    Odd place to work...

    Pros

    Employee events (some), good food at events, having the name Porsche on your resume. Full-time employees can lease a brand new Porsche of their choosing every six months for a discounted price.

    Cons

    There is no promoting here; at this company, you don't move up in the ranks. If there is an option position open, Porsche will hire outside the company. They take forever to fill positions, which is not a terrible thing, but it is when a GM position has been open for over half a year. The senior management at this company is a joke. If you are a contractor or an intern, don't hold your breath on getting hired. Porsche will promise you a job to keep you there, doing work for minimal pay, but will never hire you. You will not get the same perks as the full-time employees. You will, however, do the same amount of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within. Give raises. Show appreciation and communicate better with your employees.

    Pros

    An incredible company with incredible products. You can drive a Porsche as part of the company car program. A lean enterprise that is wildly profitable.

    Cons

    Unfortunately a victim of its own success. PCNA does not seem to value its employees, instead, it seems to feel that employees are a commodity. Completely unreasonable about work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fixing the corporate culture starts at the top and trickles down.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Small company so you can wear many hats. Good work life balance. Plus you get to work with a fun product! Nice discount for leasing cars.

    Cons

    Salary is not competitive and upward movement is pretty tough due to the size of the company. Can be political at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more opportunities to people by promoting cross functional moves. Increase pay and bonuses to retain the best employees.

    Pros

    Small so lots of opportunities to do various tasks, many hats to wear. A great employee lease program for cars.

    Cons

    Long hours, not a lot of vertical movement, but once you do the main internal jobs, you are valuable elsewhere.
