    I have been working at PRA Health Sciences full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I'm new so maybe my opinion will change, but I have been with other Fortune 500 companies and this is the best onboarding process I have experienced.

    Generous PTO
    Tuition Reimbursement
    Flexibility/Work Life Balance
    Supportive, Friendly, Talented coworkers
    Management/Upper Management is approachable, never had that before
    Career Opportunity and Development is a focus right from day one

    Cons

    Nature of the work can make for difficult/stressful times.

    Highly regulated industry, which leads to a lot of focus on the details.

    Advice to Management

    Onboarding process and the culture at my office has me truly excited to be joining this organization. I hope management is truly focused on development of their own staff like they say, I would love to learn, grow, and have a long career at PRA Health Sciences.

    I have been working at PRA Health Sciences full-time

    Pros

    OK pay compared to some companies

    Cons

    Old systems that do not integrate. Monitoring reports are 99 questions, many are redundant. No bonuses and no room for advancement. Benefits are awful and expensive. Zero perks. Forced to use the travel options they choose for you and these could change in 6 months messing up any status you may have earned. Too many protocols to handle at once. Skype for internal messaging which is recorded, very micro managed. Training is a nightmare, test are given with noway to see what you've missed making some impassable. No phone given, only stipend of 60 bucks which is taxed so basically nothing. It seems to be slower than snails. Currently seeking another company as this one needs so much help, now I know why the turnover is so high.

    Advice to Management

    Everything needs a rework.
