    I have been working at Publishing Concepts part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Being treated with dignity and respect. Given the opportunity to have flexibility in a variety of ways.

    Cons

    Monotonous work that is a lot of repetitive talking and then trying to persuade people to buy. It is continual with little to no break between calls. It wouldn't be considered an easy sales job - you work for what you get.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the servant leadership management style. It works.

    Pros

    Sir, did you know that the term "Fear of the Lord" is in the Bible 144 times? That is 12 x 12 which means perfect government. Fear of the Lord does not mean to be scared of Him, it means to be lined up with the heart of God. Mr. Clancy, God is not mad at you for your riches, but the problem with being rich is that people lose the heart of God. You stop being concerned with the things of His Kingdom. Since you have taken...

    Don't answer this post unless you ARE Drew Clancy. I'm not interested in hearing your canned response to a bad review. For that matter, no one else is either.

    Great temp. job only. Keep interviewing.... go elsewhere.

    Cons

    Count on leaving company with same base pay you started with. -Five years and no raise. No pay raises ever. No opportunities to advance in company. NOT TO MENTION IT'S A DYEING INDUSTRY. RUN. RUN. RUN.

    Advice to Management

    Owner Drew Clancy, STOP having a meeting with all staff groups every 6 months. It's a joke. We always want the same thing' year after. Pay raises. Direct Deposit. 401K Same over and over and the list goes on & on. And YOU say don't pressure sales to Veterans who {have health issues, Cancer, broke.} And then ALL your Managers pressure ALL of us to do so. Fake all Fake. Best Co. to work for... LIES all LIES....

    Pros

    PCI truly walks the talk. When they tell you they believe in a work/family healthy balance, they mean. When they go through their core values everyday..... they believe them. This company should be at the #1 slot of companies to work at. I feel so blessed to be a part of the PCI Team.

    Cons

    Honestly.... I got nothing...... unless you want to fault them for being OVER GENEROUS!

    Advice to Management

    Drew Clancy and his leadership team have this under control. The Servant Leadership belief runs deep and stays strong.
