    No opportunity to move up and get pay raises. Received Just over a dollar in living expense and raises over a 7-8 year period. Need additional help. Used only 2 guys to do all working responsibilities.

    Pros

    If you are extremely good at your work and aggressive, you have everything. Good for fresh grads.

    Cons

    Always in firefighting mode. No methodology is really followed. Glib talkers do often rise in this company. For quite some time, senior leadership has just used this company as a platform to jump somewhere else. This wasn't the case when it was privately owned by the original founders.

    Advice to Management

    Stay in touch with grassroot teams

    I have been working at PPC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pros would be the flexibility and hours. The coworkers are great as well. The employees are the ones who actually roll up their sleeves to get the work done while management is the only ones that take credit for it.

    Cons

    CEO, VP, and HR do not value the work of their employees. Huge turnover ratio due to upper management. The company has changed completely when the former CEO and CFO left the company. I have never been with a company with so much turnover. There is no job security or stability here.

    Advice to Management

    In my opinion, upper management to include the CEO needs to resign. Management needs to value their employees to keep them motivated and enthused to work at PPC. Bring back Harry Thornsvard!
