    I worked at Pharmaceutical Product Development full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with my co worker pulling together to get project done by the deadline.

    Cons

    Not much from for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees what they are worth.

    Pros

    Flexibility with schedule, Fast paced job, Challenging, Nice management

    Cons

    Overworked, underpaid for work they expect from us, although company makes billions they are cheap, no real backups so it makes going on vacation hard

    Advice to Management

    They simply need to hire more people. We do projections at my job and almost everyone i talk to projects that to fully do their job they would have to put in the hours of a full time employee AND a part time employee. You literally would have to work OT every week to be anywhere near caught up.

    Pros

    If you're lucky enough to have been accepted by the "in crowd" of your department, then life here is pretty good, such as you will then be invited to join them to go to private departmental "in crowd" lunches and other such get-togethers. If you've not been accepted into the departmental "in crowd", it's ok - it's not that awful because you're still treated very politely - you're just not invited to play in any reindeer games.

    Cons

    Outdated technology, old fashioned management style, super clique-y environment.

    Advice to Management

    Lean in to the 21st century. Maybe consider updating company computer browser from IE8.

    I worked at Pharmaceutical Product Development full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The employees other than the managers were really nice and I do miss them.

    The managers are very demanding and really do not care about you on a personal level. Very passive aggressive environment. I am so glad it is over.

    Treat employees as people.
