    Company that doesn't follow their own "proclaimed" values. Run away as fast as you can.

    Pros

    Not many. But if you are willing to be a follower and do what they say you will get by. You need to be someone who doesn't think for themselves.

    Cons

    Search the web for "progressive business publications" and look at the search results.
    You will see a great deal of negative publicity about the company exploiting people at businesses across the country. This is reason enough not to work there.

    On top of that, consider the people who work there for a long time and are comfortable with this fact. They obviously are either stuck there or don't find anything wrong with misleading or taking advantage of people. Why would you want to work with them?

    In addition to these facts, my experience at the company was very in line with the negative facts that come up in the search results. People there didn't really care about the customers, nor did management really care about employees. The turnover rate of employees was very high and customers were always calling into complain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do not think advice will help this management team.

    I worked at Progressive Business Publications full-time

    Pros

    Very friendly people who want the company to grow and succeed.

    Cons

    Flat organization with no career growth. HR issues common. Suggestions for improvement regularly shot down by management who regularly bend or break the rules. Money is wasted on failing divisions and morale is typically low. Dishonest tactics for most business practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your hard workers instead of hiring corporate misfits who make six figure salaries and then leave a year later. Spend some resources developing your loyal employees and promote from within. Break up the boy's club mentality and open up the club for others to succeed.
