Company reviews
"Nice place to work"
Former EmployeeMeeting Planner
Good company and management. I learned about the pharmaceutical industry and planning meetings. A typical day at work was speaking with pharmaceutical reps planning dinner meetings. Hardest part of the job was dealing mostly with women. The most enjoyable part of the job was being appreciated, which was very rare.

Current EmployeeMeeting Planner
P-value is a family oriented and great company to work for while acheiving your goals and working with people that genuinely care about you and the work that is being done.

I have a very busy client and I enjoy speaking to the reps and doctors to help plan their educational dinner meetings. At times, the hardest part of my job is juggling many events and dealing with many different personalities.
