    I worked at PDI full-time

    Pros

    Good opportunity to network with other displaced saels representatives from different companieswho went through the same layoff struggles as you did

    Cons

    As big pharma gets smaller and smaller, less and less contracts are becoming available. Management seems to only be looking out for individual interestes and not the fate of the company as a whole

    Advice to Management

    Grow the business as a whole and your personal rewards will follow, do the opposite and the company will be done in less than 5 years


  2. OK CSO but not the same as the "real" pharma

    I have been working at PDI part-time

    Pros

    Flexible job. Work the days I want, only paid per call.

    Cons

    Not great pay. No car, no benefits- basically not the usually pharma goodies. Have worked in the industry a long time with some of the Big Boys- very different. I think the full time jobs pay better.

    I have been working at PDI part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, decent managers. Part time positions allow you to set your days/hours for the most part.

    Cons

    New contracts take MONTHS to get things straightened out; many times, bonuses are based on calls and not sales/market share; technology is not up to date

    Advice to Management

    Have actual reps try technology before rolling it out to everyone and having to change things.
