I have been working at Progress full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

After a few years of changing strategies, Progress has returned to its roots as an innovative application development software company. Recent changes to the senior management team have added a burst of energy and resulted in a solid plan for growth. The company has breathed new life into some legacy products, developed or acquired others, and generated real enthusiasm, both internally and externally. It's an exciting time to be at Progress.

Cons

A few isolated instances of managers who can't agree on strategy or hire the right people -- but such executives are fewer and farther between than in the recent past.

Advice to Management

Just because a strategy worked at another company doesn't automatically mean it will work here. Every company is different. Listen and ask questions.

    Pros

    * Great life and work balance
    * Great benefit package (with exception of CIGNA)
    * Lots of training opportunity available

    Cons

    Currently management treating people with no respect. Management is totally clueless on how to evaluate and review employees performance. Environment focused on favoritism, if there is a personal connection you are in, otherwise management will make your life miserable. Management is expecting you to work loads of hours in your time off. No respect to employees at all.
    Current Employee Satisfaction Survey hit the bottom line with reports of bad management, with employees being threatened and disrespected. Upper management is not concerned about this tactics. Lots of good talents left the company and development is being constantly swapped, causing delays in releases and tons of bugs affecting customers.

    Advice to Management

    Change and review management mentality, otherwise more people and customers will leave the company.
    Take employee satisfaction survey seriously, as people are being disrespected and morale has hit the lower levels ever ... Great company with bad management.
