    I worked at PPC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The employees work very closely together, developing friendships outside of the organization. A lot opportunity for growth

    Cons

    A lot of turnover since the previous CEO and CFO left mid/late 2014 and the culture pretty much went downhill after that.

    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!

    I worked at PPC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some good people still work there who are fighting to keep the company and contracts alive. Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    The management is faltering under its own weight and staggering level of incompetence. Contracts are drying up faster than people are leaving the company (which is an alarming rate). The management to worker ratio has been way off balance for a long time. They never offered competitive wages for entry level workers and survived on desperate college graduates to get their work done to a sub-par standard.

    I worked at PPC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, and mostly surrounded by people who are engaged in their work. Very knowledgeable staff who will help you learn anything you're ambitious towards.

    Cons

    Multiple company sales and restructuring took a toll on the friendly, small-business feel of the company. Loss of several big contracts forced the restructuring of some of the business groups.
