Determining whether a package or module should be installed globally using pip

Is there a rule of thumb in deciding where to install a package? What makes a package, other than security vulnerabilities, better to install globally e.g. using sudo pip install, or by changing directory to tmp folder, or by using virtualenv?

Thank you python users, you're my only hope,
