Enjoyed time here but....
Buyer/Planner (Current Employee) –  Marlborough, MAApril 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, MAJanuary 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.
Pros
plenty of overtime if you want it
Cons
plenty of overtime if you want it

Customer Support Analyst (Former Employee) –  Marlborough, MASeptember 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.
Pros
Benefits, co-workers
Cons
typical of a fast growing company

Strong, collaborative culture. Below average compensation
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHJuly 15, 2017
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.

Pay is good...
Senior Level 3 Tech Support (Former Employee) –  Marlborough, MAJune 8, 2017
...but there isn't much else to say. Long hours with an ever-expanding list of tasks and minutia. Very little room for advancement. Differences in opinion of direction are generally ignored.

Productive fun work place
Business Development Associate (Former Employee) –  Mayfield, OHApril 18, 2017
Fun company with great people to work with. Sales department starts to develop into a sweatshop of cold-calling. You really need to find good territories to work in.

Not a very progressive company
Channel Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILFebruary 24, 2017
Most of the management just wanted to be away from sales, and most of sales just wanted to meet there quota. There wasnt a whole lot of drive in the sales force. Not very motivated.

Field Service technician (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAFebruary 2, 2017

New Management Means New Prbolems
Senior Buyer/Planner (Former Employee) –  Marlborough, MANovember 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
Pros
salary
Cons
management/ each office follows own protical

Boiler Room Sales Organization
Sales Organization (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHOctober 23, 2015
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.
Pros
High pay for successful sales
Cons
Horrible culture and management

Not worth the headaches and stress.
N/A (Former Employee) –  Mayfield Hts, OHNovember 22, 2014
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!
Pros
benefits are ok
Cons
Long hours, unappreciative managers, no work/life balance. management management doesn't like hearing their way is not working

Great Place to Work and Great Great People
Manager (Current Employee) –  Chagrin Falls, OHAugust 29, 2014
Best thing about the company is the people. No corporate nonsense. Just good people trying to do their very best for the customer and the company. Good teamwork across the board. Company is growing and there's been lots of opportunity.
Pros
Great co-workers, hard working managers.
Cons
Pace is fast - too fast for some.

Racist and corrupt management
Customer Support Analst (Former Employee) –  Marlboro, MAJuly 17, 2013
Park Place has good people working for it but the managers are awful for the most part. They call employees of different ethnicity names and allow other employees to do so with no repercussions. The VP of HR is snarky and useless. Managers and HR go out to eat and socialize... Not a recipe for fairness if you ask me. My manager and supervisors were so dumb they couldn't spell or do simple math. <--- that's no joke... They almost never hire from within and brag about how you can advance within the organization. All in all the worst job I've ever held.
Pros
Payed some bills.
Cons
Not worth the heartache.

Growing Sales Force, young crowd, intense production environment
Key Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Chagrin Falls, OHAugust 7, 2012
Typical day: cold calling, training meetings, admin items.

Sales is all about needs, timing and rapport.

Co-workers: Friendly and helpful.

Management: Needs traning and to learn how to be more professional.

Hardest part of job: uncovering opportunities through cold calls.

Most enjoyable: helping clients save money and provide convenince to them.
