    Pros

    Working at PMC in Engineering is like a thrilling & exciting roller coaster ride at times & a serene walk in woods at other times. The engineering staff is experienced and so there's no hand-holding but even better there's no micro-management and the co-workers are supportive. As an engineer one is expected to put those grey cells in the brain to use & come up with solutions to problems, suggest alternatives etc. so the person gets every chance to improve and grow as a professional rather than being a yes man who's spoon fed everything. The management is supportive, engineering staff gets opportunities to develop & grow themselves, further their knowledge, get opportunities to learn and then implement them in their daily workflow so that everyone can benefit. If one has any idea then that is heard out, people pitch in with suggestions/improvements and in no time one gets helping hands to implement that idea. The synergy among co-workers is vibrant & intoxicating.

    Pros

    A thriving publishing company constantly looking to grow. Very happy to be working in an environment that allows growth and where leadership cares, listens and encourages ideas. I've never worked in a corporate setting where the CEO meets with each new hire and than remembers your name!

    Cons

    Not enough office space in NYC.

    I worked at Penske Media full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fast paced work environment. Enthusiastic employees.

    Cons

    Intense work culture, little people culture. The variety of brands makes it tough to feel part of a larger team. Little skills training or encouragement from management to advance in your field/knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Provide learning opportunities for advancement in business technology that the company uses. Promote collaboration and skill sharing across brands.

    I have been working at Penske Media full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I have worked at 4 other Digital Media businesses, and none have the quality of leadership (especially a CEO who leads from the front lines meeting every employee in the company), also the focus on clear results, but not at the expense of doing what's right for humanity and the greater good.

    Cons

    More collaboration amongst the amazing brands in the company. So many opportunities for PMC to grow further by collaborating more.

    Advice to Management

    Never let Jay Penske and the senior leadership team RETIRE!!

    Pros

    This company enables you to be independent and autonomous. PMC hires experienced professionals, so they give you space to do your job without looking over your shoulder. You feel like you truly have the ability to affect change and to learn and grow at an environment that makes it fun to go to work every day. This is a company where you could spend your entire career. There is tons of upward mobility and the executive team is keen on hearing opinions from everyone at all levels of seniority. It feels very convivial and like there's much less hierarchy than at other organizations.

    Pros

    There are several things about PMC that make it an amazing place to be - too many to list. I wanted to simply point out that for those employees in the LA headquarters, we received this email from our CEO and HR team recently: 'With tonight’s forecasted winds and the threat of fires returning around the area, we want those of you in potential evacuation areas to know PMC is thinking of you and are here to support you. Should you and your loved ones be affected by evacuations, PMC would like to offer assistance and/or a place to stay during this time. Please simply reach out to us in Human Resources should there be a need of any kind.' I can't think of any other company, corporation, institution or business that would go out of its way for their employees like PMC does.
