Does PBS Systems have an on site gym?

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.

What is it like working with clients or customers at PBS Systems?

Pros

You get to travel to some places you would never had gone to. This is a great place to gather some skills before your next career journey. There are a lot of broken links in the company and management is out of tune with their employees.

Cons

Vacation policy Benefits Compensation Vacation policy Benefits Compensation The salary here is below industry standards. You get the best treatment and perks of you are part of the cool kids squad. Only eligible for vacay after one year and only for 2 weeks. Doesn’t feel like you work for a software company. Listening to their employees would help this company achieve greatness. No care for traveling employees or compassion.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees. Act like an actual software company in 2021. Break up the fraternity mindset among employees.

What is the work environment like at PBS Systems?

Pros

Really cool people to work with. Company really promotes the team culture. Work environment is very welcoming and great.

Cons

Training for new employees is something that is really missing. You are expected to learn and know everything somehow on your own. This really affects morale. The pay is pretty low compared to the industry. Travelling for work you are not given a laptop just for work. Makes this tough when on the road.

Advice to Management

Get advice and feedback from frontline employees. Stay competitive within the industry so employees stay and see themselves at the company for their entire career not just a stepping stone. Benefits and vacation could be better. 2 weeks is insufficient.

Work environment is very welcoming and great.

How is the office food at PBS Systems?

Pros

Excellent training, my manager was excellent, Free coffee, free parking

Cons

HR or mgmt believe they can train whom ever to do the job. They can't acknowledge skilled employee or are intemidate by multi-talented individuals

Advice to Management

Jumping to conclusion about stories not a proper way to manage employees, Managing employees is the process of accepting people for who they are with the knowledge they have accumulated, not what you believe they should be. That’s a true manager. This can be very costly to an organization and can cause ration of staff trying to find an image of themself.
