Company has evolved much over the years. Depending upon direct manager, can be a good work environment, or a bad one.

I have been working at PRA Health Sciences full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Some departments allow a reasonable amount of flexibility. Benefits are very good. Lots of smart people, and some managers are very good.

Cons

Compensation is not great, and seems below market. Bonuses are not consistently paid out. Limited job opportunities for growth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do a better job of retaining the good people you have.

    Over 10 years of my life wasted!!

    I worked at PRA Health Sciences part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Worked with some really good people. Certain amount of flexiblilty regarding working hours. Office facilities were good compared to other offices.

    Cons

    Management are biased towards certain people. Great deal of favouritism, particularly senior management. Taking out a grievance against a manager, (even though the employee manual states to do this, if you have problems with a manager,) is a total waste of time. HR will always take the managers side, even when there is definate proof that a manager has lied and fabricated evidence. Honesty and trust are words that are non-existent in PRAs vocabulary. The whole PRA experience has been extremely TOXIC!!!! My advice to anyone contemplating working for this company is - DON'T!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some senior management are like tumours that need to be removed, rapidly, before they have time to infect their staff and need to be stopped from 'brainwashing' new employees. More importantly they need to learn to speak the truth!

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

    Pros

    Good vacation package and medical insurance.

    Cons

    Very small IT shop, very silo/hierarchical setup means no career advancement or learning opportunities for the IT staff.

    Arrogant management that thinks they know everything. Unethical behavior by management is an accepted norm.

    Very poor management at all levels, decisions are made behind closed doors and then handed down to the team, there is no open communication. Good old boy’s system at work. Zero accountability for the management. Incompetent management has no long term vision.

    Top heavy layer - too many managers, very few workers. Lot of bureaucracy, means decisions are never taken/implemented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees, they are asset to the company.
