    I have been working at Progressive Medical (ohio) full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay
    No weekends
    Benefits start on day one
    Medical, Dental, Vision (VSP), STD, LTD, Life Insurance, FSA, EAP
    Domestic partner benefits
    On-site fitness center
    On-site fitness classes (fee)
    Tuition reimbursement up to $3000/year
    2 weeks vacation to start, 3 weeks at 5 years, 4 weeks at 10 years for non-exempt employees
    401K with match (you put in 6% and they match 3%)
    Employee referral bonus

    Cons

    No paid lunch (9 hour day, 8 hours paid)
    Vacation time accrued instead of given all at once
    Excessive quality assurance requirements
    Strict dress code (no cargo pants, no tennis shoes or Crocs, no t-shirts except for sport/spirit days)
    Upper management out of touch with what the front line employees & supervisors go through in order to do their jobs and maintain QA standards
    Many teams understaffed, therefore high stress levels in most client services positions
    Lack of flexibility with schedule in order to complete school requirements, internships, etc. (Almost zero flexibility. Can take half-hour lunch to leave half-hour early with approval from manager. No other exceptions or allowances).
    "Like it or leave it" mentality in highest levels of upper management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Involve front-line employees in decision-making, whether related to job duties, manual updates, procedural changes or policies.

    I have been working at Progressive Medical (ohio) full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The facility is very nice,most people are friendly

    Cons

    The pay for performance,vacation and days off are all bad news. The pay for performance goals are nearly unreachable, a passing QA score is astonishingly hard to get. Vacation days are earned 1 per month, there are no personal or sick days and you get no rest between calls. The stress level is through the roof most days,constant heavy turnaround in the employees,dissatisfaction throughout.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider easing up on people. You ask way to much from your employees to be paying them so little on top of the constant bashing by QA and stress of unfinished schedules carrying over to the next day.

    Pros

    No nights, weekends, or holidays.

    Cons

    Coming in the door the company neglects to tell you that this is really just another horrible call center job hidden behind a peaceful looking dept. It is all a fake front for how you will be nitpicked to the point of absolute nervousness. Top leadership has no clue how badly they are running this business into the ground and they made it clear they don't care. The only people who are left are people who are desperate for a job and so trapped in their lives that they cannot escape the misery of this place. The frowns on everyone's faces spelled hopeless sadness since all of the good loyal employees walked out of the door without so much as a thank you from leadership for all of their years of loyal work. The new leadership has stripped away any chance of bonus money and now people are doing double the work for next to nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because you run the company does not mean you are any better than hard working people who earn an hourly wage. Greed always comes back to bite leadership and your loyal employees will not be there to cushion the blow.

    Pros

    Steady, interesting work and lots of it. Plenty of room for advancement. Casual dress code. Good coworkers.

    Cons

    Incompetent managers. Left without a supervisor for over a year. The qualifications of the people in QA were a joke. Had to raise my hand and be released by my manager for a bathroom break, even though my job had nothing to do with phone coverage, and god forbid my bathroom break should go over the allotted 5 minutes, otherwise risk an occurrence. Culture was very clique-y and full of high school drama.

    This Is What Happens When A Private Owner Sells Out

    I have been working at Progressive Medical (ohio) full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The great things about this place left when David Biaconi, the man who built the company from the ground up, decided to sell out and hand the baton to StoneRiver. There is nothing good at Progressive now unless you are just looking for a paycheck and are about to be evicted.

    Cons

    When Progressive was sold to StoneRiver we went from bottled to toilet water.

    StoneRiver, having a nearly unchallenged place in their specific market, confused their near-monopolistic success with knowing how to run a business.

    Nearly every senior management position is occupied by the new owners; new positions were even created just to set up StoneRiver managers to be above those at Progressive. If you buy a successful business maybe your goal shouldn't be to replace everyone running the place. The friends & family atmosphere that previously existed has been replaced with "you should consider yourself lucky to work here".

    The co-ceo's, Tommy Young and Emry Sisson express nothing but contempt for both the current employees and past culture and values that once made Progressive a great place to work. Employer 401k contributions are a joke, health care costs, always controlled under old management, continue to go up, vacation benefits have been changed, monthly/quarterly/yearly bonuses are all gone, and no increases in pay unless you are labeled an 'exceptional performer', which of course is a title earned by butt kissing. "Did the company make more money last year? Than why am I not?"

    If you work as a salaried employee, plan on working far past your 40, because for every 2 people that resign (aka realize StoneRiver is full of awful people) only 1 person is hired. If you are an hourly employee, enjoy the pay for performance; it will add incredible amounts of stress to your life.

    Stay away. This place, once an amazing tribute to "I *DID* build this", has degenerated into a cash cow for the owners and they will do the absolute minimum for their employees to keep the doors open.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look over the numbers of experienced employees who have resigned in the last few years. Allow this to process slowly in your tiny brains, and then realize that MAYBE YOU ARE DOING SOMETHING WRONG.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    for as much stress as this job comes with you should really consider paying your staff more money and maybe your turnover rate will improve

    Pros

    On-site cafe, workout facility, close to home. Was able to assist me with making a career change after working there.

    Cons

    Company was purchased last January. Since this purchase, quite a few C-level people were let go - including the President/CEO, several supervisors dismissed, and overall morale has declined. With all the changes, several management/directors have been shifted around and placed into positions of supervision where they are failing miserably. Common practice is to play very blatant favoritism, take credit for work done by someone else and to turn heads when it comes to specific Ohio laws with licenses. Understand the price of doing business, but missing some major problems with directors, managers, and supervisors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is costly to continually lose employees - financially and moral-wise. Recommend remembering and identifying what makes a good company to the employees, as they are the ones that support the business and carry your name out into the public. Hire people in positions of management that have a clue what it means to make a team cohesive.
