I have been working at Pharmaceutical Product Development full-time (more than 3 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Lots of travel, a little too heavy on the detail over content, but no big complaints.

    Pros

    Easy to move up; good benefits; flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Constant travel is wearing. Not sure that the emphasis they say is on patient/subject safety is not overridden by profit.
