    I have been working at NNE Pharmaplan full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great working environment and social atmosphere. Growing company with many opportunities locally and abroad. One of the best benefits packages of any company around. You get to work with and learn from colleagues all over the world as NNE Pharmaplan truly is a global company. You get to experience the cultural differences of the company as a whole while developing great relationships.

    Cons

    Like any growing company, there are challenges. There can be some longer working hours at times. There is also the fast paced environment that is not for everyone.

    Pros

    Good people trying to do good work. When a project is underway, everyone is focused on the common goal.

    Cons

    There are gaps in activity, and the projects are inconsistent in how they are managed and most projects are edited and managed by managers with little design experience so they do not take into account lots of the detailed time to complete a facilities project. They also like to have a lot of meetings that are not accounted for in the design budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Coordinate with the CAD team to better determine the necessary time to do the actual drafting work. Consider hiring a CAD Manager to help the Facilities Design Team produce drawings consistently from project to project. Do not cut the hours for CAD or meetings that will eventually end up running the project over-budget.

    I worked at NNE Pharmaplan

    Pros

    Not enough to outweigh the cons.

    Cons

    Company does not have good values; does not care for its employees; The morale of employees is so low that visitors to the office notice it instantly. Clique-ish. Very bad business practices - The company spends a lot of money on unnecessary things even if money isn't coming in from projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone equally. Listen to your employees when they have concerns about improving the company. Upper management are not the only important employees.

    I have been working at NNE Pharmaplan full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    NNE Pharmaplan is a great company to work for. Management has a good vision on how to grow and they are doing well in executing on it also.
    There are many opportunities to work with different types of systems, to work with different companies, both local and international.
    The company is still relatively small in the US, so it has a nice feel to it. At the same time, we have offices in many different countries so there is a large pool of knowledge and resources available.

    Cons

    Expected to travel on a whim sometimes, but that's consulting life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at NNE Pharmaplan full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The executives of the company are very approachable so the company tends to have a very small business feel to it. But the company as a whole is well-funded and can afford to make investments. I work as a contract engineer and I enjoy the assignments because they are with premium companies doing very important work. They have high standards for their people and when you perform, you are rewarded.

    Cons

    Some of the basic organization is lacking and execution of landing people on projects can be a little unnerving when communication breaks down. It helps to make sure you are helping the communications as much as possible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay accessible to the employees and make sure rewards for good work are not just limited to bonuses. Work on the fundamentals of making the organization effective and efficient. Always follow through on sales leads and stay persistent with the core clients.

    Freedom to do an outstanding job

    Current Employee - Process Engineer in Morrisville, NC
    Current Employee - Process Engineer in Morrisville, NC

    I have been working at NNE Pharmaplan full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    NNE Pharmaplan is a global firm focused on delivering value added business consulting and engineering services to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry. Employees are expected to be able to go anywhere in the world, and working with people from all cultures, deliver outstanding solutions to our customers.

    To do this, the company grants it's employees a great deal of freedom to accomplish the job. That means you have to be a self-starter and be comfortable working with little or no supervision. NNE Pharmaplan is a results oriented company. How you achieve those results is left up to you. That's what I mean when I say the company gives it's employees the "freedom to do an outstanding job".

    Cons

    As with any consulting job, the willingness to travel with little or no warning is expected. In addition, when dealing with project deadlines, you must be willing to work whatever is necessary to meet the established project goals.

    I have been working at NNE Pharmaplan full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Truly incredible benefits, 9% 401k match, bosses who did what you do so understand what you need to succeed. Very focused on getting the job done and they let you do it and don't kill you with lots of needless reports. No politics that I have seen. If you're an engineer and want to do your job in a decent environment for good pay this is a good company. Lots of potential opportunities, especially international. Quarterly meetings that let everyone know where the company is, how we are doing vs goal etc. Seems like the new US management really wants this to succeed and be a powerhouse.

    Cons

    Came through a downturn a while back but management was very transparent. Seems to be on the upswing. Sometimes feel a bit out of touch as we are small US branch of large Danish Company and many of us work remote at different plants. Not much you can do about that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. It's working and people are feeling much better about themselves and the company.
