Pros

PCMS hires some of the best people in the industry. The Work environment is very friendly and , collaborative. Your team becomes like a family that you would do anything for. PCMS has national recognition and is privately owned so it has been able to survive and thrive during the economic downturn.

Cons

Management has no foresight and employs a reactive, instead of a proactive mentality. Problems are ignored until they become debilitating. There is always an irate customer that needs to appeased in fear of losing business. Deadlines are missed on one project because resources were stolen to meet the deadlines of another project. Clients are routinely over promised functionality by sales and high level management, and then staff are worked long hours to try to come close to what was promised.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your best asset is your people but because you won't treat them like that they are leaving in droves. Priceless knowledge has already walked out the door because you fail to change the culture. Everyone knows the issues; please stop pretending like there are no issues to try and save face. Admit when you're wrong, and go to bat for your people more often. People need to know that their work is being appreciated, and that they matter. People need to be treated like they have value, and not just like they are numbers on a resource board. Stop over promising and under achieving. Unless things change, the people who have made PCMS one of the best retail vendors are going to be making other companies the best in their respective industries.

    Common to be shifted from project to project because of the small size of the company.
