Worst Company Ever

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Progressive Business Publications

ProsThere are a lot of good people that work there.

ConsThey give a false sense of empowerment and pretend to embrace your business ideas... when in reality, it's like working in a version of the Hunger Games.
Upper Management interferes with how mid-management runs their business - then blame them when their idea fails.
They claim they are a "people" company but I only saw that if the employee was earning them a considerable amount of cash... even then.. they did not really treat employees with respect.

Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop uniform company policies and if you give your word
