Social Services Coordinator - Financial Consultant (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNSeptember 18, 2018
It is a very interesting place to work. You have to be willing to work hard. If you can work hard then you will move up in the company. So stay focused.

Ops (Former Employee) –  Medford, MAAugust 29, 2018
As a former employee, PLEASE save yourself time & withdrawal your application. The less qualified that finally found a way up become power hungry and don't know how to act. It's quite sickening actually. People get upset when you ask for help, and expect you to know everything.
Pros
The people I met who felt the same way, uplifting and encouraging us.
Cons
The environment sucks, they've fired ppl who've worked 5+ over budget. Also fired an employee in front of us.

Caseloads over 100 and unrealistic exceptions. Great for entry level social services. You will learn how to manage a high caseload and work with variety of clients. This job will prepare you for your forever job.

Counselor II (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAJuly 23, 2018
PCG can be an enjoyable place to work, but is totally dependent on your direct manager.
Not for outside the box thinkers.
Work/life balance is not great
Lots of good people but management had some issues. Leadership had problems with direction and motivating its teams.

Training and Education (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAJuly 17, 2018
Management is terrible. Misogynistic, calling women clients derogatory curse words, playing favorites and gossiping. Raises and bonuses are based on performance but promotions are not.
Working from home was nice, and they had a generous travel expense and internet cost allowance.

Stay away
EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAJuly 2, 2018
Yep, STAY AWAY...Unless you are desperate. 'Nuff said?
No upward mobility, and low pay is the norm for the operations sector.
The salesmen and managers do move up, and they do make good money, especially the managers.
Pros
Bonus twice each year, some great people to work with, decent leave policy.
Cons
Everything about this company is in need of tear down and rebuild, Management is made up of hand picked cronies, Management = a bunch of cowboys, Ever hear of " herding cats? You'll get lots of practice here.

Director, Finance & Administration, IMS Group (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJune 27, 2018
PCG can be an enjoyable place to work, but is totally dependent on your direct manager. Managers rule the whole company and every one else is second tier.

Senior Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  VAJune 18, 2018
Overall, depending on your position, you can work from home at times. Gained a lot of knowledge while working there but could be very chaotic at times.

Needs More Diversity and Inclusion
Client Mentor (Current Employee) –  San Diego CAJune 18, 2018
I think that this company means well but seems to be fairly new at communication and consistency in implementing policies. A marked lack of fairness.
Pros
They try to help the community
Cons
Too top down

Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCMay 8, 2018
PCG looks to support process maintenance and not process Improvement. They prefer to maintain the status quo and to not improve upon what already exists. I am not sure if this is only internal to the team that I work with or applies to multiple other teams with the company but I am speaking from experience just from my area. If you have your Six Sigma certification, this is not the company for you. Unfortunately you will not be able to use this skill set in your day-to-day work activities. The expectation is that you were available to work additional hours because of the current process. Process Improvement would eliminate the need for additional hours with employees as well as the need for additional employees but I think there is a sense of fear in working with contracts with government agencies that prevents moving toward process Improvement. There is little to no communication from management.
Pros
Occasional free lunches, pay is ok
Cons
Long hours expected, very poor communication from management

It was something alright
Sys Admin (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAApril 4, 2018
Working at PCG is similar to walking into a burning building without the firemens bunker gear or self-contained breathing apparatus. You know its a bad idea and do it anyways. It doesn't hit you that there's no way out until you're in the middle of the burning building with no way out. ...................
Pros
Pays well
Cons
Poor leadership

Manager (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAMarch 14, 2018
PCG is an amazing place to work but not without its flaws. I had incredible opportunities and was able to grow and take on exciting work. You do work hard. Work/life balance is not great and while you are paid very well at higher levels, that is not true at lower and entry levels. Most co-workers are terrific and work hard.
Pros
Generous vacation
Cons
Little time to take vacation

Manager of Delivery Service Team (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXMarch 6, 2018
It was a good place to work, Lots of good people but management had some issues. Leadership had problems with direction and motivating its teams. Mangement was hit and miss. Somedays they were ready and had plans and direction but then would disappear.
Lots of potential in a company.

Claims Specialist (Former Employee) –  El Cajon, CAFebruary 8, 2018
A typical day, in my role, was to process payments. Management did not always know what the staff did on a day to day basis. The hardest part was competition and lack of communication.

Medicaid Claims Supervisor/Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNJanuary 30, 2018
PCG was a pretty good place to work. Parking is very expensive, however, you can park at Nissan stadium and shuttle to the building. Otherwise, it will run about 150+ per month
Pros
Good pay
Cons
No Parking

Case Management Specialist (Current Employee) –  Chula Vista, CA 91911January 2, 2018
This place is not a great place to work at. Management is terrible and so is vacation time, not to mention work ethics of this place are completely unseen.
