    I worked at Palm Coast Data full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Depending on the department you work in, people take their job very seriously. Some of the work is even rewarding. And if you can get on your manager's good side, you may even get a small raise (when raises are given). The dress code is very casual in most areas and and less than business casual in others. Dressing as if you were going to a night club or gym seems to be OK too.

    Cons

    The company seems to always be running in crisis mode. There are too many manual procedures that lead to mistakes that happen all too often. In most areas there isn't the right or enough people to get the job done right. The right management is not in place to take this company into the 21st century (yes, they haven't made it there yet). With the current management in place, they will surely keep sinking and continue with the layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are the problem. Take a good look at what the company is and where it needs to go and get the right people in place to make this company thrive again. You have spent too many years letting this company go down the drain.

    I have been working at Palm Coast Data full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance and the ability, where possible, to work from home. Most of the jobs are very easy so if you don't mind not being challenged, this place is for you.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement and the company has not handled change well. The change from print to digital has been very slow, not keeping up with demand. Too many clients are leaving for companies that have better web offerings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outsource, outsource, outsource. The web order processing is not working with the current staff and you have tried too long to get the right staff with no luck. You need to look elsewhere.

    I have been working at Palm Coast Data full-time

    Pros

    I cannot think of 1 specific positive about this company. It was poorly managed, lead by junior programmers.

    Cons

    Lead by junior programmers with big egos who thought they knew everything. They had us create unit test documents for QA, only for QA to tell us they used their own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    shut the doors. stop the bleeding.

    I have been working at Palm Coast Data full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    They have a good severance package.

    Cons

    In 10 years, I've never received a raise equivalent to the cost of living increase for that year. Bosses are put in place and supported to be bossy rather than supervisoral.

    I worked at Palm Coast Data full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers (not management) are pleasant and are good at what they do. Friendly but clickish.

    Cons

    Upper management has got to be killing this company. Looks like nothing has improved since 2010!? Lower management doesnt seem to have a clue on whats going on. They are running 6 different systems which no-one seems to know how to train the new person on. Some employees have no real world experience and have no clue how to explain what they do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your workers - they are the ones keeping this company alive...I personally think they are trying to lose money/customers for some odd reason. I've never seen so many things not happen with the group of employees there.
