Systems Administrator (Former Employee) – Charlottesville, VA – December 19, 2017
PRA was a pretty OK place to work. Not horrible, not amazing. It was pretty average in terms of all attributes by which employees judge these companies.
I began as an application admin and developer, and quickly learned more in six months on the job than I had in four years in college. After the first year, I'd accumulated enough corporate knowledge to realize the benefit and value in such understanding of how companies work, and what their domain of services may be.
Advancement was very fairly granted for effort and results. Within a few years, I'd been promoted once and granted total salary increases of nearly 30% because I worked hard and bore fruit. By the time I left, I'd doubled my starting salary and achieved a level of reputation such that people really appreciated my work and service. Since everything I was given was in proportion to what I'd earned, I believe PRA to be a fair and equitable place of business for which to work.
The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the wide variety of people that work there -- many different fun and interesting personalities to engage with. The most difficult part was how challenging some of the technical problems were. But that was also great fun for me!
