    I have been working at Pharmaceutical Product Development

    Pros

    The hours are fairly flexible.

    Cons

    Management tends to give more work to the hard working folks. Work is not evenly distributed and lack of acknowledgement for a hard working individual. Feel like just another number.

    Advice to Management

    Show more appreciation for employees.

    Pros

    Global existence (85 countries), Strong project pipe line, high profitability, Strong management team, Very much adaptive to new technologies, CRO with full service provider, Global ranking in first top 10 companies

    Cons

    Lack of work life balance for people working as Clinical Team manager, Ineffective line management system, Lack of support, to many systems leads to chaos, In effective on line training system which helps only to document that the training. Ineffective resource allocation model, Very complex structure (at least for project management). The employee usually dose not get time for self development (to learn additional skills, to develop additional competency).

    Advice to Management

    LINE MANAGEMENT: The management would need to work on line management system/ managers. The line manager supporting CTM should take more initiative to guide CTM in project management, instead of only attending weekly meeting and criticizing CTM. Based on their experience the line manager should give inputs to the CTMs to prioritize and proactively identify the most vulnerable issue out of many issues faced by CTM. The management must provide appropriate training/ refresher training in people management to the line managers (LM) . Company should train the LM's to understand that each individual has his own style of working, different characteristics. The LM's should be train to understand human aspects/ individual traits. This would help LM's to give inputs and required support to the mentee. LM's should understand that the you can not use same method for all individual while dealing with them.

    RESOURCE ALLOCATION: Many time due to lack of clarity or delay in resource allocation, CTM usually land up doing many task which could be done by other resources. The resource allocation should be clear and should be done in timely manner. At some point of time if resource is not available then required support should be provided.

    Training: The online training module is not a complete solution for all kind of trainings. It is good for SOP and WPD's and certain on line trainings. However a class room training should be taken for systems like Forecaster, Unit Grid.

    HR: The management should involve HR while designing all strategies. I would also suggest that the HR should interact with Client to understand their culture, working style, Client company structure etc intermittently. This will definitely help HR to give inputs while selecting team. An internal system should be in place to track/ analyze the skills, competencies and traits of each employee. Please note that this should be design and analyze scientifically. The line managers can not replace HR.

    Work life balance: The management should ensure that there is a work life balance. This can be taken care by allotting the work appropriately, by selecting appropriate resources in terms of skills and attitude, by providing effective support.
