    Pros

    *Benefits are great
    *Some great employees

    Cons

    *Ruthless business tactics
    *Undesireable people in management positions
    --People of equal, greater, as well as lessor levels can't stand a couple of these bad managers
    --Bad managers speak bad of their superiors where anyone can hear them
    --Absolutely neither display the ability for empathy/compassion nor ethics
    --Guilty of discrimination but it's difficult to prove in court of law
    --Customers have complained about these same managers
    --Management is dishonest about their own errors and failures and will ruthlessly blame innocent people.
    --heard management refer to employees as stupid, slow, and other rude comments

    Advice to Management

    Be more like the people that make great things happen at this company and stop trying to pin blame on others. Be accountable for your own actions and don't destroy people for your own selfish purpose. Remember everyone works because they need to.

    I have been working at Professional Service Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and easy to schedule time off, most management is very knowledgeable on subject matter, other employees are hard working and dependable

    Cons

    Some managers are inexperienced at managing employees..., when there is no billable time there is no work and you don't get paid, lots of equipment is used and weathered to a degree that it should be replaced, but the company does not want to spend money on anything

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to when a department is not profitable and find the root cause instead of cutting hours and moving employees to other departments. Spend money to replace equipment and purchase necessary supplies.

    I worked at Professional Service Industries (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There really aren't many pros to this company. Parking in front of office. Located close off the highway. Dunkin Donuts is nearby.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance. Minimal holidays. Non competitive pay. Not great insurance. Hire arrogant and rude people. No career growth. Zero culture.

    I was sexually harassed by an employee who was let go and the re-hired! And then when I told HR I could not work with him I was forced to leave. And most recently they let a company veteran of 23 years go with ONLY 2 weeks severance. Despicable!

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. You treat employees terribly. No great perks. Joke of a company,
