    I have been working at Pioneer Technologies Corp full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company is dynamic and can respond to changes quickly. The short organizational structure allows for immediate access to the President who can address problems quickly. The support staff is helpful and friendly and does try to help the employees. The company does offer standard benefits (401k match, health, dental, time-off, etc)

    Cons

    By far the biggest problem is the President who is a micro-manager. Rather than focusing on strategic level issues and building the business, he concerns himself with the day-to-day minutia of what's going on each task or contract. His constant interjections do nothing but detract from work and annoy both the employees and those we're trying to support. Constant phone calls, both during the work week and weekend, are another symptom of his "hands on approach". In addition, the benefits packages are sub-par at best. It's clear to me that the company went shopping for benefits and chose the packages with the least options and lowest price tag. Salary is OK, but the 401k match is less than industry average. Medical, Dental and Insurance offerings are unremarkable and vacation time is the same as an employee at McDonalds. There is zero opportunity for career advancement. Employees service a contract and if the contract is gone, so are you. Therefore, PTC has no reason to expend resources trying to improve employees through education or advance their careers. Finally, recent management changes and squabbles have interjected unnecessary and unwanted drama and drawn employees into the middle. So much so that at one point I felt I was back in high school being asked by A what Y thought of him because P heard from K that Y said something unflattering?!

    I have been working at Pioneer Technologies Corp full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The support you get from your team members and the support staff is superb. The smaller size of the company means you aren't a number lost in the bureaucratic haze. The people you need to get things done know your name and care about you.

    Cons

    We had a tough time for a while during the recession but came through it stronger. The new organizational structure eliminated the problems we had before that we causing issues.

    Pros

    A company that works hard to make it's team of employees happy with a flexible schedule, competitive benefits package, puts your family first, and goes out of their way to make sure your needs are taken care of.

    Cons

    Primary business is in the defense industry, which has its ups and downs.

    I have been working at Pioneer Technologies Corp full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working for a small company comes with great advantages. When there is a problem or an unforeseen change in the market a small company like PTC can quickly change course to meet the challenge. I have seen the management completely reorganize operations in a period of a few months to adjust to changes and it was great to not have to wait for a titanic sized course change to make it happen. Also being a small company the entire management team knows everyone and are genuinely interested in the well being of every employee. It is not unheard of for the company president to help employees get home to visit sick or dying relatives on very short notice using his own funds.

    Cons

    Because it is a small company with a single owner policies, procedures and strategies can change quickly to meet business case needs but these changes aren't always clear, consistent or communicated to the entire team.

    I worked at Pioneer Technologies Corp full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Many people in the company were able to telecommute which enabled a very flexible schedule. We were free to schedule travel as required to meet customer requirements. While customer satisfaction was the first priority, the management style was very hands-off, as Senior Management trusted everyone to get their work done each day.

    Cons

    There was a bit more travel than I would have liked, but I very rarely had to travel over a weekend.
