Pros

Employees are very happy, company has good benefits for its employees and the attitude is very fair for balancing home and work life. Flexible hours balance nicely with the structure of the company and the nature of the work.

Cons

As an entry level scientist it is a good opportunity to gain lab experience and learn about the industry. After a few levels of promotion you plateau with salary and advancement usually.

    Pros

    PPD is very flexible with the work hours. There are plenty of opportunities to acquire a broad range of experience.

    Cons

    The work environment can be very intense and stressful. The degree of job satisfaction can be very dependent of the supervisor.

    Keep the flexibility for employees, provide mandatory training for managers and hold them to a higher standard regarding supervisory/people skills.

    Pros

    PPD has several entry level positions for college grads with a variety of advancement opportunities. The research team environment is fun, open and hours are very flexible.

    Cons

    Salary is low compared to almost all other CROs leading to a significant amount of turnover in every department. Most people who accept the jobs are doing to gain experience so they can apply elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more to reduce the turnover rate. This will lead to reduced spending in training and costly errors committed by inexperienced employees. Also you should listen when suggestions are made to improve efficiency especially when it comes to the software we all use.
