Poor training and poor management. Enough said. If you do not wish to put everything you are into a job; all your effort, attention, dedication and sacrifice, only to be treated like a disposable, insignificant nobody, then do not even look at PPD. PPD will not demonstrate any commitment to you as an employee; they will not respect you as an individual, nor as a productive contributor to their business. Please do not take my word for it; their extremely high turnover rates are more than enough evidence of this. PPD has downsized it's entire Austin, TX finance division, leaving uncountable individuals out of work and their Wilmington, NC office has replaced nearly every face in finance. PPD is a revolving door of employment. If you are truly looking for a sound, solid company that will appreciate your dedication, hard work and attention to detail, look elsewhere; PPD is not what you are looking for.
None of any significance.
