    I have been working at Publishers Clearing House full-time

    Pros

    PCH offers a lot of great benefits. Good amount of time off to allow for a work life balance, 401k and health benefits as well as a lot of internal outings/events that are beneficial and in my opinion help to prevent employees from burning out as well as some internal training on technical skills. The people are great and the digital presence has become to pick up which is promising.

    After leaving and coming back, much of these benefits became front and center when I realized that a lot of other places don't offer certain opportunities that PCH does.

    Some people may think that there's no room for growth but there is, just takes a little to see the opportunity. Management is fairly open to hearing about your opinions and trying to provide learning opportunities to employees that will help benefit the employee in the long run. Things like certifications, analytics and technology training are also among some of added benefits that are great.

    Cons

    Communication and transparency between departments could be better but not many cons other than that.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to offer challenges that will help advancement for employees.
