I worked at Progressive Business Publications

Pros

Accommodating to individual schedules, casual dress code, unlikely to be fired

Cons

No career growth, flat organization with high paid managers prevent opportunities to move up, no raises, money invested in new ideas and often failed due to poor planning, overpaid managers in failing divisions, underpaid employees in successful divisions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit paying executives to work for one year at the highest salary and then leave. Reward company loyalty and plan your future. Get ahead of the industry curve instead of dragging your feet. Don't be so stingy with employee salaries so you're not scraping the bottom of the barrel for talent.

    Current Employee - Sales Representative in Malvern, PA (US)
    Current Employee - Sales Representative in Malvern, PA (US)

    I have been working at Progressive Business Publications

    Pros

    flexible work schedule and the ability to get benefits and vacation after 6 mo probationary period. "state of the art facility"

    Cons

    Inept management who really only care about their own careers, not yours. There is absolutely no product training to speak of and their only concern is that you are indoctrinated on the history of their owner and his exploits. benefit package is meager at best and it appears they only want you to invest in their 401k so that upper management can get fat before they fire you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to school and learn how to run a business properly in the 21st century. The employees and clients alike are on to you and are not as "green" as you would like to assume.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and that is about it.

    Cons

    Inefficient manner of farming/hunting new business, horrible base pay. They hire recent college grads/young people to do their dirt work. Recent college grads want experience, not $$$, which they are keeping for themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that technology is changing and can be useful
