    I worked at Pharmaceutical Product Development

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule
    Can work from home
    Salary is close to industry standard although could be a little higher

    Cons

    Line-managers are promoted based on who they know
    Mid-level managers hide from their staff
    Very little communication within departments and between departments
    No clear vision of where the company is going
    Executive management likes to changes horses mid-race; the end result is that nothing gets accomplished
    Promotions are based on favoritism
    There is no recognition for your effort and hard-work
    There is little difference in raises and bonus between top performers and slackers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to make decisions and stick to their guns. Show some leadership ability and stop being afraid of making mistakes. Get rid of all the mid-level managers who add zero value to the company. Attending meetings for 40 hours a week does not mean you are productive if nothing ever gets accomplished during the meetings.

    Pros

    flexible, interesting work, challenges abound

    Cons

    rigid structure, not much upward movement, not sufficient recognition of telnet and achievement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Telnet is the most important asset to a company like PPD. The company should be proactive in recruiting talented people in order to grow.
