Development Team Lead (Former Employee), McLean, VA – September 18, 2012
Pros: great environment for working
Cons: consideration of sales targets unrealistic
PPC is a mid size company. Typical day at work is reflective of searching Govwin, updating Salesforce and visiting customers. The VP of business development is an exceptional person and the VP of GITSS is awesome. Hardest part of the job is the sales expectation of service sales with a product mentality.
After several years of financial struggle, the firm was acquired by a private equity firm. Future unknown.
Director, Strategic Solutions Division (SSD) (Former Employee), McLean, VA – August 19, 2013
Pros: it professionals who have not forgotten the human touch
Cons: business has become driven by the bottom line
Individuals and organizations who had business relations with PPC in the past probably won't recognize the organization. While several good individuals from the old days remain, much of the senior staff is new.
My recommendation for persons interviewing with PPC is to ask detailed questions about the business plan and service offerings. Look for concrete – more... steps the management team has undertaken to implement a long term vision in both areas. – less
Sr. Associate (Former Employee), McLean, VA – May 31, 2012
Small firm allows everyone to feel like an important part of the bigger goal. Emphasis placed on work hard/play hard mentality. Employees were rewarded for successes and encouraged to push themselves to step up and take ownership of work.
