More Pros and Cons
Management, HR, and recruiting have been excellent to deal with over the years. I have always been treated very well, PRS treats their employees with much respect.
I ve never had an issue with payroll in form, which is wonderful. PRS has the best reporting system (Q-Trax) in the business — daily mobile reporting is extremely easy and helpful.
I think their pay structure is very fair both for hourly and salary employees. Being able to work remotely from a home office is wonderful and having the autonomy over my daily schedule is great.
We use countless forms of digital communication and I feel the company does a great job of keeping up with the constant change and evolution of technology.
My favorite part thus far has been the people I ve worked with, I couldn t say more about them all.
Depending on the program you work on, your job can be gone with no notice. I ve worked on a few programs that ended with no notice. I was lucky enough to be transitioned to another program but not everyone will experience that. This is the nature of the business and nothing that PRS can do to fix.
Understand working for a third-party marketing firm is not highly stable — it can be for upper management but not everyone else.
Also don t expect to get discounts on the products you represent, clients don t offer employees discount portals on products which is a bit odd considering you re in the field to support, sell and grow their market share. You would think the client would want employees in the field to have real life experience with their product but that is not the case for most clients/brands that work with PRS in my experience.
Qtrax mobile has an auto-scroll down feature that makes me sick.
Advice to Management
Upper management (above regional managers) needs to do a better job of getting face to face with people in the field to get feedback from the horses mouth and get a better idea of what goes on in the field. Sometimes things are done by people who don t spend time and the field and don t make much sense for those that do.
