Pursue Excellence Purposefully

If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right. More than right, actually. We shoot for knocking it out of the park.

Unlock Human Potential

We stack the deck by choosing the right people, then develop and support them to become the best that they can be because work is a place to learn, stretch, dream, GO! We believe that people have potential. We believe people have the capacity for greatness. At notthebigcompany, our job is to help them unlock it.

Lead With a Servant's Heart

Lead With a Servant's Heart (so important it gets its own section)

What exactly is Servant Leadership? It’s simple. Serve first. Leadership will follow.

Leaders are equal parts teacher, information provider, knowledge imparter, and standard setter. They see things through your eyes and ask, “How can I help?” They build their people - they help them grow and lift them up.

Leaders use their heart. They have faith in their people. They’re humble. They have a sense of humor about themselves. They have an open mind.

Leaders have high goals. They create plans and set them in motion. They recognize what’s working and what’s not and make the hard decisions, when necessary, in order to protect their people.

And lastly, Leaders can be led. They are not interested in having their own way, but in finding the best way.

We all aspire to be Servant Leaders at PCI. A Servant Leader is the best kind of Leader.
