    I have been working at Professional Compounding Centers of America (more than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful culture and atmosphere of understanding and happiness
    Great work life balance
    Numerous perks the company shells out for employees, like PCCA jackets, mugs, and great benefits
    Great CEO and president
    Great people (non senior management)
    Rewarding to work with a job that helps people daily

    Cons

    Very compartmentalized by department.
    Very top-down work oriented, do your work because someone of higher rank wants it done, know your rank.
    You move up by popularity vote
    Tends to focus more on personalities vs job performance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to plan for a future that has technology at its core
    Develop your internal staff more, not just high level workers
    Have a promotion route for positions

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    The people and higher ups are a pleasure to work with. Opportunities to become involved in culture committees and events during business hours, creating a sense of family.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay, the slowest hiring process I have ever witnessed. Extremely slow hiring process. Job titles could use some improvement.

    I have been working at Professional Compounding Centers of America full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Great job security
    - Being a part of a company that is actually doing good for society by providing pharmaceutical alternatives through compounding ingredients.
    -Very friendly atmosphere
    -Great work/personal life balance - I never take my work home with me.

    Cons

    -Limited advancement opportunities, especially if you are in any of the following departments: Quality Assurance, Quality Control, Production Planning, Operations as a whole
    -Salary compensation for aforementioned departments is in the bottom 5% of comparable jobs in Texas
    -Company is not willing to invest in long-term, quality employees and is instead content with offering low salaries, which result in high turnover rates in the aforementioned departments.
    - Disconnect between upper management and business-side departments and operations departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Reduce number of pack sizes for 90% of slower selling items to free up warehouse space and reduce inventory carrying costs.
    -Higher additional production personnel immediately
    -Salary raises across the board - you can't hire college graduates at $35k anymore.
    -Bridge the gap between the perceived reality "upstairs" and the actual reality "downstairs" aka operations.
    -Create more advancement opportunities. PCCA has a fantastic process in place to drive talent out of the company and retain staff members that are mediocre at best.
