    I love working for PSCO. The industry is a nice change of pace and the company is very capable.

    I have been working at Philadelphia Sign full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My children had a blast at bring you child to work day last year. This is such a fun/intersting place an you can learn so much about the industry and how to succeed at life in general. I have learned so many skills that college did not. The management is very interactive with the employees. I have learned so much since I have started working here. Everyone was so helpful and informative. I can not remember the last time I have seen coworkers interact like this. Everyone succeeds together.

    Cons

    The industry is based on timelines. So you need to have good organizational skills to stay on top of your game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Whatever you are doing is working! Keep it up.

    I worked at Philadelphia Sign

    Pros

    Could spend your life working for them, very unlikely to fire or lay you off if you are office personnel.

    Cons

    Good luck ever seeing a raise. Many employees have gone years without ever seeing a dime extra for their loyalty. Salary stays the same but insurance always goes up. It's family owned so your chance of advancement in the company is zero. Business casual attire for a sign company? Rules apply to some but not others. Absolutely no comaraderie. I agree with a previous poster. NEPOTISM.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some cash on your employees instead of yourselves.

    Pros

    The pay is above average for our industry and it's a relaxed climate. Don't get me wrong, you are still required to get your work done but they are flexible with working around your life's schedules. Our clients love us because our service and quality of products are second to none. I've had several offers from other companies and there is no comparison. PSCO is an old family company for a reason. I know they're older than 100 years and that says a lot.

    Cons

    If I had anything to say as a con it would be asking my fellow employees to please invoice sooner. There isn't a system in place to be sure we all invoice on time. This hurts all employees as cash flow is important. I don't know why PSCO accepts month after month going by at a time without sending an invoice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please set up a system where invoicing is more consistent. This would be my one and only advice. If you're reading this and you're saying to yourself that's me they're talking about, then please help fix the problem.

    I have been working at Philadelphia Sign full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, plenty of vacation/personal time, 401K, and casual office environment. If you come to work and do your job its pretty safe to say your job is secure even when the company workload slows down. The work itself is not always the most exciting, but the day goes by quickly, very personable coworkers, and the office turnover is very slow because employees rarely leave. Management must be doing something right....

    Cons

    I'm sure the problems I experience here are the same at many other companies.

    Work is not consistent throughout the year. Company morale could always be better.

    Pros

    Steady work as long as banks keep buying each other. Bank sign conversions are the company's bread and butter. Liberal time off policy. Some good benefits. 401K with match and vesting. Products and signs are all manufactured on site in Palmyra, NJ. which eases project management workflow. Close to Philadelphia and major bridges.

    Cons

    Nose to the grindstone work culture. Can get monotonous. Coworkers narc on each other to management for dress code infractions and various minutia, leads to undo stress. Big Brother / Orwellian style vibe. No yearly raises at all and minuscule bonuses. No individual or creative thoughts are heard. No yearly employee evaluations, so no upward or lateral advancement opportunities exist. Majority of employees in same position after 15 years of work. Company is run by three families who are entrenched at the top. No place to go or move up to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up a little, it's not 1955. Actually listen to what employees have to say. Show a real interest in their ideas and concerns and act on it. Cut down on the creepy surveillance. Employees are more productive when they are relaxed and can trust who it is that they work for.
