    I have been working at PDI full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Indepence and full territory responsibility as you manage your own large territory with little supervision from District manager and limited interaction with district members; usually conference calls to share best practices and review sales progress reports.

    Cons

    Focus is on sales performance; period. Emphasis is on sales growth and total NRX, TRX sales activity with achieved call frequency requirements on key targets. No interaction with contract company but rely on their sales reports so keep accurate records to compare so that bonuses are paid per results achieved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a mentor and a resource to sales reps.

    I have been working at PDI as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    The core group of workers are great. Everyone wants to help each other achieve.

    Cons

    Executive team is out of touch with their workers and only worried about achieving their bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look in the mirror and try and listen to the workers. Stop trying to cut your way to profitability and overworking those that stay.

    I have been working at PDI full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Remember the little people who make this organization run every day.

    I have been working at PDI full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Can 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.

    Cons

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