Good place to work for new graduates.
PPD is a great place to work for any newly graduated persons. The hands on experience and trust given from day 1 is refreshing and allows you to grow your skillset quickly and broadly.
The culture is good in the company and for the most part, while busy every day, it is not a hectic place to work.
Work life balance can suffer at times despite the flexi time offered, and this is probably the main drawback for PPD.
Recognition is also another issue, with many people competing for promotions/advancement in the mid to high experience levels, it can be easy to feel shifted to one side.
All in all a good place to work, especially for graduates in the midlands.
