Chapter 20. Two Routes to the Top > Pros and Cons of PFW

Pros and Cons of PFW

There are both advantages and disadvantages to building a lifetime career as a stabilizer in a single organization. Those who join companies with PFW intentions usually compete with those inside the company for better positions. They need not worry so much about outsiders who might be hired to fill positions to which they aspire. Theoretically, everyone has a chance to compete, despite differences in education and experience. When someone at the top retires, a chain reaction can open up many positions all the way down the organizational ladder. Several position openings, of course, are possible only if reorganization does not take place or certain positions are not eliminated.

Organizations with PFW policies usually provide good training for their employees, so that they are ready to assume more responsibility when opportunities arise. Because on-the-job time is spent on training of all kinds, it also usually means that such companies will encourage their employees to continue their formal education and will often pay for tuition. As a result, employees are less likely to be ignored or lost in the shuffle.
