One option you might try ( assuming you can deal with the corporate colonoscopy ) is to install GoodReader on your device. Their is then a file sharing option in iTunes on the bottom of the App section which allows you to transfer files from your pc to the iPad. The documents would then be available to view from within GoodReader. Hope this is helpful.

Bonesaw, thanks for the quick reply. I do have Goodreader and it's good to know it can do what I need it to do.
Could you advice me on what settings to change in iTunes to prevent data loss when synching my iPad with my work PC?....
I do hope Apple develop a device that will allow me to transfer files via USB thumb drive, very helpful in meetings! I would get left out when everyone is exchanging documents....

I wouldn't count on any such device in the near future - if anything they're moving away from such with their rcent emphasis on cloud computing.
Goodreader will not require iTunes - it can transfer files on it's own.

But as I just recalled, Goodreader needs iTunes if you are going to transfer over the cable, so you will need it ... http://www.goodiware.com/gr-man-tr-usb.html

I don't do a lot with iTunes as far as syncing mail,contacts and calendar, since we do that ota with the Exchange server. On my device, I just disable the sync of PIM items, and manually sync pictures and music. I always get nervous syncing PIM with two targets, say both Exchange server AND iTunes (possible consistency or duplication issues) ..that's why I disable PIM sync with iTunes and just rely on Exchange.
