    I worked at PSC full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The experienced people who were able or willing to ride out the great management experiment of 2012 are great to work with. There are great opportunities to learn this business in this company.

    Cons

    The company has been through a few ownership changes. It seems that the priorities of the senior management change quickly without setting up the proper structure to support the changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't stay locked up in the office. Go out regularly and mingle with the proles. Eat a bologna sandwich with the crew and utter a mild expletive once in a while in your discussions of everyday life as you attempt to bond with your unwashed masses.

    The people and the experience.

    Lack of consistent management, low pay, and sink or swim training.

    They should take care of the people doing the work like they take care of themselves.

    I have been working at PSC

    Pros

    Fair pay, great colleagues, financial success and a way forward for the larger division

    Cons

    Hours can be long, but today, if you aren't working 50 hours per week, you are not really needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    have more interactive meetings at the locations with local and area management. The employees love it.

    I have been working at PSC full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    *Friendly co-workers (at least within your department)
    *Ok pay
    *Decent benefits

    Cons

    *Poorly thought-out business processes - processes are designed by management who don't understand the work, creating inefficient, bureaucratic processes that pit departments against each other in a blame-game.
    *Overloaded with poorly communicated duties - expected to complete a constantly increasing workload with no overtime and meet shifting priorities and expectations with no communication.
    *No training/advancement - once in a position, there really is no career path. The company provides next to no real training (other than that done to cover itself from liability) and hires from outside most of the time, so don't expect to advance or transition between departments.
    *Constant random layoffs - the company shows no loyalty to staff, laying them off almost at random despite how long they've been with the company, then six months later hiring back a new employee to handle their duties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Business success starts with hiring, training, and retaining quality employees. Give your staff a reason to stay and PSC will prosper.

    Pros

    Good pay, good location. For the most part workforce was made up of very good people.

    Cons

    When revenues were not where the private equity company required the company went with a slash and born of the work force to the point that some of the branches had no back office support

    Pros

    Training and advancement opportunities, flexible schedule.

    Management needs training on how to be managers. Courses need to be required, especially for first time managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some management training skills

    I wish I could think of even one. By far the most poorly run company I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    Poor management, no direction, no communication, leadership is a joke.

    Quit promoting people who blow up their facilities.
