    I have been working at PrintingForLess.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Being surrounded by bright and hardworking teammates. I have worked at a fortune 100 company and other medium size companies, and can honestly say I have learned more at PFL in 1 year then the last few combined. People at PFL are honest, down to earth, and committed to helping create new levels of success.
    - Exciting new SaaS business; opportunity to grow a new niche
    - Being able to implement change
    - Beautiful views! Love that the company has an exciting start-up feel, and is in Montana!

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    The Martech side of the business is growing quick! Continue to be forward thinking in how we can rise to the challenge and scale. Keep developing your employees and creating new job opportunities for them within the company.

    Pros

    The mountains next to the building are pretty.

    Cons

    This place sucks. No one actually knows what they are doing but everyone has a lot of input. They will put you on a time clock and micro manage you until you want to explode. They have extremely high standards and extremely high turnover. Really think about it before you decide to work here. The pay seems a little higher than average but the benefits suck so it's a wash. I'm also pretty sure management spies on you, reads your every email and tries to motivate you by telling you that you suck on a daily basis. With the amount of people interviewing you would think it's a tourist destination. Constant turnover. There is also no break room and no place to go and dogs under your bathroom stall while you are trying to pee.

    Advice to Management

    Try to do something to make people happy. If there is a problem with everyone, the problem is you. You hire good people but you can't keep them because your business model is not good. If HR is your most important department, then something is wrong. Value your people. They are the best thing about your overpriced and underwhelming business.

    Thrown into the deep end pretty quickly, which is a good thing, but the first few weeks can be difficult.

    I worked at PrintingForLess.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you're willing to put in the work - PFL has an amazing amount growth opportunities available to its employees. No matter what position you start in, you can move ahead into new roles and departments - if you have the right attitude, and show real success at your job.

    PFL does a fantastic job of hiring smart, hardworking, fun employees. I would consider the quality of the people you work with, and the culture around the office to be the greatest "perk" to working in the company. It just makes such a difference in how you feel when you go to work each day - and in your personal desire to do your best at your job. People actually do have fun here at work most days; and building life-long friendships in the workplace is common.

    Dogs at work, beer on Fridays, and mountain views from your desk. Zero cubicles.

    Since leaving the company and moving out of state, I can honestly say PFL remains the most positive, engaging, collaborative and truly fun work place I've ever been a part of.

    Cons

    When intense challenges face the company and upper management, everybody feels the strain. You'll need to learn to roll with the punches at PFL, and not be scared away by a particularly tough week or even month. Stick around for the long haul, and the company will serve your career at least as much as you served it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep giving performance bonuses - it actually does help motivate employees!

    Pros

    Great work environment that is set up to help you get your work done well. Certain departments are running smoothly and are keeping the company afloat.
    Pay is good for Livingston.

    Cons

    Turnover is high. Especially in the new SaaS portion of the business.
    Senior management is stuck in their ways.
    All new development is hindered by having a new software company duct taped and tied on top of the established print departments.
    Every team uses different methods and software to track progress
    Meetings about everything. A lot of wasted time.
    Values that made PFL a great place to work are becoming a thing of the past.

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity, GREAT people, interesting challenges throughout the day, decent wage for Livingston, MT.

    Cons

    Some personality challenges on the management team, particularly in senior management, make working closely with many of the managers unpleasant, discouraging, and disillusioning. Also, promises made by some managers are rarely kept so decisions about your future cannot necessarily be relied upon.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in extensive leadership training for everyone in management. Find ways to make people feel appreciated and valued.

    Pros

    You find the people you really love to work with and they are awesome. The dogs in the office is very cheerful.

    Cons

    Upper management is horrible, stuck in their ways, claim they are good communicators and leaders but are far from it. Company claims there is accountability....NO accountability. Everyone points fingers, especially upper management. Everything is in constant chaos. Bad pay and bad benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Need new managers with actual experience in the area they are leading.

    Decent job with average to slightly above average pay. Lots of opportunity to learn and develop new skills.

    Cons

    Culture is some what cultish ie. drink the juice. Be prepared to be micro managed like never before. Metrics, metrics and more metrics. Very competitive with lots of "yes men" and bus tossers.
