    Pros

    So much experience, talent and drive all under one roof, as well as a feeling of loyalty to the company.

    This is a growing company where one must stay open minded to new ideas and be flexible to new ways to do things.

    Continue to be open and encouraging and supportive to your employees as you always have been and they will remain loyal.

    I have been working at Philadelphia Sign full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Steady work. If you are at work every day the liklihood of anything happenning to you is minimal. They really don't make anyone accountable for their actions, so if you're not so good at what you do, you can work their forever

    Cons

    Family runs the place, very old school ideas, no training, no steady increases (but this is getting better), CEo out of touch with the people. Huge swings in business. If you are family or one of the favored few, your life is great. The rest of us don't get bonsues based on anything but a whim from the owner. Very old school. If you are a favorite, you can get away with just about anything. Craziest place I've ever worked. No chance for promotion unless you threaten to leave, no training, no difference with work once your salary

    Advice to Management

    Enter the 21st century. It's changing a lot, and a lot of us would like to help make the Company a better and more profitlable place. INclude us in the process

    Pros

    Great Environment/People
    Above Average Benefits
    Always looking for ways to grow and improve current processes
    Majority of employees have been there for 10+ years with the industries leading knowledge and experience.

    Cons

    This industry requires people who can work at a very fast pace and provide quality work in that short amount of time. Everything is based around meeting deadlines and customers expectations. If you are not organized and do not work well under pressure this may not be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    It is not possible to please all employees but you are as close as a company could be. The extra time and effort management puts into employees and the business really shows!


  6. "Small but comfortable."

    I have been working at Philadelphia Sign full-time

    Pros

    At Philadelphia Sign Co. there is a very friendly working environment with easy going employees. Small office but with an open working space.

    Cons

    Some employees do seem to have some communication issues regarding how to properly communicate an idea across to other workers, without having to further explain what is to be done. But with a little extra communication the idea can come across with time.

    Really good people who care about the right things. The new COO is doing a great job. They are listening to us to make the place even better

    Cons

    Pros

    Great people and they care about the average "joe". Hard work but good pay compared to other companies. Always a balancing act that works well for the employee and client.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons to write home about. I feel the company is always trying to move jobs around to meet the workload. It works!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for keeping the workforce during the slow periods. That doesn't go unnoticed.

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

    Pros

    Co workers are very helpful, team oriented shop, if you worked hard you were happy there, jobs were made clear and detailed.

    Cons

    sometimes they take more work then they can get done on a predetermined timeline, need to handle some employees with out favoritism, some leadership abused their leadership skills

    Advice to Management

    listen to both sides of story and do not be judgmental
