Advancement and Career Ladders
Career ladders are structured progressions of job levels within a professional organization. They outline the various stages of career advancement, each with increasing responsibilities and higher-level tasks. Employees start at an entry level position, gain experience and skills, complete training and potentially obtain new certifications in order move up to mid-level positions. With further expertise and leadership abilities, they can reach management levels that will lead teams of employees or take on specific subject matter expert roles. Career ladders provide employees with clear goals and motivations for professional growth and development.
IPS has clear goals (OKRs) from leadership to guide employees to determine their personal goals and skills to grow their career, as well as align with corporate goals.
Hear What Our Employees Say About Working at IPS
Knowledge, Skill and Passion.
Knowledge, Skill and Passion isn't just a tagline. It has meaning; it's what we bring to the client's table. It's the catalyst for excellence. It's years of education and hard-earned experience that bring us the knowledge and the skill, but where does the passion come from? That story is different for each of us, and those stories can bring us together.
Group Lead, CQV
I am a senior project manager for IPS, overseeing qualifications and projects in the New Jersey region. I am a pharmaceutical engineer with all the training and certification that applies. However, I can assure you that executing a project relies on skills and relationships I did not acquire in engineering school. That is true the world over, particularly in my region, where I rely on my team and a network of colleagues to overcome problems and execute our plans.
As a leader, I find myself in a great position to mentor. I tell those I work with that the “net” in a network does not stand for safety netting. Instead, a network is a pathway, with each node – each person – a guide for finding your way.
My name is Janine Squire, and my passion is building networks that together stand up to the industry’s most complicated challenges.
Director, Process Architect
Laboratory design is an inherently complex challenge, regardless of the project's scale. While the architectural and technical challenges may be similar for most laboratory projects, each client's programmatic needs are unique and offer a new design opportunity. Similarly, it's gratifying to assist our clients in designing spaces that might enable breakthrough research within a collaborative environment where ideas are exchanged in the work.
My name is Christopher Hall, and the merging of knowledge, skill & passion for integrating technological innovation with design excellence is why I find laboratories fascinating.
Sustainability Engineer, EMEA
Our clients come to us as trusted innovators. We know how the industry operates. We know the new technologies and trends that can translate into a sustainable, efficient process for them, whether through the additive power of small changes or the drastic rethinking of entire systems. IPS encourages knowledge-sharing across our Global Sustainability Team and applies it to our clients’ needs.
I put sustainability into practice each day for our clients. Most companies have sustainability goals, keyed into the UN 2030 campaign or some similar metrics, but not everyone has a clear, effective pathway to meeting those goals. I use my life experience of problem-solving and engineering expertise to help clients realize their aspirations. If you don’t have passion, you are not going to change the world.
My name is Baljit Bhogal, and I am going to build a more sustainable world.
We help design facilities that existed only in the minds of clients and turn their dreams into practical reality. We recently finished a project for a client that will change many lives for the better. While I cannot share the name of the client or the therapeutic, I will say that we were able to triple their capacity to make an in-demand cancer drug to fulfill unmet patient needs. When I think about what is important – when everyone is stressed trying to meet deadlines and finish deliverables– I’m reminded of how critical and meaningful our work is to patients.
I am a woman of two worlds. I balance the pursuit of lifesaving therapies with sustainability. I want to do more in the fight against climate change while meeting the needs of our clients. With each project, I would like to push a little more to integrate conservation into the design and encourage everyone a little more to pursue best environmental practices and integrate renewable energy into our future strategies.
My name is Sherry Chen, and I am a woman who combines her passions and her work to create the best of both worlds.
Director of Industrial Engineering
Instead of offering our clients solutions, I now provide possibilities. What if we could make one tiny change to the locker room that will increase the rate we can get workers into a cleanroom? What if twice as many people work in a given space as production expands? What if the racks were 70% bigger? Or smaller? What if we put the door here? What if this idea was more efficient? What if that change could decrease risk?
Our team partners with the architects and engineers across IPS. We’re offering “What if?” scenarios to clients with data to support the solutions. We’re offering a robust service to clients, whether they’re building a facility from the ground up or redesigning an existing space
My name is Kevin Swartz, and my passion is building networks that together stand up to the industry’s most complicated challenges.
