    I worked at Product Development Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun events and family-friendly hours overall. Kind of old-school compared to startup

    Cons

    Can be blamed for areas outside your area of responsibility. For example, if the code is having blocking issues, which happens at every company, then blame DBA even though the code that is doing blocking was not written by DBA.

    Company is downsizing.

    Advice to Management

    Morale was great overall

    I worked at Product Development Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good coworkers. Relaxed work environment

    Cons

    Terrible benefits, Most expensive health insurance I have ever had, Little to no PTO, No working remote allowed

    Advice to Management

    The company deals in phone books which is a dying industry. They are only worried about saving money. There is little to no work available for the main office in Westminster. The managers have no motivation since the company is shrinking. Employee moral is at an all time low. They have lost a lot of good employees due to lack of work and low pay. The IT management is incompetent at worst and clueless at best. Look elsewhere for employment if possible. This company won't be in business too much longer. They have no plan to move into anything other than phone books. They want to be the last player in the industry, which is dying more and more each day. So there is no hope for this company in the future.

  3. "Family owned company"

    Great job if you don't mind working by yourself with little supervision, Management is done from another state and you rarely see your managers.

    Cons

    Long time away from family. great for a single person but sucks if you are married with kids.

    I have been working at Product Development Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The work is interesting and the people are good to work with mostly. Lots of employees have been with the company for a long time which makes for a relaxed but productive environment.

    Cons

    The industry (telephone book delivery) is contracting and there isn't a clear vision for what the company will do in the long term future; So there is often a sense that the company needs to be careful of its finances although upper management continues to assert that the company is financially strong. There is a sense from mid-upper management of over-competition for resources that seems unnecessary if only the company would grow in other directions, but when that is attempted, the infighting among management becomes a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    There is a good and talented group of people working at PDC and a potential for great success if leadership will take the steps and make the changes to transform into other realms of business.
    At this time, Peter Boulais is no longer president at PDC.
