I have been working at Pace Communications full-time (More than 8 years)
I landed the best job out of college with Pace. I had the opportunity to travel and work directly with city officials and business leaders at the VP and above level across the country. The experience and business connections I gained in those first years as a professional is invaluable. I left Pace after several years for a different opportunity but have recently rejoined the Pace team in a new and challenging role for myself. I made the leap to change career paths because I trusted the leadership at Pace and the commitment i've seen them make in individuals willing to challenge themselves and grow. I love the people at Pace as cliche as that sounds. I also love the flexibility I have as a working mom to both work hard but be there for my kids for special events at school or when i'm needed.
I don't view this as a downside necessarily but maybe a cautionary to those looking to join the company. No puns intended but we keep a swift pace at Pace. Our leadership is invested in our growth as a company both financially and as an innovator in the industry. We work hard but I think we have fun doing it together and with our clients.
Advice to Management
- Continue to invest in personal and professional development
- Continue to create opportunities for socialization and collaboration across different teams and individuals (and offices)
- Continue to look for opportunities to promote from within
- Continue to make investments in office amenities
I applied online. I interviewed at Pace Communications.
I applied on LinkedIn and was contacted pretty quickly. Then the HR person was a complete space cadet and forgot to follow up. There was clearly miscommunication between the interviewer and the HR department. Once I got past dealing with the incompetencies of HR, the entire rest of the process was smooth and enjoyable. It was completely over the phone.
