    Pros

    I always tell people that PMC functions like a cool startup, but in all the best ways: there's a family feeling here despite being such a large company, and all of the employees are encouraged to get to know each other, no matter what brand you're with. The leaders here have always encouraged me to try out new ideas (without penalizing me if things go south) and I've felt supported in asking for more opportunities and responsibilities as I grew in my career. Penske was also one of the few media companies that actually HIRED more people during the pandemic (rather than laying off staff), which was an encouraging sign for all of us here.

    Cons

    We've moved in a solid direction in terms of diversity but I encourage management to continue making diverse hires so we can truly represent our readers and followers

    Pros

    Fast moving, entrepreneurial culture. Very strong talent overall. Rapidly growing media company vs the old guard.

    Cons

    Some growing pains means processes not always in place. PTO benefits very light for how hard everyone works.

    Smart and Exciting Company

    Pros

    The people at PMC are what make it special. In my role I interfaced with different people from around the company each day and so I got a good idea of the people at the brands and also corporate. It's a company where the most senior people treat you with respect no matter what role your in and there's a feeling like everyone's work matters. It was also exciteing to be part of a company that is growing all the time. We would add new businesses but also HR would come out with new perks and opportunities. You could tell they were always putting effort into our benefits and also bringing in great speakers on different topics during the year. During Covid the company was amazing with zero layoffs no matter your job and regular communications really helped.

    Cons

    It's a busy company and not everyone enjoys that kind of pace. It's a growing company some perks were not offered that people wanted but I do feel like management and HR listened to those requests.
