    I worked at PRA Health Sciences full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Family-like environment, birthday cake every month for birthdays, free breakfast on Fridays, various parties and happy hours paid for by the company, employee recognition.

    Cons

    Raises are only 3% yearly, promotions are based on who the manager likes best and not who knows how to lead a group or know what they are talking about, disgruntled employees who complain every day, incompetent project managers who barely know what they are talking about, sneaky/selfish upper management. During my first 3 months, training was all over the place. I felt like I was barely trained. You're often... promised a promotion and it never happens no matter how hard you work for it.

    Advice to Management

    Promote those who deserve it and not those who brown-nose. Get with each department and see what could be improved to make employees happy. Provide additional training for those who'd like to branch out and learn other things outside of their duties.
