    I have been working at Progress full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Work/Life Balance
    -Award Incentives
    -Company Lunches
    -On Premise Gym
    -Casual Attire

    There is always an opportunity to expand knowledge on products and the industry. Stay committed to getting things done every day, and your hard work will be rewarded. Managers take notice of goal achievement, and offer valuable feedback to improve performance. It's a team environment. When hurdles arise, the issues are addressed in order to move forward. I enjoy coming to work everyday, and appreciate and respect my colleagues.

    Cons

    Changes in general processes and systems. If you're prepared and open to change, then this should be a non-issue. Take it as an opportunity to expand your knowledge.

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Positive atmosphere. My manager is a great leader and manager. Not micromanaged -- given the goals and told to go get them.

    Cons

    Standard "big company" struggles -- but they recently restructured in an effort to be more lean and agile, which I fully endorse.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at Progress full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have worked at Progress for 10+ years in a field sales role. At one point, I left Progress for a few years and then came back. Many co-workers have done the same, looking for greener grass and then realizing that the Progress grass was already pretty green.

    Cons

    Every few years there is a complete overhaul in executive management (all the way to the CEO level) and with it a complete change in strategy. I have always looked at the change as an opportunity to meet new people and learn new products and markets. But it can certainly be distracting and even a little unsettling.

    I worked at Progress full-time

    Pros

    The people were wonderful and Progress had some great benefits for the employees.

    Cons

    Lack of direction from the c-level people. Many acquisitions without a clear thought as to how those acquisitions would benefit the company in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees! You're new to the company... while many of your employees have been there for a long time. Your current employees have some great ideas and advice for the future of the company - they have a vested interest in seeing Progress succeed.

    I worked at Progress full-time

    Pros

    The employees at Progress, including the managers for which I worked, care about the company and each other greatly. I always felt as if we were there for each other, working toward a common goal. The company was generous with its benefits, as well, making it a good place to work.

    Cons

    The company seems to change visions and strategies too often. I believe that most employees don't have faith in the company leadership when these changes occur. While I understand the need to keep the shareholders and Board of Directors happy, this sometimes occurred at the expense of keeping the employees satisfied and motivated. The constant changes cause confusion and unease within the employee population.

    Advice to Management

    Find a direction and stick with it for more than a year.
