Lives up to the mission statement "People, Customers, Trust"

Plant Accountant (Former Employee)

I worked at PCA full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGreat corporate culture, treat employees as people, not numbers, from plant level to upper management. Opportunites for growth and continuing education. Great salaries and benefits, as to be expected from a Fortune 500 company. Also reward dedicated employees with generous annual bonuses.

ConsOccasionly, some management can seem stuffy to someone not used to a Fortune 500 company environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing! You have a true focus on your employees, which is rare to find in today's corporate america.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
