Unenlightened

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Malvern, PA (US)

ProsThey will give unproven talent a chance. They are relatively hands-off so you have the opportunity to develop your skills and projects (opportunity but not necessarily support). There are opportunities to interact with senior management. Promotions are possible (but greater responsibility is not necessarily rewarded.)

ConsPBP is very set in its ways. Original thinking is typically punished until the new employee learns to fit the mold. The company markets very aggressively, leading to complaints such as you can find with an easy Google search. Most employees have given up trying to make sense of management decisions and just follow orders. Many simple tasks become power struggles due to the absence of basic policies and procedures. There is almost no funding for ongoing skills development, especially if it might benefit another employer.

Advice to Senior ManagementSuper-aggressive marketing models are becoming self-defeating. You should reward your employees for finding ways to bring in revenue while treating customers with respect. Many employees bring you their passion and dedication -- despite low salaries -- they deserve better, both in compensation and in their opportunities to thrive.
