    Pros

    Excellent compensation package with top-notch benefits. Great team-centered culture that feels like family.

    Cons

    Things change fairly often, so tough to keep track of processes and clients. Very heavy workload during holiday season.

    Advice to Management

    Keep asking for feedback.

    I worked at Pace Runners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There is no pros for this company. Horrible place to work. No regard for their employees.

    Cons

    This whole company is nothing but cons.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn’t care about their employees. Never took the time to visit the accounts. No communication. Low pay and NO opportunities for advancement. Very apparent that management is only trying to line their own pockets with no regard to the employees who actually do the work. Lies about incentive bonuses, weekend pay differential and weekly gift cards for performance. Complaints and concerns never addressed. This...

    I have been working at Pace Runners full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This company is passionate about their people, customers, and doing business the right way. Not every day is a walk in the park. However, everyday you come to work and go home from work you know you made a difference with a purpose.

    Cons

    Finding a proper balance between work life harmony can be challenging. Reason for that is this is a 24/7 business. Find your harmony and you'll be fine.

    Advice to Management

    Identify, challenge, and solve. Keep moving the company forward.

    I have been working at Pace Runners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The comradery is amazing. So many of us were looking for a way to leave Pelham. Daily we would send each other job posts that we thought the other may be a great fit for. Our recruiters even redid our resumes to make sure we were highly visible to quality employers. We all helped each other land new jobs and were compensated handsomly. (In hindsight, maybe blocking job search engines would increase productivity) Other...

    Cons

    Going through an identity crisis.

    Advice to Management

    The immoral atrocities are too much to even begin to counsel. An entire team under a specific "director" (I put that in quotes because the number of unethical and fraudulant acts I've seen is quite evident that no quality direction is going on) has left in under 8 months. Yet, the employees are the "bad apples". These employers are snatching up these bad apples faster than you can handle (thanks in part to our amazing...

    Pros

    Great food trucks, great people

    Cons

    Horrible Executive Leaders - They are both famous for creating divisive and hostile work environments. The turnover under their leadership is absurd. Do your research. Look up current/ former employees on LinkedIn and ask their opinion before settling here. Birmingham is growing and employers that actually care about their employees are available. Check there first.

    Advice to Management

    It's really disappointing that a company that used to stand for something great has been reduced to filth because people in leadership don't care about anything but fulfilling their selfish agenda. Maybe you'll get it together before it is too late. Good luck.

    Pros

    Biweekly pay check. Bonuses, when they actually pay them out.

    Cons

    Favorites-some employees are compensated VERY WELL because management likes them. Management/ Directors are very disrespectful to employees. Broken promises. Horrible PTO policy.

    I worked at Pace Runners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people I was able to network with outside of senior management were great.

    Cons

    There is no organization, culture and no plan. Senior management is disconnected and clueless to what the real problems are. This probably why that are losing business in some of the larger markets. Although they offer benefits and bonuses you have to fight to make sure you are getting what is promised to you and even then its hard. You can spend a decade there and they will not even celebrate your loyalty. The turn over...

    Advice to Management

    Wake up . Appreciate your employees they work hard and long for you. Once you kill the moral its hard to get it back. People work for people and when your employees start to work only for each other you see major turnover. Good luck on all the up coming job postings.

    I worked at Pace Runners

    Pros

    There is nothing positive about working here

    Cons

    CFO is a complete jerk. He talks to people with no respect. And he feels like what he says goes. You never know what kind of mood he is going to be in. It can be good or bad. And if it’s bad everyone in the office will know. He is sneaky, rude, and highly unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Fire your whole team and start from scratch
