    No opinion of CEO

    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 have been working at PPC full-time

    Pros

    95% of the employees are great people and I consider friends.

    Cons

    The executive team is untrustworthy. You may think you are adding value to the organization and the executive team will tell you, you are safe from lay offs. Then out of nowhere they will lay you off.

    Employees are in shock as to how the executive team still has their jobs. They have lost contracts because of poor performance, they haven't won any new business in years.

    Advice to Management

    Self reflection!
    Keep the employees that add value and cut the ones that have cost the organization money. Common sense!

    I worked at PPC full-time

    Pros

    I worked at PPC for many years. In the first part of my employment the company had a very employee friendly culture and had a more egalitarian approach to sharing the companies success as most good employees were rewarded with bonuses. Things were far from perfect but I appreciated the flexibility the company offered. The egalitarian culture changed with time but it was still a good place to work until the sale to AEA in 2008.

    Cons

    When the company was sold to AEA it placed great cash demands on PPC which limited the reward given to employees and created significant issues with paying the company's obligations. The culture of the company changed, good people left, and the company experienced significant fiscal hardship. The company experienced another sale in 2013 and the problems have gotten worse. Along with the fiscal problems and layoffs, the company appears to be blind to the massive incompetence it has in its senior management. This company is dying a slow death.

    Advice to Management

    Either take a hard look and shake up the senior management or just cash in your chips
