401K is a 50% match up to 9% and PTO is about 4 weeks a year. They have an employees stock plan where you can purchase discounted shares and is a great deal considering the stock is rather stable and they are now paying dividends.
Progress Software offers great benefits.
15 days PTO with 3 or 5 additional if more than 5 or 10 years with the company. Unlimited sick leave
Great work/life balance is key which Progress has.
Good benefits, ESPP, and 401k
Progress should take a bit more time to consider the salary and commission packages as well as the state of mind of the employees within their newly acquired subsidiaries.
overall a very good benefits package
Progress does offer many good benefits. Work /life balance is not really balanced nor consistent. They have flexible hours, but it seems that they truly are not that flexible. There is someone always watching over your shoulder or at least the perception is there. It seems to be up to the discretion of the manager. For example, some managers allow employees to work from home on a regular basis, for instance work from home every Friday, whereas others allow people to work from home when need to be at home, but not on a regular basis. Progress might think about the commute people endure to get to the office, family needs, etc. and create a schedule that works for everyone, but is consistent and yet creates a productive environment.
Training classes and other professional development programs are tied directly to how current business is going. It is hard to plan for classes if you don't know if it will be approved. This is most likely tied to my department and is not a company wide policy.
salary is too low. overall the benefits or average across the industry.
