PRAhs is a breath of fresh air offering great training amd mentorship programs
Manager, Quality Oversight (Current Employee) –  Evansville, INJune 10, 2019
The support and encouragement from the team is unmatched providing the knowledge and expertise to have the confidence to work independently. My managers have been so supportive with my learning curve, as well as providing timely constructive feedback. They are cognizant of work life balance so burn out doesnt occur or anyone becomes too stressed. Travel is minimal but always a learning experience and is great to work with colleagues side by side.
Pros
Support, training, salary
Cons
Less paid time off than my previous company

Good pay for puppets. Poor ethics, professionalism and management. Cut throat.
Clinical Team Manager (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCMay 9, 2019
This is NOT a place for anyone who cares about clinical trial patients or quality. Employees are set-up for failure. The management is unprofessional and confirms they are driven by profit, even when the clinical trial quality is poor, the study endpoints can't be supported by the collected data and the trial data doesn't support a product that would be safe for patients. Trials are bogusly pushed forward without the supporting science via the trial completion. Each person is also expected to complete the volume of work for 3-4 people.

If you want to or do work here and are concerned by unethical conduct, before you notify any internal employee members, ensure that you document, document and document to protect yourself.
Pros
The overall salary is better than other CROs
Cons
Avoid raising any ethical concerns and focus solely on profit not quality or patient safety

Poor management, lack of leadership, professionals stifled and micromanaged, ethically misguided
Medical Research Practitioner (Former Employee) –  Lenexa, KSApril 24, 2019
The summary says it all. The details of countless situations exemplifying those behaviors/situations noted in the summary aren't important. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, intelligent, competent, diligent and dedicated person, you will not succeed here. They seek individuals that they can manipulate, trample and coerce.

It sounds harsh, but it's simply true.

My experience is unfortunately all too common there, and it is the single most disappointing professional experience I have encountered in my 24 years of working.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Weak management, reward of poor performance, no advancement, focus on

Overhead perspective only
Manager of Business Operations (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCApril 1, 2019
Overhead employees are not valued as much as those who generate revenue. Slow promotion cycle and those who have worked at PRA will several years do not get compensated as much as new hires.

My day at work
Medical Research Assistant (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, KSMarch 21, 2019
Make sure things are set up and ready to go is the main thing for PRA. This is all timed when we are working on a procedures. The best thing is to arrive at work early and make sure everything is set up for the day to come.

Great Company to work for if you value flexibility. Company culture needs improvement but doesn't seem to be a priority. Work from home is a huge plus!

Empty promises after a great performance review 1 year after sign on
Senior Medical Writer (Former Employee) –  RemoteMarch 3, 2019
Little to no room for advancement. Poor direct management. All about the bottom line for the company overall. I signed on at a lower level with promises that after a year review there would be room for advancement, salary increase and bonus. After a great performance review, my manager apologetically informed me that none of the promises would be fulfilled.
Pros
Work-life balance
Cons
Stuck with low salary and no bonus structure (despite promise)

Pros
Flexible hours, remote conection was allowed

A few career opportunities were offered

Run while you can
Lab associate (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTFebruary 25, 2019
The management at this clinic are beyond unethical. Deviations could occur and the lab manamgment would rather cover it up then own up to the deviation.

Promises of advancement are promised from day one, but when the opportunity arises they won’t even let you apply.

Frequently the schedule would be changed day off and you were expected to change your plans to accomadate poor scheduling.
Pros
Pay is above average
Cons
Lab management, work life balance
