I have been working at Progress Software full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Not sure if I can see any Pros. Jay Bhatt is not the CEO as the company page here claims.

Cons

where do i begin? no clear vision at any level. senior management is clueless. CEO bailed few months ago. still without a CEO. not sure if a new CEO will even join this mess.
Company products are legacy by today's technology standards. Not may talented employees remain. Even if some talented ones want to stick around they are sent home packing in the name of strategy change

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If these guys need advice then they are not meant for their jobs. No amount of advice can turn this ship around. It's like re-arranging the chairs on the Titanic

    Pros

    There used to be lots and lots of pros. Now, I am having trouble seeing any pros.

    Cons

    With our CEO's decision to selfishly put himself first and destroy the trust that employees and customers had put in him, I don't see the company being able to pull out of this in one piece. We all feel deceived, hurt, taken advandage of, and POBB.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the board is serious about keeping this company alive, they need to start communicating with the staff and customers immediately.
