I have been working at PCA full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

PCA is solid financially and they seem to care at the corporate level, I think anyway.

Cons

The management office and plant treat sales people like they are not part of the team. No help from mangement and the plants compete against each other. No team work.

Advice to Management

Be honest take time to talk to your people. I believed in PCA only to find it wasn't anything like they told me it was. I think corporate should be more involved at the plant level. They do an employee survey every year, I wouldn never put down what I really think, they say it's confidential but, if you look at the questions, they can figure out who is who.

    Pros

    Great People, treated well, sense of team, golden rule enviroment

    Cons

    Sells to 5% of the market(I was told when hired I coud sell anyone anywhere), narrow window to sell, do not sell brown box truckload street business anymore, need complex sales to be successful. Commission rate lowest in industry because it is based on margin and volume, you can forget about the margin side of it. PCA pricing system is set up for the house. They keep individual sales awards a secret for some unexplained reason.

    Advice to Management

    Please review your commission structure. The field sales team is being adversely effected, while the company continues to be the most profitable in the industry,
