    I worked at PRA Health Sciences full-time (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.

    Advice to Management

    First like your employees, don't create politics among themselves. And try to appreciate at least by words.

    Pros

    I feel extremely supported by my manager.

    Cons

    I work just as hard as my peers who are employed by the Sponsor; yet, my benefits are less, and I don’t receive the significant annual bonuses associated with company’s profit due to my knowledge and sacrificial labor.

    Advice to Management

    A bonus plan is long overdue and contributes significantly to company attrition. Totally understandable as your competitors offer large sign on bonuses and bonuses!
