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

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.

    Former Employee - Manager in Raleigh, NC (US)

    I worked at PRA International 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.

    I have been working at PRA International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Advanced in technologies. Very accommodating. Working from home not a problem.

    Cons

    Very high workloads. Often multiple projects at a time, even in start up phase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Avoid overloading staff with work: these are likely to leave and will not be cost effective.
