I have been working at Progressive Business Publications full-time

Pros

If you put in the work and time to learn about the company you will be rewarded with increased responsibility and opportunity.
You are always encouraged to try new things and new approaches which is a refreshing change from other organizations I have worked for.
Very involved in the community and believes in and encourages giving back - something that is missing in many companies today.

Cons

More vacation time would be nice, but I have learned from past experience, sometimes you pay for more vacation time through unpaid/unrecognized overtime.

    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
