    Pros

    The culture is relaxed and the people there are great. They become like a family. You get to work on a great product which is Vision BeanStore. Everyone is on the same team trying to achieve the same goal and everyone is always willing to lend a helping hand to help you succeed. It's a great company going in a very positive direction and management has help facilitate that. Management is always willing to listen and hear suggestions. I would highly recommend PCMS.

    Cons

    There is a ton of existing business and more coming in (which is a good thing). Nothing bad to say!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. They listen and have implemented sweeping changes for the better. Training programs (PCMS University), instituted career advancement opportunities, established middle management to help increase resources, and are reshaping our processes. Plus, they have added some awesome benefits and didn't pass on the increased cost of benefits to the employees. Management really cares and I think it is reflected in a the happy work environment.

    Pros

    The recent reorganization is making for a better employee environment. Great people, flexible work times, improved benefits, bonus structure and vacation time. Policies to retain employees mean you have lots of people with deep experience in their product knowledge and generally make this a good place to work.

    Cons

    Salaries lag a bit, which makes hiring slow and fails to retain people who are just looking at the bottom line dollar figure. Some of the expectations for employees haven't been nailed down yet by the new management team, so it can still be difficult to get recognized for contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring, bump salaries a bit to find good talent to make sure we have the right skills and bandwidth to keep up with the work coming in.

    Pros

    Good location, office hours are o.k., some of the people in the organization are truly talented and accomplished professionals.

    Cons

    Unethical, personnel has no experience in dealing with seasoned professionals, management in both divisions have no clue how to run a profitable business in todays software engineering and IT consulting arena. They have consistently ran their business in the red for over three years and there is no end in sight. Very poorly run organization that has no clear mission or vision to be a long term profitable player in this market.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to treat your employees and clients with dignity and respect. You have to invest in your resources to keep up in the latest engineering technologies to keep your existing clients current and compete with the other firms that provide solid engineering solutions.

    Pros

    People are awesome. Team members are like family. Caring, good people. Salaries are decent.

    Cons

    The management culture is like a cancer. It will eat you alive. You can give your heart and soul to the place, but management does not care. They say they do, but they do not. Benefits stink! Beware!

    Advice to Management

    The "crap" is rolling down hill. The top management needs to change. HR is absolutely clueless and untrustworthy.

    Pros

    Great talent and passionate about their work.

    Cons

    Management is out of touch with their employees. Bonus structure seems to change quarterly. Long hours, not always billable and bonuses are based on utilization. You will have to work 60 hours a week to hit your bonus target for the quarter. Pay could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Read the cons and fix what needs to be fixed.

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good for the area. The culture and people tend to be laid back. Releases are well planned and managed, so there isn't a death-march to the end of each one.

    Cons

    You won't be writing cutting-edge software here and you'll be enjoying a loud cube-farm as you do it. Some of the development tools used are ancient.

    Pros

    PCMS hires some of the best people in the industry. The Work environment is very friendly and , collaborative. Your team becomes like a family that you would do anything for. PCMS has national recognition and is privately owned so it has been able to survive and thrive during the economic downturn.

    Cons

    Management has no foresight and employs a reactive, instead of a proactive mentality. Problems are ignored until they become debilitating. There is always an irate customer that needs to appeased in fear of losing business. Deadlines are missed on one project because resources were stolen to meet the deadlines of another project. Clients are routinely over promised functionality by sales and high level management, and then staff are worked long hours to try to come close to what was promised.

    Advice to Management

    Your best asset is your people but because you won't treat them like that they are leaving in droves. Priceless knowledge has already walked out the door because you fail to change the culture. Everyone knows the issues; please stop pretending like there are no issues to try and save face. Admit when you're wrong, and go to bat for your people more often. People need to know that their work is being appreciated, and that they matter. People need to be treated like they have value, and not just like they are numbers on a resource board. Stop over promising and under achieving. Unless things change, the people who have made PCMS one of the best retail vendors are going to be making other companies the best in their respective industries.
