I worked at Progressive Business Publications full-time

Pros

Casual work environment, mentoring program with children of an inner-city school, flexible hours

Cons

Will do anything to make money, even if it is unethical
Very poor reputation
Little to no managerial interaction with staff
Too many random divisions and departments under one roof
Shady business practices
Low pay
Poor facilities
Terrible technology

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop being "sneaky" and trying to make profits however you can - conduct legitimate business. Your unethical practices are taking their toll on your reputation.

    Worst Company Ever

    I worked at Progressive Business Publications

    Pros

    There are a lot of good people that work there.

    Cons

    They 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 ManagementAdvice

    Develop uniform company policies and if you give your word

    I worked at Progressive Business Publications part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Easy, laid back. You can wear shorts.

    Cons

    Tedious work. Extremely boring and repetitive. I would rather be unemployed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go out of business.
