Pros

Great company to have on your resume, once working at PBG all companies know that you are a hard worker. Extremely fast paced environment. The benefits are some of the best, not only in the industry, but of all companies.

Cons

There is a real lack of leadership. The normal operation mode is reactive not proactive, so get used to always being short of staffing. When managers from the business unit come to town, get ready to go all out to create the craziest dog and pony show for them, instead of showing them the real world. Best part of the Dog and Pony show is that you get to take it down hours after they leave town. Customer Reps are always being asked to work their "off days" due to the lack of staffing. In this role you are expected to be on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week, it does not matter what is going on in your personal life, work comes first. You can also always count human resources to make anything more complicated then what it needs to be. It seems as if they are always working against you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember that your front line is what the customer sees every day. If they hate their job, what does that say about the company. This location needs an overhaul.

    Pros

    autonomy & independence in field roles, culture focuses on winning, good sales and leadership training, HR function is strongly positioned within the company

    Cons

    short term focus on period sales & operating targets sacrifices long term decision making, culture highlights star performances rather than good sustainable processes, too much "me-first" culture at HQ

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    recognize & promote employees who elevate the HR function not just those who can package & market their "story", establish real training & development for HR professionals
