Does PBS Systems pay for a gym membership?

Pros

I have seen many negative comments about this company and it’s not all warranted! Now that I this is out of the way let’s get down to business. Like any company it has it’s challenges. These challenges are due to the rapid growth of the company. Whilst I can’t speak for every department I was apart of their IT department. This company gave an amazing opportunity to learn and grow as an IT professional, now if your looking for an easy job stay away! Go work at maybe Walmart. The CEO is an amazing guy! Very approachable and yes there are members of family working there, get over it! The people that you will meet there treat you like family. The company promotes health by having an indoor gym. The IT team I worked with was amazing! They mentored and trained me and the individuals I supported on a daily basis showed a lot of love and was understanding even if you made a blunder. I can’t stop thanking the lead and Manager of the IT department for the mentoring they gave me. Once again if you are looking to hone your skills learn new technologies build your resume this is the company for you. I left this company for monetary reasons and have come to learn it’s not all about the money.

Cons

High turnover due to how rapidly the this company is growing. You get discouraged due to the pay increase and bonus structure. Can be a little chaotic due to how quickly you have to learn, but once again I had great team mates to support me. Better benefits package, I know optical benefits can be tricky but as an IT professional you stare at a screen all day.

Advice to Management

You create a lot of talent! Please don’t lose them to other companies. Managers need to have more one on one meetings monthly to evaluate where staff members are at what they are experiencing. When decisions are made at the top about staff requests eg. more pay or better work life balance, more transparency is needed in the decision making process so staff does not feel as though they are working in vain.

The company promotes health by having an indoor gym.

What kind of career opportunities exist at PBS Systems?

Pros

I've worked with this company for almost 6 years now; and if you put in the proper dedication and work into your job and work with the company, there are plenty of opportunities for you. It's a family run company that doesn't make me feel like I work for "Corporate America", but rather that I'm part of a Family and a Vision. I'm proud of the work I put out, and I've been given many opportunities to grow and expand in ways that someone in my field normally wouldn't ever get. I see a great future for PBS and with it, I see a great future for myself. The opportunity to grow and expand and allow me to help shape that future.

Cons

I always believe that there's room for improvement, hence why I rarely rate anything 5 stars. With any company, of course, there are always office politics and of course, benefits could always be better. But unfortunately we don't live in paradise, and you need to take the good with the bad, and the good far outweighs the bad. What could be improved upon is cracking down on the employees with negative attitudes, that doesn't necessarily give off a team vibe. Or cracking down on those employees who are hurting the company rather than contributing to it. These people sometimes hurt PBS rather than help it by bring negative attitudes and having others need to do extra work for them.

Advice to Management

PBS is a very fast growing company, and with that comes a lot of growing pains. Keep working through them; because we are very quickly evolving into a large corporation with great opportunities on the horizon. Explore new benefits, step back and take a look at some of the trouble spots that seem to pop up throughout the company; but don't lose your culture along the way and don't forget what you stand for because that's what makes me love this company.

The opportunity to grow and expand and allow me to help shape that future.

How are promotions handled at PBS Systems?

Pros

There is really nothing positive that I can say

Cons

Management Compensation is inadequate You will be given promises that will be undelivered If you are not family or a favorite, you won't get anywhere with this company Promotions are given to favorites & family Communication between departments is poor Micromanagement Managers will "test" you If you try to stand up for yourself, you will be met with vindictive behavior from management. You are just a number here Per diem for travel is low They will overwork you, burn you out, and expect you to be content Constant gossip going on everyday within the company

Advice to Management

Be more professional & take care of your employees who work their butts off

Promotions are given to favorites & family
