    I have been working at Project Consulting Services full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I have been an employee of PCS for 20 years. Great company to work for as you never feel like you are only working for them, but working with the company. The autonomy to be creative in your approach to problem solving, the ability to be heard regarding issues and concerns really makes you feel like you are part of a team. A team that is willing to jump into a problem together and solve that problem. You could... never tell by behavior and attitude who are the executives and directors of the company as they behave and perform side by side with any and all employees within a project scope or outside of the office. In other words there is a real family atmosphere here and that particular attention is paid to the mood and attitude of employees and there is a genuine concern for the well being of all employees. Challenging projects, success is rewarded, even in slow business periods the company has maintained its employee base without major layoffs. A very comforting factor for many here at PCS. I have had many opportunities to move on from PCS, but none of those opportunities could match the culture of this company.

    Cons

    Cell phones are a tool required in this day and age, yet only a handful of employees have their cell phone paid for by the company, but yet the use of cell phones in integral to performing our jobs. But this is minor compared to all the pluses.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the family atmosphere, continue to encourage innovation and ideas. Consider some type of organizational structure in which younger employees see a potential career path and will not be quick to jump ship.

    I have been working at Project Consulting Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Comfortable work environment, great office spaces, and mostly friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    No career growth and employees often get away with unprofessional behavior. There is no culture of accountability. Most talented and hard working will carry deadweight, then eventually leave company.

    Advice to Management

    Incentivize your top talent by first recognizing who they are.

    Pros

    A great culture of autonomy, family, loyalty, flexibility, stability and productivity. By no means corporate America but still has large, challenging and significant projects employees can help execute. The character of the company and leadership makes it easy to feel good about working here, and the fact that turnover is very low speaks to how satisfied people in general. PCS is by no means perfect, but in the... real world where nothing is perfect, it separates itself from most other companies.

    Cons

    A long-run, slow and steady growth philosophy to smooth out the peaks and valleys in the Energy business can feel like growth is slow during an Energy boom, but as soon as you experience your first Energy industry bust while at PCS, you no longer worry about changing the slow and steady growth strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the foundation and keep pursuing great people and meaningful work.

    I have been working at Project Consulting Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great employees within the company. Team building within company is great. Awesome morale and encouragement. Laid back working conditions. Opportunities to work on leading edge projects and technology. CEO makes sure to plan gatherings throughout the year for employees and throws a wonderful Christmas party. Handled the fall of the oil and gas industry in 2015-2016 well in comparison.

    Cons

    Some employees get "outcast" by others if not in their "group". Has a expense reimbursement program, but no company cell credit cards which could put the employee out by thousands on some months if travelling often.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the small company feel and continue to challenge and reward employees.
