PPD

Commercial Analyst (Current Employee)
Wilmington, NC (US)

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

ProsI 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.

ConsThere'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 Senior ManagementHigher 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
