    Current Employee - Digital Sales Executive in London, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Digital Sales Executive in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at Progressive Digital Media full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Good commission structure
    - Fun incentives

    Cons

    - Dirty offices
    - Unethical business practices
    - Sweat shop environment / long work hours
    - Stressful work environment, continuous micro management
    - Staff undervalued
    - No room for internal promotion or growth
    - No kitchen facilities (If you want coffee/tea, purchase from company canteen)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Downsize your sales force, sack the slackers, employ professionals on better salaries and treat your employees like human beings and not robots. You will be surprised by the results. Company products (digital magazines/websites) need to deliver results. Put some money behind marketing your products! Employees are encouraged to misrepresent, grab the money and run! This is wholly unethical and not something you would expect from a company of this size. Open up a kitchen facility so that your employees can make their own tea/coffee. Bring in professional cleaners as the offices are filthy. Carpeting looks like its not been cleaned in 20 years.

    I worked at Progressive Digital Media full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    + Employs recent graduates
    + Young company with social activities

    Cons

    - Little or no opportunities to be promoted
    - Money focused company, do not invest in their employees
    - Hierarchical
    - Low salary (no annual reviews or opportunities for an salary increase)
    - No work / life balance (expect employees to work 12 hours each day without any benefits)
    - Teams understaffed in some departments
    - Say that they encourage creativity but everything comes from top managers. What they say you have to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees, it will benefit the company in the long run. If an employee care about the company for which they work for they will perform better and stay in the company longer than one year. This way they will develop their internal knowledge and also be able to help develop the company further.

    Pros

    Commission based work means you develop a strong work ethic and an eye for sales. Some very effective sales people around who are good to learn from.

    Cons

    Pretty awful sales environment. Very aggressive and focussed on KPIs. Senior staff can be very aggressive if you're not meeting your KPIs. Environment can change from pleasant to unpleasant very quickly indeed!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that everything you force your employees to do is honest!
