    Pros

    I have worked for RPS/PRA for over 9 years now. I started as a CRA and have grown into a clinical research manager and recently an associate director of clinical operations. PRA cares and knows how to show employees they are valued. The best thing is being rewarded for great performance with what matters (money).

    Cons

    There are no downsides to working for a company that continuously gets nominated and wins "Best company to work for" year after year.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage and support growth.

    Pros

    Great benefits, education assistance and incentives for the job done

    Cons

    Their travel policy does not allow the utilization of certain airlines and hotels that are way better than the ones that they call "preferred"

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible with the travel policies and travel vendors please.
