Great place to work, but had some growing pains

Former Employee - Senior Analyst in McLean, VA
Former Employee - Senior Analyst in McLean, VA

I worked at PPC full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Friendly co-workers, and mostly surrounded by people who are engaged in their work. Very knowledgeable staff who will help you learn anything you're ambitious towards.

Cons

Multiple company sales and restructuring took a toll on the friendly, small-business feel of the company. Loss of several big contracts forced the restructuring of some of the business groups.

    Great job, but the company was really struggling. That lack of focus was pervasive.

    I worked at PPC full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The interaction with the people was a lot of fun. I had as much latitude to do what I wanted to get done, and a felt that I got a number of things accomplished. In that regard I had a great job.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, management really didn't seem that interested in security. While I knew that I was getting things done, I never got feedback about my work, or the direction in which I was taking some things. Ultimately, my position was eliminated along with a number of other people when the company was sold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope the current crop of managers actually pays attention to some of the security issues that plagued the previous team.

    Great employees and friendly environment. Executive team is untrustworthy and incompetent.

    I have been working at PPC full-time

    Pros

    95% of the employees are great people and I consider friends.

    Cons

    The executive team is untrustworthy. You may think you are adding value to the organization and the executive team will tell you, you are safe from lay offs. Then out of nowhere they will lay you off.

    Employees are in shock as to how the executive team still has their jobs. They have lost contracts because of poor performance, they haven't won any new business in years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Self reflection!
    Keep the employees that add value and cut the ones that have cost the organization money. Common sense!
