Great start to a post-college career, not much room to grow

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Malvern, PA

I worked at Progressive Business Publications

ProsTaking a position at Progressive Business Publications after college is a very wise decision - You learn a lot about marketing and the corporate world. Management does encourage you to do well and the bonus structure is good if you're a high performer. It's a great resume builder and you can take advantage of many opportunities. They have corporate boxes in many Philadelphia sports arenas which are a great perk.

ConsThe salary is low (and although there's 'advancement' opportunities, it typically is minimal during review) and the benefits are weak compared to similar companies. The health insurance, PTO (vacation and sick leave) and snow day policy do not reward employees. The entire business model is based around hiring new college graduates, making money and then replacing the crop once they've moved on.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your employees and reward them appropriately with salary and benefits. Also, look for long-term solutions to grow the business.
