Was great while it lasted
Senior Conference Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Lenexa, KS – October 19, 2018
Loved working for PGi for the most part, some days were better than others, but I'm sure that's every job. The place was laid back, Most of where we sat had all windows, and we were in an area that was just being developed so, for the most part, we had nice views. In 2013 or so, we bought ACT another conferencing company, then for some reason, we started running our calls their way! We had to train everyone to run these calls, it was a long laborious process. Then, in turn, was bought out by a private equity firm in 2015 and went private, that's when the issues started, within about a month a couple of people were let go. Things went downhill slowly after that. In May 2018 we were let go with absolutely no clue or hint. We were told to clear out our desks and leave ASAP. A few people got to stay with the company but got to work from home. some of them you can understand why, but some of them I think it was a popularity contest. All in all was a great place to work until it wasn't. Got paid very well for the work. Very laid back. Got to read, be on the internet during downtime or you were on a call. I loved the work, I probably would've been there for life.
free lunches during IR season, work life balance, got to eat at desk
