    Pros

    If you are looking for a decent base salary and a "chance" to make quota and get paid $240,000, Progress might be a great place for you.

    Cons

    If you are a hunter and looking to over achieve quota and make $400-500k (or more), Progress is not the place for you. The accelerators for over achievement are not in line with market norms.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at the sales compensation plan if you want to attract "A" player talent that will over achieve their quotas.

    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 Management

    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
