valued and to get on par with other CROs
