    Pros

    Not pros or cons..just a different perspective..

    I currently work at PRS and while I understand and even agree with some of the comments posted recently, I feel like they are all limited to one view of the story. Like everything, it’s not all black or white, and I feel the need to give people a slightly different perspective. PRS has been known to be a great employer for years – you just need to look at how many people have been here for over 10 years to get the idea – I am pretty sure this is un-matched in the industry. PRS enjoyed many years of growth, and a limited competitive environment – in exchange, it always rewarded its employees generously and did not look back (that includes salaries, opportunities, flexible work schedules, extra time off etc)

    In the past few years, competition has significantly increased along with clients wanting cheaper and faster research. So, what do they do? They decide it is time to look at their business and make some changes to stay in the game without compromising what they stand for – and that isn’t always an easy thing to do.

    Yes, these changes are un-settling for a lot of us. Yes, these changes, meant that people had to be let go. Yes, these changes mean that we all have to learn how to work differently and it takes time – it takes time for all of us to adjust and this means we are all working harder this year. Yes, 2014 has been a tough year, for the people who left and for us who stayed and worked harder than ever. BUT, what happens if we do not change? Has anyone considered this? What happens if because we refuse to change, we start losing our competitive edge and loose our clients? How many people would have to be let go then? Regardless of how hard this is, PRS actually is trying to remain competitive in order to keep growing and continue to reward its employees.

    I still believe PRS is a great company to work for – I have worked for other agencies out there and I can tell you the workload issues and the work life balance is something everyone struggles with at times, so please keep this in mind! And actually PRS has seen quite a few people leave and come back through the years so that has to mean something?

    Anyway, my 2 cents..there is always two sides to a story.

    Cons

    Again..this is not about pros or cons
