    I worked at PPD full-time

    Pros

    Apart from RSMM Bengaluru office i felt overall the company is good and employee oriented. Only the RSMM Bengaluru office sucks.

    Cons

    I would like to review only the RSMM Bengaluru office. the department heads run it like their own company and the company policies does not implement here properly.
    No professional behaviour by managers. they run it like elementary school
    no work life balance at all.
    Bossy culture, No transperency in IJP postings and promotions
    Favouritsm. you performance and promotions depends on your locality (i.e Tamil or Telugu etc.)
    No work from home facility for employees at the same time managers are allowed to work from home.
    No Flexibility.

    Advice to Management

    If the senior management really want to improve metrics of their RSMM department jus please give them little flexibility and allow some room for them to perform instead of running it like school.

    I worked at PPD full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Less work load. Laptop and good managers

    Cons

    Not a good image bcoz of its culture and training bond where no worth training was given..

    Biased in terms of training bond payment...

    Suffered many serious threats from employees...and finally the bomd is removed..

    The employees get abuses for being with PPD as its image is getting worse than local companies....

    Advice to Management

    Already bad image in Indian CRO market.

    Could have not introduced the Training bond...your name would be atleast in a good CRO list in India.

    Career growth is good, and there is a lot to learn

    I think the renumeration that is paid is not at par, it may be as good as the in the business, but if you want to retain employees for more time then you will need to pay them better.

    Advice to Management

    Please inform verbally very clearly what is the amount a candidate will​ get per month.
    Do not hide, and lie about anything.
