I worked at Progressive Business Publications full-time (less than a year)

Pros

None come to mind, none.

Cons

Being talked to like your a special needs child just because you can't get small businesses to agree to a free trial of their horrible newsletters.

    Pros

    Pros? If you still have a job.

    Cons

    The owner is trashing this company to keep feeding the black hole that is supposed to "his legacy." This includes senseless cost-cutting and ill-informed decision-making. It's almost funny because the owner has his mantra: "There are no good companies, just good people" -- and then proceeded to lay off several good people due to their salaries, and retained less-skilled people because they are cheaper. In the meantime, the few remaining senior people are being crushed under the workload. But they see how the laid-off people have fared (terribly), so they're willing to tolerate the abuse. It's a sad, bad situation. And it's a shame to watch a company that was so energetically and ideally built eat itself from within, on the whims of one man.

    I have been working at Progressive Business Publications full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Schedule, Holidays Off, Performance-Based Pay, Growth/Development Potential, very little politics.

    Cons

    Equipment/Technology needs updated. Some physical work-space/office updates (cosmetic) also could be helpful.
