Poor Leadership and Organization
Auditor/Analyst (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJanuary 12, 2019
Management needs to learn what it means to be a manager. Used scare tactics and shaming to promote production. Very little positive feedback or advancement opportunities.

Company in transition with lots of turnover and lots of work to be done.
Employment Case Manager (Former Employee) –  El Cajon, CAJanuary 4, 2019
While I was at PCG there was a considerable amount of turnover that saw multiple coworkers leave and management struggled to build a system to help remaining employees to handle to workload.
The amount of work that was asked of was simply to much.
Pros
Helping people.
Cons
Unrealistic expectations for amount of work and timelines.

Bright ideas, but, slow to get there....
Enrollment Specialist III (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZNovember 9, 2018
Over the past 18 months, there have been talks of change and the need for greater appreciation for the staff. I have not felt the appreciation. As a former trainer, I place a great deal of value on training. In my current department, training is not on the forefront of the agenda.
Pros
I love the people I work with.
Cons
The culture of the company, leaves much to be desired.

Customer Service Representative II (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLNovember 1, 2018
With this being a infant site for the company there is a lot of improvement need. For employee appreciation and not to mention the site being a remote site from higher managements

A good place to work. A decent workplace culture and environment. Nothing out of the ordinary or off-putting or unusual. No unexpected work experiences.

Service Desk Specialist lll (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZOctober 14, 2018
This is an amazing place to work, I remember first being hired into the help desk position as a temp from a staffing agency. It has been a little over a year now and I have been promoted twice. This is a place where hard working dedicated individuals will get where they want to go as far as career advancements or other opportunities to learn a new field. All of the equipment and knowledge is provided too you with amazingly talented trainers.
Pros
Remote Worker, free training & skill database to access willingly

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.

Please read
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.

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.
