I could not have asked for a more solid internship experience: was able to work on & accomplish great things!

Marketing Intern (Former Employee)
Port Washington, NY

I worked at Publishers Clearing House as an intern for less than a year

ProsAmazing building and atmosphere to work in. Fun office environment, filled with friendly and outgoing people. Plus, it's a very well known company. The town its in is also a great place to work. Can't ask for better food options so close to an office.

ConsThe office (overall) and departments are not really equipped with the latest and greatest technology (including software). Also, the company doesn't really employ the most state of the art practices within each department.

Advice to Senior ManagementSeek out more youth with techy\comp sci experience and technology/system processes innovation opportunities.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great atmosphere, little room for grow

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Port Washington, NY

I have been working at Publishers Clearing House full-time

ProsGreat family atmosphere and good benefits. Strong company, competitive salary.
Very talented people.

ConsThe company is hiring a lot of interns, down the road you'll find that one of those interns will be supervising your job.

You'll also find that some managers have outdated skills, therefore, they will hold their position forever and you will not have any room to grow.

Some managers play favorites, and those favorites are the ones who get all the promotions and cool projects, while you may be stuck doing the same things over and over again.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive people the chance to work on a variety of projects.

Great atmosphere, but bad management cancels it out

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Publishers Clearing House full-time for more than a year

Pros* Great benefits
* Wonderful people
* Excellent work/life balance
* Flexible hours

Cons* Minimal (if at all) upward mobility
* Management has lost the ability to think and act
* Meetings, meetings, and more meetings
* Misallocated resources
* Unwilling to take risks or adapt
* Unrealistic fiscal expectations

Advice to Senior ManagementYour core audience is dying. Literally. Pouring on more of then same emails/ads/tv promos is not going to magically garner in the younger crowd.

Allow people to champion ideas from below and pitch them to senior management. The financial outlook will be sunnier (and less fictional).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
