Flex time pharmaceutical sales job
Account Sales Representative (Former Employee), Clearwater, FLSeptember 15, 2013
Pros: flex time
Cons: no health benefits
I enjoyed working flex time pharmaceutical's because I had a new baby at the time and it allowed me to enjoy work and still be able to spend quality time with my new born daughter. I learned the pharmaceutical industry and how to keep track of inventory. My day was spent speaking to doctors and pharmacist, staying organized, learning about new drugs – more... on the market and submitting any drug reactions they had concerns about. I enjoyed working out of my home office and my manager was always a phone call away if I needed anything or had a question. – less

Contract company , product training more frequent, as needed according to cantracts. good management, appropiate back up from company
Sales Territory Manager (Current Employee), Miami, FLJuly 9, 2013
Pros: worked flex time
Cons: would like full time, although will take a part time now too. small bonuses
Like any other pharmaceutical company a typical day is planned according to doctor's schedules in order to get time and attention to promote product via presentations, studies, etc. done at office, according to physician's preference, times, days, appointments. lunches, etc.
It's a continued learning experience and learning to change and adapt as needed.
The – more... most enjoyable part is to get a signature in a prescription of the product you are promoting. – less

I loved this job.
Field Customer Service Rep/Call Card Coordinator (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OhioFebruary 8, 2013
Pros: managers were great, free lunches, celebrated every ones birthdays every month
Cons: really wasn't any cons. we all were sad when they closed. i really miss that job.
Usually pretty busy. Data entered a lot. Managers were great. Always listened to what employees had to say, good or bad. Managers also let the employees have fun at what they did. Co- workers were great. Most enjoyable part was I got to talk to a lot of people on the 800 line through out the US.

PDI is a contract company
Pharmaceutical Representative (Former Employee), Dothan, ALJuly 7, 2012
One of the contract services provided by PDI is pharmaceutical sales representatives. The training is minimal and the longevity is unsecure. It is a good company for people needing to set their own schedule and pace.

Not recommended
Professional Sales Representative (Current Employee), Portland, ORMay 4, 2012
Cons: contract sales
PDI is a contract sales pharmaceutical company. There is little job security and salaries are below average for the pharmaceutical industry. Their It department does not often mesh well with the companies they are contracted with and sales results are fuzzy at best. If you are a results oriented sales person this is not the company for you.

Great opportunity for flex time positions,but contracts are not secured very often. It seems that they get beat out for bigger contracts.
Seasonal Sales Representative (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXMarch 21, 2012
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: not competitive with benefits and compensation
My experience with PDI has been overall a good one. THe flexible hours are exactly what I have needed as a mom of two young children. The compensation is not as competitive as some of the other contract companies, but the management has been great both years I have worked on the contract. It also seems that they are having trouble winning bigger contracts – more... with bigger pharma companies. This is not good for job security. – less
