      Run Fast

      Pros

      The office is really nice. Free soda. The pay is good if you land a good position. But the anxiety that comes along with any role is not worth it. Before accepting an offer, ask why the position is open. It's likely because there has been many, many people who have quit and no one is willing to put up with PCH and their backwards way of working.

      Cons

      I don't have enough time to list every single con because it's that bad. I was warned about the toxic culture before accepting my offer by a previous employee but I wanted to give PCH the benefit of the doubt — but wow. It's bad. Like, really bad. No one knows what's going on and everyone talks crap. I was told on my interview that the different departments are "collaborative" so I'd need to be willing and able to work well with different teams. What they meant is that no task can be completed... ever. Because every task has to be run through 5 different teams who are all being told different things from their different team leaders. So you'll spend your day chasing down people from other departments to try to complete on task. It's INSANITY. It's crazy, because they have so much money that they don't realize they are paying people to just sit around and complain about how ridiculous the work life is there. They also function like they're still in 1995. It's 2021, PCH. Wake up.

      Absolutely Miserable

      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      No one really cares all that much, and priorities are constantly shifting every time senior management sees something shiny, so if you want to be able to fly under the radar and coast, this could work for you.

      Cons

      80% of the workforce hate the job and are showing up to take care of their single function position and then head home at the end of the day. Senior management has been in place since the early 80s, which is about the same time they stopped learning anything new. The top level of the company is made up of sycophants and self promoters who know how to manipulate the constantly-shifting focus of the CEO. The core business of the company is getting the elderly and uneducated to buy overpriced merchandise that will be shipped to them eventually. Doing the work is soul-sucking. HR is not on your side. Not even close. Interns are STRONGLY encouraged to leave positive reviews on here after their tenure is over. Coffee is terrible

      Great Company

      Pros

      If you are looking to work with a great bunch of people who value you, then this is the place for you. It is not often that a company takes the time to notice when hard work out in. PCH did. It was nice to hear complements from upper management on jobs down well.

      Cons

      There were no cons. Nothing negative

      Pros

      The people you're going to work with are mostly great.

      Cons

      They don't want any new designs or any change, it feels a little clique-y at times, and you will likely be frustrated weekly.
