    Pros

    Awesome co-workers. Relaxing environment. Steady work. Great places to be placed. ie 3M

    Cons

    It's a data game. Not necessarily about what you bring to the table. Bachelor's degrees over skills and ability at times. Background checks should be run BEFORE someone obviously qualified is offered a position. We look ridiculous when there's no excuse other than a piece of paper. I may be too nice and competent for this position and/or company.

    Pros

    Laid back, fun work environment

    Cons

    When I get put on the late shift I often miss things I have planned for that night. Due to the paperwork

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

    Pros

    Built a great team that made a huge difference in both the bottom line and creating jobs for more than 40 new people. Developed new business segments and was always challenged.

    Cons

    Corporate did not care enough and made poor decisions without asking advice from those that understood the consequences of not valuing all employees

    Advice to Management

    Utilize all staff members to their fullest or they will find somebody else who will. Keeping a team together and maximizing everyone’s strengths will get the business through those plateau years.

    I worked at Pace Analytical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you like to be bullied look no further or to be sexually harassed you have found your place of employment. If you also enjoy HR lying then why look any where else for a great opportunity.

    Cons

    They only care about expierence and do not listen to the newer employees who provide insight about how things are being ran. You could tell the manager about something an employee who has been working there for awhile but they will never take your word for it. The workload is not evenly spread out within departments you have some people who do literally nothing there and get promoted because they have been there for awhile.

    Advice to Management

    Did not listen to me while I was there why keep giving more info.

    There are several great people that work well as a team in the PM office.

    Cons

    Lack of accountability when things are in error.

    Advice to Management

    Work on training people a little better. Hire more people to handle the workloads that are already in place. You cant expect the world of a good employee without them burning out.
