Toxic place to work
Written by Labs (Current Employee) from Athlone, County Westmeath on 22 October 2018
PPD is a good place to work if you are fresh out of university and looking to gain experience. Past 1-2 years at PPD, there is little to no progression. Additionally, the training is very basic for new starters and there isn't a lot of support once you move from new employee training to your group.

Promotions are given based on friendships or people
