They offer a great benefits package, paying for full health and dental of all employees. The PTO policy is pretty good and they are flexible with some needing an altered work schedule. The CEO is doing a good job of trying to motivate the employees and I feel he truely does care about the thoughts and feelings of the workers.
Very hard to grow and advance in this company. The head of one department is too much of a ruler, only allowing growth in those that they like. Too much of their history in their career development is used to base whether they feel someone is ready for something, not that persons actual performance. If they weren't ready to take something on at that age, how could anyone else be, right? Only those that can be manipulated and molded will do well in their realm. I also feel that they are also big on employing those with little to know experience because they are easy to manipulate but then throw them into situations that require some experience to test if they can float. Being set up to fail seems like a constant theme. Oh, and don't even think of talking to anyone about anything without their knowledge, especially the CEO. At times I'm afraid to be around him in a social setting for fear I'll say something that might be deemed below his level or unfiltered.
Advice to Management
Listen to and trust your employees. They are the one's doing the research and working hard to do the best they can provide. Why do you treat them as little kids that don't know anything? Why must they ask permission to do anything? I feel like we can't create anything without everyone in the building and outside signing off that we've done it right.
I applied online. I interviewed at Progressive International.
First contact was by phone, did a face to face interview which took about 30 minutes.I was then called back for another interview which took about 45 minutes. They were nice and friendly. There was a lot of laughter and we got along quite well. I never heard back from HR until weeks later which was extremely frustrating and surprising. They seemed to take an incredibly long time to make a decision.
