How are the career development opportunities at PSAV?

Pros

There is quite a bit of opportunity within the company as it continues to grow. 401k match as well as transportation/cell phone reimbursement are great perks. There are tons of training resources and I believe that they truly value their employees. Lots of camaraderie on a regional level.

Cons

The company has grown so much that it is in uncharted territory. There is quite a bit of tinkering as they find their way. This leads to a lot of convoluted procedures, messaging and initiatives that burn out just as quick as they are announced. I'm confident they'll find their way. Just growing pains I suppose. As new executive leadership has moved in from outside the industry there is a continually growing gap between what we actually do and what corporate thinks is best. Our industry is different to say the least. A cookie cutter approach to our business often doesn't translate well. Unfortunately, our clients perception of PSAV is often negative as we continually raise prices.

Advice to Management

Please make sure that we don't overlook why we are all here. There is a increased focus on the numbers at the end of the day. I hope we don't lose sight of how we got there and continue to support the folks in the trenches as much as possible.
