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

    Pros

    It was worth working with PRA as I grew more in my field and was given the opportunity to explore my carrier furthermore. If I didn't have to move to Sweden for my husband's work I would have continued working with PRA at my clients location

    Cons

    Since I was working at a client location, I wasn't well connected with the rest of the PRA in house colleagues

    Current Employee - Senior Project Manager 

    I have been working at PRA Health Sciences full-time

    Pros

    Career growth, opportunity to speak and learn

    Cons

    Chennai office is the worst ever place. There are 3 people who think they are PRA and they want everyone dance to their tunes. They do not know how to behave professionally. The attitude of those 3 useless people is highly idiotic that people who can think can never work in that Chennai office.

    Good company but the Chennai location run by bunch of idiots. Managers are incapable. Worst internal politics. No Work life balance. Whatever the effort you will put in work, you will get zero appreciation. If you can tolerate 4 employees (who thinks themselves as pillars of pra Chennai location), you can survive.

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

    Pros

    There are no such pros.

    Cons

    There's no ethical value in working at PRA in Chennai office. At the end of day, you will get tons of work and the timeline been decided by the chennai management. Chennai office has the worst work culture, there are no coding standards as such being followed. By the name of process, there will be lots of politics - no doubt on that. HR is completely waste, will not accept any requests, just for the sake they're appointed. Work pressure and creating politics among employees is their intention. PRA global office has good culture, where as Chennai RA puram office doesn't have any as such. Completely waste of time working there.
