    Pros

    PCT tries very hard to run itself like a business, as opposed to a nonprofit, and one can learn many practices more associated with private firms, like a disciplined approach to investment and brand risk management. PCT is very well funded relative to peers, and once a project goes through the long and grinding approval process, funds flow. Provided an expense is justified and consistent with the goals of the project and the mission of PCT, one is very likely to be able to spend freely on research and advocacy tools on a scale that is unmatched. It is a very female-friendly work environment.

    Cons

    The CEO has and wields an extraordinary amount of power. She requires her approval on a vast amount of PCT business, and this slows the pace of work and is extremely expensive (though a hidden cost). When decisions are made at the top they often appear arbitrary and capricious; things that were OK for one group, project, or person are not OK for another, and explanations are rarely offered. Reorganizations are ubiquitous. Strict dress code (what is a sweater set?). She approves all promotions (even internal hires from one position to another that constitute a promotion) and they will not be considered until someone has been there for two years or maybe three years…except in those cases when she grants them for someone who hasn’t been there two (or three) years. Big Brother could learn something about brand management from PCT; it is very likely the CEO will read this post, for example. Fear of failure dominates the desire for success as the chief motivator (I am fearful right now, for example). Trust is absent. Taken together, it is difficult to say that senior management put the employees in a position to actually succeed, although everyone is well positioned to appear as if they succeeded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your people. Trust your people.
