      Pros

      Always includes fun activities like happy hours, group mixers, etc. They really try to make their employees feel special.

      Cons

      The workspace is not inclusive. and maybe 5% of the people on the floor is in the BIPOC community. Working there is a hit or miss depending on your manager.

      Pros

      None. This company is a joke.

      Cons

      Bad company. They let me go in a round of mass layoffs after having only worked there for 7 months and quitting another job I loved to work there.

      A great place to start your career, but don't be afraid to move on

      Pros

      There are clear goals and plans, transparency is a priority for management, and the time off and benefits are competitive. Some managers are good, some managers are bad (I had both), but your team will keep you afloat no matter what. PS has a way of attracting really savvy individuals. There's a LOT you can learn here, especially if you're just starting out in the industry.

      Cons

      PS tends to recruit younger women—its their target audience, after all—and when you're just starting out, you may not realize that your growth here stagnates at a certain time. This can happen anywhere, but it's especially true at PS, where perks can distract you from the fact that you've stopped advancing in your career. Don't be afraid to ask for what you need (training, more responsibilities, reasons to interact with other departments so you can learn from them), because it won't be given to you otherwise. Work/life balance is nonexistent in the beginning, but it does get better with longer tenure. The glass door (so to speak) rotates frequently, so you may find your duties change frequently as employees come and go.
