Good company to work for
I enjoyed my time at PPD. My team was great to work with and extremely collaborative. My home life balance was good and I'd definitely recommend this company.

The company is excellent when it comes to training. The pay is low and the work is extensive. The hours can be late and the deadlines are unrealistic at times.

Still hiring. Very competitive salary. Bouts of micro-managing. Management tends to put the cart before the horse and then go back to perform foundational work that should have been completed before initiatives launch.
Principal | Wilmington, NC | Feb 26, 2020
My interview went as expected for a company of its size. I had a good experience for the most part. The company has improved over the years and that is very positive.

I love working at PPD, its super relaxed and at your pace (as long as you do your job). The management is chaos right now because of a big transition but its an incredible place to work and they are super understanding and flexible
Director of Information Technology | Morrisville, NC | Apr 18, 2019
Great people, hard work, no recognition
Spent 50~70 hours per week in a management role with global direct reports attempting to keep pace with the expectations of the role. Absolute chaos in management at the time. The change from being a public company to being a private company resulted in a loss in people to a point where quality was being impacted. Meetings to discuss that were attended but unwelcome. Hard times for people who like to build in quality. While quality was waning, technology was being brought onboard to attempt to offset the loss in headcount with mixed results.
ProsTechnology innovation was impressive
ConsTechnology innovation was not well executed

Nice Place to Work
A typical day consists of attending several management meetings. I also have bi-weekly meetings with direct reports. Currently, I am working on a guide that will assist the Project Assistants on tips performing different aspects of their jobs.

There are better chemistry places in Madison
Working at PPD was okay. I do not have a lot of good things to say, but not a lot of bad things. One negative is the work life there has become a bit too strict which stresses employees out more.

Wonderful people and challenging work.
The part of the company I was working in had really wonderful and energetic people. The managers are very willing to help and guide no matter your learning style.
