Company reviews
"Amazing workplace, little growth. "
Former EmployeeResearch Associate
Working at PRA was fun! You meet a lot of great people and you get a lot of downtime. This is an amazing job if you're in school. It's very repetitive work. You always get stuck with extra work when people call in. Which kind of leads to no break.

"Nice place to work"
Current EmployeeProject Manager
Pros: I work exclusively with the client which is a big pharma company so no interaction with icon colleagues . Cons: too new to tell but in overall I can say that work environment is not bad.

"Ambiente laboral"
