Pros

PSC is fast moving company that always is looking to improve and expand. The client is the most important person at PSC and PSC bends over backward to satisfy them. If you have something to contribute, you will asked to help.

As long as you can understand the big picture of how PSC operates, on a client satisfaction and client restrained budget, it can be a satisfying place to work.

Cons

PSC does it's best for its employees in the field, but often is subjected to "cut-throat" bidding by its competitors. This leaves a very narrow profit margin and benefits and incentives for field employees. It seems as if PSC at times is being "not caring" to the field, but they are only managing what the client wants to give. Tough economic times dictates the business.

PSC is an Israeli owned and managed company. Those that adapt and learn often do well. Those that do not adapt and expect the company to change for them will be unhappy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Always to your best to maintain serious and loyal employees.

    Pros

    PSC is a quickly growing company, and seems to bring in a decent revenue. They seem to give people who are not college educated a chance to grow, promote, and succeed, but it could be up to a decade or so before that even happens.

    Cons

    Management is lacking in professionalism, fairness, and friendliness. They play favorites, and give their own Israeli people more promotions, raises, and recognition than a regular employee. Many in the corporate office forms cliques and will speak in their own language, thus alienating other employees in the office.
    Management does not respect its employees, nor does it treat everyone fairly and equally. They pick and choose the people to give paid holidays, sick days, and other benefits to. I was told after several months there that I would be given more responsibility and that they would cross-train me on different projects. That never happened.
    Management were at times condescending and even downright rude. All in all not a good place to work. The 1 year I was there at the Corporate office, they were unable to keep anyone they hired around the same time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all employees fairly and equally when it coms to promotions and benefits. Management's attitude can be downright rude and condescending towards some of its employees. Have an ALL English policy in the office and include everyone!! Finally, put more effort into employee retention and development.

    Pros

    There once was a time when PCS was at the top of thier game. Then the owner Moshe went hands off and disappeared. The company went downhill fast. He failed to foster the early relationships that lead him to growth and most of the clients left. They still have a few decent clients but they pay horribly. There really aren't any pros to working for PSC.

    Cons

    Disconnected management that doesn't focus on client satisfaction or employee retention. The benefits are horrible. They offer a package, if you ask, but you pay 100%. The backend support is also horrible and no one seems to knows their left hand from their right. Payroll got better but a few years ago it wasn't uncommon to have pay check issues on every check.

    Their pay is way off from what others offer for similar positions. I think it's because they accept low budget contracts and it's a passdown affect.

    Tough to understand at times. They hire mostly Isreali people to manage and their style is extremely course. They need to also understand it is very rude to speak Isreali among other non-Isreali's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop berating your employees like they are soliders on the Gaza strip. Beyond that, good luck. Since your company has been going downhill the last 10 years you'll need it.
