    I have been working at Progressive Business Publications full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best part of PBP is that everyone is always open to new ideas and the management team is constantly looking for growth opportunities.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is that sometimes there is not good teamwork between departments. At times there can be a "silo" approach or mentality to each business unit.

    Advice to Management

    PBP has a very good benefits program including profit sharing and 401k, so hopefully all that continues.

    Pros

    PBP focuses on playing to the strengths of their employees - recognizing that you're going to be better if you like what you're doing. It is a collegial atmosphere where people work hard but have fun. It's a particularly good company for new college graduates (or interns) as you are given real, meaningful work to do right away.

    Cons

    While PBP is a meritocracy and rewards employees who do well with more challenging work (which is good) there is not a lot of turnover so it can be difficult to move up.

    Pros

    The people are great at PBP--a true team environment where everyone is willing to help you succeed. They are an intelligent, motivated group of people focused on serving customers and moving the company forward. PBP values it's employees and creates opportunities for them to grow.

    Cons

    They could move to a PTO system and be a little more transparent across departments.

    Advice to Management

    Please be more transparent about the position of the company...it's just good to know.

    Great job stability, and they always plan for the long-term...hierarchy is very minimal, all voices are heard and they encourage new thoughts and creative ideas from all employees. Great opportunities to interact and share ideas with other departments; Benefits are top-notch

    I have been working at Progressive Business Publications full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company truly believes in the people it hires for the long-term. Lots of latitude with support to get the job done. Results and contribution are valued over pedigree and title. Candor and innovation are expected and rewarded eliminating any barriers to success and growth.

    Cons

    Silo-ed organization and informal structure can create some lags in efficiency and best practice adoption. ON a personal level, the cons don't get in the way ...

    Pros

    Expectations are clear -- performance is rewarded. If you are struggling, there is plenty of help available -- you just need to ask. There's a good balance between hard work and socializing. Senior management encourages learning and development both inside and outside the office, and the benefits package is generous, even if the starting salaries are somewhat low for certain positions.

    Cons

    Technology has not always kept pace with growth.


  9. Awesome work culture! This company really supports both personal and professional development.

    Pros

    In addition to the flexible work schedule, competitive pay, and opportunities for advancement- PBP's core values facilitate an environment I'm proud to be a part of.

    Cons

    Because of the flexibility of the work schedule you have to be self managed. For some, this can different and challenging from what they are used to.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
