    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.
