    I worked at Pharmaceutical Product Development full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good experience of the industry.
    Granta Park is pleasant.
    Home working when requested.
    Good canteen, although many people just work thorough lunch.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Don’t expect to be doing anything else of an evening.
    A lot of unpaid overtime, do not expect any time off in lieu and probably not any thanks. No slack in the system so staff are expected to do overtime due to other staff having left, are ill or on holiday. You will earn your holiday with a lot of overtime pre and post your time off.
    Training in some departments is poor.
    Too many different systems that do not work together. Some rationalisation required.
    Difficult to get to know people even in the same building.
    Lots of people are bad tempered with each other. Usually because they have too much to do and are always stressed.
    Below inflation pay rise – most people got a 1.3% pay rise last year.
    High turnover. Most people leave because competitors are offering higher pay or due to excessive workload.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure appropriate staffing levels.
    Stop worrying about saving a few ££ on colour photocopying and give people time to actually put some continuous improvement processes in place if you really want to save money and improve service. You are overloading many people so they are only doing the urgent tasks, which is leading to mistakes and poor service, which is ultimately a false economy.
