“As a military family, we have had to relocate. PPD has been very understanding of my family’s needs and, as a remote employee, they have made it very easy for me to transition to a new location. Overall, PPD respects work-life balance and this is just a part of it.”

“I transitioned from the Air Force to a finance role at PPD and the company has demonstrated time and again how much they value my military background and the unique skills that come with it. Joining the team at PPD has enabled me to continue working with people passionate about improving the lives of others and has made my transition from active duty an immeasurably positive experience. ”
