Survey: A look at medical device and pharma packagers’ salaries

PMP News’s 2016-2017 Salary Survey and Industry Outlook reveals a pretty stable, satisfied workforce, but employees and managers do have some concerns. How does your experience compare?

In the below article available for free download, “Satisfied and Stable, But a Little Stressed,” PMP News shares the results of an industry survey showing that salaries for pharmaceutical and medical packaging professionals are healthy, and few employees are actively looking for new jobs. A good number of these employees, however, continue to experience the corporate downsizing that we’ve noted in past survey articles, so they are likely managing more projects, with fewer resources.

How do production managers, packaging engineers, and others keep up? Managers responding to our anonymous survey describe the qualities of employees they are hiring, while employees share their experiences on the job.

For these perspectives as well as the average annual salaries for packaging professionals employed by pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers, please download the below article.
