    Good location, good coffee and water.

    Everything is about politics. There is no way to give feedback. HR don't care about improving processes and management doesn't care about giving some people too much work to push them to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Care about what others have to suggest.

  9. "Decent place to work but inconsistent between teams"

    I have been working at Publishers Clearing House full-time

    Pros

    Overall the people are nice and it's a decent place to work, decently relaxed and chill- work life balance is good.

    Cons

    Overall it's pretty chill but inconsistent between different teams. Some are easier than others to work for, as anywhere I'm sure. But some teams do very little work and contribute very little, while others work hard with all the pressure being put on them and very little thanks.
