    I have been working at PPD full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    They pay well compared to other CROs

    Cons

    It used to be enjoyable but increasingly the workload has become totally unreasonable. There is no emphasis on work life balance. Its all about profit. In my current team, 4 have gone on sick leave due to stress, and 2 are leaving due to overwhelming workload.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on people rather than profit!

      I worked at PPD part-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Flexible working hours. Friendly environment with great facilities in a beautiful location good for walking. Onsite sports and social facilities.

      Cons

      Corrupt management. No clear direction - lines always blurred to cover own tracks. A manager that lies their way out of a sticky situation. No retention of staff. Employees feel undervalued and unsupported. No protection from work overload.

      Advice to Management

      Be more like Dave

      I worked at PPD full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Friendly staff , some teams can be lovely to work in. Good benefits provided by company. Can be a nice environment when management is not in.

      Cons

      Horrible and unorganised management, terrible leadership and training provided is non existent. Very big on blaming staff members instead of working as a team. High turn over of stuff in the company because there is a lack of development and communication between management. A lot of staff members leave because of the terrible lack of support from management. Standards have dropped majorly!

      Advice to Management

      Train staff and do not blame staff for your faults!

      I have been working at PPD full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Cutting Edge Developments in healthcare and technology. Employee friendly policies. Friendly environment and rich work life Balance.

      Cons

      Internal management policies might not be fully transparent to all employees and thus leading to ambiguity in visions and missions and personal career growth.

      Advice to Management

      Senior management might need to streamline their processes and gain more visibility into individual performances of all employees at all levels.
