Former Employee - Analyst in McLean, VA
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Pre-acquisition: Great work/life balance, employees were greatest asset, game room, positive attitude of peers, high importance and involvement with community service, enthusiastic and highly competent leadership.
Post-acquisition: None that I can think of.

Cons

Pre-acquisition: Imbalanced pay grades, no bonuses, room for growth was limited.
Post-acquisition: Incompetent senior management, work/life balance was way off, low employee morale, negative overall atmosphere, very poor communications from top down, emphasis on numbers instead of people.

Advice to Management

PLEASE go back to making your employees your greatest asset! Without them, the company is going to continue to go into a dangerous downward spiral. Turning PEOPLE and SERVICES into "differentiators" has not worked well with any other corporation, what makes you think it'll work here? LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES AND REWARD THEM FOR THE HARD WORK THEY PUT IN!!!!

    Advice to Management

    PPC has faced many issues in the past several months. The 100% turnover in the C-suite has really dug a hole for PPC's future success. The changes implemented will only hurt the company in terms of staff-level. Although it is a public company on the UK market, money cannot be the only driver for success. The senior management needs to recognize they will continue to lose revenue if they continue to neglect the staff.

    PPC is not winning any new work. Senior management's approach to "differentiators" will only hurt in the long run, as they cannot change PPC's way of doing business quick enough to save the company.

    The CEO could care less about the employees. The two all-hands he has lead since he joined PPC in November were a joke. The first all hands he could not care less about the staff level employees, saying that they wouldn't be affected by any changes (wrong) and said he could care less about the environmental side of the company (which happens to be the most stable area in the company). The second all hands was a hand holding session about feelings, to a group of well-educated adults (seriously, do you know who you're audience is?). If senior management plans to hold onto any more employees that help make the company successful, then they need to change their attitude, otherwise they will lose more than the high number of people that already left the company since the new CEO started.

    If senior management doesn't start caring about the employees and the image the company is portraying to its employees and clients, then they should lay off the rest of the company and see how successful they will be without the talented staff.

    Pros

    The benefits are still good

    Cons

    company is headed for a downward spiral after AEA take over and Mike Nigro's departure. A lot of good, hardworking people left the company under AEA management. There is no budget for training if anyone is expecting any training and have not seen bonuses for years by anyone. (may be except for the senior management)
