Chamchagiri Company

Manager (Former Employee)
Hyderābād (India)

I worked at Progressive Digital Media full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSalary in time
Work life balance
New technologies and processes - if you are energetic, enthusiastic and willing to learn.

Cons'Chamchagiri' company where under performers will get promotions, hikes and awards for gossiping and time passing in canteen.
30% attrition rate.
'Govt company' environment for managers who will just pass away their time till the company closes. Won't get job anywhere else.
HR dept knows nothing.
Finance dept knows nothing.
UK totally depends on Hyd, and treats employees like It's British Raj in connivance with traitorous management who look after their own selfish financial needs.
Financial misappropriation in crores, happened twice where first obscured and then finally, COO was fired.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe upfront and honest to employees. Treat long time employees well.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Do not waste your time

Sales Executive (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at Progressive Digital Media full-time for less than a year

ProsGreat atmosphere, I guess I was lucky to be in a great team. It is a great place to kick-start your career in sales, to cut your teeth on, but don't bother staying too long. Money can be great if you are ready to give up 8/9 hours of your day to lead-source outside of work hours.

ConsHigh turnover, highly KPIs-focused, no career progression, Money is not good at all.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop treating staff like robots, pay more.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Dirty office, marxist leadership, short-term vision and profit obsessed.

Sales Executive (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at Progressive Digital Media full-time for less than a year

ProsQuite compassionate when it comes to personal affairs. Accept you need time off but only when you are earning the company good money.

ConsEmployees are the equivalent of battery hens. Expect sweat shop conditions, back smacking, clicking in your ears and indirect insults. Unrealistic expectations placed on staff. Uncomfortable and unethical environment.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Ok place to start work

Sales Executive (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at Progressive Digital Media full-time for more than a year

ProsCommission based work means you develop a strong work ethic and an eye for sales. Some very effective sales people around who are good to learn from.

ConsPretty awful sales environment. Very aggressive and focussed on KPIs. Senior staff can be very aggressive if you're not meeting your KPIs. Environment can change from pleasant to unpleasant very quickly indeed!

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure that everything you force your employees to do is honest!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
