I have been working at PBS Systems full-time (More than 10 years)
Over the last year, I’ve read many reviews posted here and would like to add my comments. I think that the people posting negative reviews do not have a lot of experience working for growing companies. The majority of the negative comments/complaints here are found at any corporate office.
I have been fortunate to work for PBS for many years, in several positions, over my 10+ years with them. I am proud to work for a company who continues to grow every year. Yes, there have been challenges with the rapid growth, but the challenges I’ve seen are comparable to other companies I’ve worked for. The grass is not greener with another company, and actually, in my opinion, in many cases, upper management has been ahead of the game when making changes. PBS continues to hire experts in their fields so that the culture continues to successfully grow with the advice and guidance from these experts.
If you work hard, PBS does recognize and reward you. The comment that only family or friends get promoted or favored is not true. PBS is a family-oriented business. Family started the business and other family members came on board. Over the years, employees have suggested to their family members to apply for positions, because PBS is a great company to work for. That shows that employees believe in PBS and enjoy working here. There is a huge number of people who have worked for PBS for over 10 years. Of course, these employees develop friendships with the owners and executive staff. These family and friends value PBS and believe in its vision, so they will work and go above and beyond to reach goals.

Advice to Management
Would like to see all managers adopt the corporate values so that there is more continuity throughout departments in the company and to see formalized trainings for corporate initiatives that would enhance work environments and promote career growth.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PBS Systems (Calgary, AB) in November 2015.
Fairly standard process. Had two seperate on the phone interviews, one with HR and one with the program manager, as well as one in person with two managers. Overall quite intensive but nothing out of the ordinary.
