    I worked at PDI part-time

    Pros

    Work life balance
    Set own hours
    Senior management leadership was apparent
    Will often have other contracts that you can work on when yours is up if you were a valued employee

    Cons

    Part time so no benefits but that was understood
    No company car with all contracts
    Contract's CRM tool left a lot to be desired

    Advice to Management

    Continue what you are doing to keep good contracts coming in and being as honest as possible with employees about said contacts.

    The nature of contract sales is not always stable and can make long term/consistent employment difficult. Corporate does not communicate well or consistently with the field force. Sales Data can be lagging and inconsistent.

    Corporate needs to be better in touch with field force needs.
