I have been working at Pharmaceutical Product Development full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Some training programs are high quality
CRO experience
HIghing preferences are low - easy to get in the door

Cons

Management is comprised of good ole boys club.
Initiatives are rarely tested - throw something against the wall and hope it sticks.
Technology is basic - company is ran off of personal spreadsheets
HR department is nearly incompetent - bulling, intimidation are means of managing - consistent policies are not existent
Project Managers are worst in the industry
In-fighting between departments and politics

Advice to Management

Bring in new thinking and trained department heads that can deliver on quality.
Develop tools or policies that are global in nature
Start over with the HR department

    Pros

    I think PPD is a great company for those who are starting out in the CRO industry. As long as you're willing to work hard, it'll be a rewarding experience that offers a tremendous amount of insight about the operations of a leading CRO.

    Cons

    There's very high employee turnover, but that's true of the industry as a whole. Many competitors offer higher salaries with the ability to work from home more frequently.

    Advice to Management

    Higher pay for employees, especially those who've stayed with the company for years. More equal distribution of the work-load, as it's not uncommon to see employees leaving at 7 PM and logging back on to finish work at home.
