    Get into the "Old Company Clique" or run for it.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Develops the "you're on your own with no budget resourcefulness skill set". Whilst it sucks during the hardship, once you get out to a decent company you may weirdly appreciate some of this which will rub off on you eventually.

    Cons

    Company treats people like a commodity. If you're in Sales and have the right cut throat attitude you will do well and be looked after. If you were part of the old data monitor clique you also will do well unless you royally mess up and don't have a sacrificial lamb to hand when the "proverbial hits". If you don't fit into these categories look elsewhere unless you're desperate for work.

    Advice to Management

    There is an irony in putting anything here as fundamentally senior management simply don't engage the tactical staff unless something monumentally goes wrong which forces them to mix with the lowly peons.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Progressive Digital Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good commission structure - Fun incentives

    Cons

    - Dirty offices - Unethical business practices - Sweat shop environment / long work hours - Stressful work environment, continuous micro management - Staff undervalued - No room for internal promotion or growth - No kitchen facilities (If you want coffee/tea, purchase from company canteen)

    Advice to Management

    Downsize your sales force, sack the slackers, employ professionals on better salaries and treat your employees like human beings and not robots. You will be surprised by the results. Company products (digital magazines/websites) need to deliver results. Put some money behind marketing your products! Employees are encouraged to misrepresent, grab the money and run! This is wholly unethical and not something you would expect from a company of this size. Open up a kitchen facility so that your employees can make their own tea/coffee. Bring in professional cleaners as the offices are filthy. Carpeting looks like its not been cleaned in 20 years.

    Pros

    + Employs recent graduates + Young company with social activities

    Cons

    - Little or no opportunities to be promoted - Money focused company, do not invest in their employees - Hierarchical - Low salary (no annual reviews or opportunities for an salary increase) - No work / life balance (expect employees to work 12 hours each day without any benefits) - Teams understaffed in some departments - Say that they encourage creativity but everything comes from top managers. What they say you have to do.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees, it will benefit the company in the long run. If an employee care about the company for which they work for they will perform better and stay in the company longer than one year. This way they will develop their internal knowledge and also be able to help develop the company further.
