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.

    I have been working at Pharmaceutical Product Development full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Dedication to training, provides all the tools needed for success, lots of room for career growth. Management really takes into account the things that are important to you for project placement. Good work/life balance. Excellent compensation.

    Cons

    Your work experience is entirely subjective with many variables. It depends on your line manager, the project you're placed on, your project manager, how the Sponsor treats you - there are many elements that affect whether or not you have a positive experience. Also, the health insurance is not that great.
