    Good for life Balance but not for growing career.

    Great place to work!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Parsippany, NJ

    ProsI love the people I work with and the flexibility and PTO policy at PDI. The leadership team is very visible and likes to communicate to employees. The company is small so I have more breadth in my job than I have in the past at large companies. We are jeans/casual everyday which is great! Summer hours are also a nice perk.

    ConsThe CSO business doesn't get much respect and being on the services side of the pharma industry is challenging. I hope that the new digital project and diagnostics business will add more revenue to the company moving forward.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember the little people who make this organization run every day.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Disappointing.

    Pharmaceutical Sales Representative (Current Employee)

    ProsCan get foot in door for Pharmaceutical experience. Company was great to work for 5 years ago. Bank of Days is fair, and added benefit of having week of between Christmas and New Year if contract allows. Have had two great district managers.

    ConsUpper Management rarely communicates with sales force. No communication on new contract attainment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
