Collaborative culture. Not ego driven. Great atmosphere for problem-solving in a collaborative environment.
Work-life balance is not good.

Company cares about margins and business performance.
Leadership is tone deaf and not supportive of a diverse workforce.

Company is stable in financial growth with recent acquisitions. Remote Work life balance
We were recently acquired by Progress and sold on "people" are first moto. They came in chopped up the talent and made no real effort to get to know the business units and value. The HR dept is a joke, full of young talent who just refers you to email chains to provide support or advice. The execs are mostly friends of Yogesh who he has brought over from other companies he worked at. It's unfortunate, Progress attempted to state they care so much about the people they acquire and laid on the sweetness so thick which was overdone and then laid off key talent. Pay and benefits Method they laid off teams so unpersonal No real DEI hired token employee to show they are diverse.6Progress Response7mo
Acquisitions are difficult, both for those who leave and those who stay. Effectively merging two businesses is a challenge, and all decisions made are done to position the company and all employees for long-term success. Yet everything we’ve been able to accomplish as a company stems from our culture of inclusion and respect. Our Corporate Social Responsibility Report documents our commitment to living our values. You can view it here: https://www.progress.com/social-responsibility As a current employee, we encourage you to reach out to your People Team business partner to air any concerns. It’s the best way for you to enact meaningful change and be a part of making Progress even better.

remote first culture, decent benefits, decent work life balance
they're acquiring tons of small companies and then firing most of the employees. they lost all the culture that came with the companies before, and it's really just a boys club. 90% of all the teams are cis white men and it shows. it's impossible to get a raise if you aren't that and there's no diversity or inclusion. management is also not shy about their political views and theyre all very conservative.7Progress Response6mo
Acquisitions bring change. And we’re pleased to share that the rumors mentioned in this post are, frankly, not true. The majority of acquired employees stay with Progress post-acquisition, and our inclusive, welcoming culture is well known and cherished by our employees. Our team is also heavily invested in several programs like our Women in STEM scholarship series, which have helped to build a pipeline of diverse, creative leaders, both at Progress and in our community at large. We’re especially proud to say that half of our Progress leadership team and 1/3 of our global population is made up women. In addition, approximately 1/3 of our U.S. population is made up of people of color. Anyone interested in our diversity, equity and inclusion work can find it detailed in our 43-page annual Corporate Social Responsibility Report which details our global commitment to positive change.

Wasn't there long enough to know.

Thanks for your post. While all transitions during acquisition are hard, we were pleased to be able to retain the majority of employees from MarkLogic, as they settle into their new roles and teams as Progressers. While your time with Progress was short, we wish you much success in your next opportunity.
