    Pros

    Unique culture, some great people.

    Cons

    Lack of clear career pathing/opportunities, salary below industry average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify - most of the executive management team have only worked at PSS their entire careers, which leads to a culture of "yes-men" and lack of fresh ideas.

    Pros

    Incredible culture. Great people. You can work remote on occasion. There are a lot of things going on, so you can do just about anything.

    Cons

    There is some really bad code in there. The original eCommerce app that is still in use is a compendium of anti-patterns. It takes some work to get used to it. The good news is that piece by piece we are refactoring it into a much less painful beast and pulling services out and building new ones.

    Pros

    Great environment to work in. The company goes above and beyond to make you feel like one of there own. Many great Perks.

    Cons

    Some Favoritism is shown from the Management, which can be a bummer if your not the most like guy in the place. and since you dont leave until the work is done means alot of long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    alot of things go on in warehouse that a "Blind Eye" gets turned away from. you need to dig into things a bit and clean house.

    Pros

    great leadership and support - friendly co-workers and excellent teamwork - flexible scheduling and coverage for vacation / time off - good benefits that improve year to year - easy access to helpful resources

    Cons

    It is a very large corporation so it is not as tightly knit as a small privately owned medical supply company. It takes a bit more effort to get change that is needed when you are part of a smaller branch of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stronger levels and methods of communication between branches would be beneficial for employees. This would help in ensuring everyone is on the same page even though there are long distances between us.
