      Pros

      Good working environment. Nice products. Pay is also good. Helpful colleagues. You will be in limelight, if you perform well. Work from home. Higher management easily accessible. Work life balance is fine.

      Cons

      Frequent change in management and policy. Because of that loosing good talent and employee having in depth product knowledge. No active development in India, mostly bug fixing and small feature work done here. Frequent changes in company strategies.

      Staying long at Progress can be injurious to your career

      Pros

      - Small company so theoretically you have better visibility. Cozy office space - Some good benefits. Work from home. Work life balance is ok. - Can pull off few hours of google search as “research/innovation” and bask in its glory. - Haven for process junkies.

      Cons

      - Legacy products to maintain and people who know them have either left or are leaving. - Zero value for longevity. Employees are mere resources. - Especially in Hyderabad office: Favoritism. Whimsical mid level managers and directors have too much power (and no scrutiny). Closed room meetings. Defunct HR. Employees hardly have any voice. - Since Jan ’16, layoffs are now a quarterly ritual. - Lack of technical leadership. Developers are ultimate scapegoat. However, if you are a QA, you are probably in a better position. - Unclear future direction.

      [Review for DataRPM] -- Good people and idea, mediocre management, bad execution

      May 18, 2017 - Senior Software Engineer in Bangalore
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      ***** I've worked only for DataRPM which got acquired by Progress, this review is NOT for Progress overall, only for DataRPM (Glassdoor doesn't let me select DataRPM as the company) **** Pros -- Chilled out culture -- Flexible timings -- Excellent work life balance -- Liberty and freedom to employees -- Good people -- Good compensation -- Impressive Product pitch and use cases

      Cons

      -- Good product idea and pitch, good use cases it can cater to, but bad execution -- Poor decision making at product design and development -- Poor prioritization of things, leading to a poor quality product -- Management always in a a haste to add newer and newer features to the product to improve its pitch -- They do this to attract investments/acquisition/customers (but quite a few customer engagements end after initial POCs due to poor product quality) -- Less focus on product quality, robustness and good design. The focus is just the pitch, not the product. -- Lack of well defined standard processes for design, development, deployment and testing. -- Chaotic planning. Workarounds and shortcuts everywhere -- This hampers the learning of employees, work starts seeming less challenging
