I worked at Pharmaceutical Product Development full-time

Pros

You wlll receive the best training in cGMP. Your colleagues are good people to work with.Fair commitment to work-life balance.

Cons

Demanding timelines. The entry level work is highly routine. Not and R&D environment or culture that embraces, develops, and sells new technologies. consequently there is a tendency to try to play hurryup and catchup when customers are turned away.

Advice to Management

Invest in the people (in all aspects) to encourage them to want to come to work everyday.

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

    Pros

    Despite the low pay, the experience gained at PPD is absolutely invaluable. One can learn the ins and outs of an GMP regulated environment, a skill that is not taught during undergraduate schooling. Keep an open mind and learn as much as you can from highly qualified employees.

    Cons

    Low pay and small raises, sometimes necessary to work overtime

    Advice to Management

    Establish realistic time frames for completing projects.

    Pros

    One deal breaker that shines with PPD is the employees, good group of people to work with which is a morale booster.

    Cons

    Poor salary, more so if you have been with the company for a certain amount of years. Management needs to listen to employees concerns, and be flexible with work/home life, Promote within first, before going external.

    Advice to Management

    Listen, respect, and promote your employees that have acquired good talent and skills set on the job. Also need to show employees you value he/she talent.
