Senior Trade Compliance Specialist (Former Employee) – Marlborough, MA 01752 – October 23, 2018
Illegal gambling, racist remarks and hate speech are the things you are required to partake in to fit in, otherwise they will push you out. This review needs more words and letters so here we have them. Don't work here if you actually have a brain or a soul. You will be sorry.
Typical Day at work is cold calling 80-100 dials a day and sending emails trying to get in contact with IT professionals. I learned how to be persistent and how to stay positive in a job that I started to dislike as I moved forward in my time at Park Place. Management is not the greatest. You have the rich getting richer at the top of the food chain and if you get stuck with a manager that was hired externally or has never been in your shoes before and sold at Park Place then it is hard for them to relate to your everyday job and they just stress that a high volume of measured metrics is the solution when it is not. The hardest part about the job is cold calling IT professionals all day every day because they do not want to speak with you. You are limited in the companies you can call based on geographical location so the job does get very redundant and very boring quickly. The most enjoyable part about the job was the office atmosphere.
Benefits, 401K Health Care
Not much room for upward advancement or promotion within the company.
Field Service Engineer/Level (Former Employee) – Concord, NC – June 15, 2018
I was a field service engineer working on multiple hardware platforms for numerous customers. Great opportunity. Met lots of great people both within Park Place and at customer sites. Training was great and prepared me for my day-to-day job responsibilities.
Paid per mile travel (at the time), flexible scheduling based on customer, great management
Buyer/Planner (Current Employee) – Marlborough, MA – April 18, 2018
Good place to work overall, fast paced growing company. Manager was not involved in day to day and made ill advised decisions. Little to no room for advancement, hire from outside a lot. Recognition hardly ever received, credit often given to others. Long hours, little compensation for extended efforts.
Shipping and Receiving Specialist (Current Employee) – Marlboro, MA – January 30, 2018
This place used to be good to work for but as they are buying more companies they are losing the small company feel. Manager dont seem to care that you may have other responsibilities and push for more and ore overtime instead of hiring more people.
Business Development Associate (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – October 22, 2017
Leading edge company with unsurpassed environment and training. Moved into a territory ahead of schedule. Stressful role and decided it was time to retire and look for part time and less stress position. Growing organization growing organically and through strategic aquisitions.
Customer Support Analyst (Former Employee) – Marlborough, MA – September 26, 2017
The company is employee-centric and has events throughout the year to show appreciation. There is something new to learn every day; not a boring job! The most enjoyable part of the job are the customer interactions; over 97% positive.
Park Place provides an adequate work/life balance, limited growth opportunities with a compensation package based on an earn-through value. Financial deficits exist if you do not exceed quota. Primary focus in on heavy cold-calling volume.
Senior Buyer/Planner (Former Employee) – Marlborough, MA – November 4, 2016
The work Job Work/Life Balance fails big time. During storms employees were not permitted to work from home in all departments. Management Team is a revolving door and none of the management members know what the team does on a daily basis but wishes to change it. You are expected to work at least 60 hours as a salaried employee (not in handbook but managers think this outloud) paid for 40 hrs. Atmosphere is very unprofessional- and managers tend to be gossipers
I've worked around many high intensity inside sales forces. This was the weirdest place I've ever worked. Managers lack any sense of professionalism. Most have no real management experience outside PP and are basically making it up as they go. I was a member of what could be called Mgmt. there. Everything is political and it's like working for a high school click. If you're on the in crowd and selling a ton, you will be ok. Anyone else who wasn't around when they broke ground, doesn't stand a chance. They are growing like crazy, and the inside sales people are VERY well paid. As someone who has seen comp plans from other organizations, theirs is unsustainable. The ridiculous pay and young workforce leads to some huge personalities, and not in a good way. Once a month all the employees are called into a meeting and forced to watch ludicrous bonus checks handed out. Keep in mind that not everyone in the room is in sales, so it lowers moral among employees not on commission or bonus. The thought of making someone from a support role watch as a young punk kid gets a 20K check is not going to make them feel better about their contribution.
Management there sucks! They are only out for themselves and there's no balance between work and home life. If working 12 hours a day for 8 hours of pay then by all means this job is for you! Way too stressful for the pay involved!
benefits are ok
Long hours, unappreciative managers, no work/life balance. management management doesn't like hearing their way is not working
