    Pros

    CEO staff is very approachable and grounded with respect to the world around us High transparency Great people

    Cons

    We run "lean"...I've learned to generally see this as a "pro" as it avoids layoffs in times of economic uncertainty and ensures there's plenty of work to go around.

    I have been working at Progress full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Management / Corporate engagement with the employee's success. Great core social values (CSR, Diversity and Inclusion); many women in leadership and executive roles. Investment in employee development (training and education). AMAZING Covid-response to unexpected challenges. Every venue to assist employees in this trying time was inspected and I've felt so supported by my company during this difficult time (especially with a young child and needing the ability to flex-schedule).

    Cons

    Growing pains as we work to streamline processes cross-organizationally. Will get there. WIP.

    I worked at Progress full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Interdepartment transfers are easy. Technology is pretty good.

    Cons

    Primary product (90% of company income) is relegated to the back of the shelf by current management, and it shows. Used to be a great place to work, but they lost their way over the last 10-15 years and now it's just a job. Current CEO thinks in buzzwords and flash and is out of step with both the company's history and legacy and the industry's real direction.

    I have been working at Progress full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are a lot of good people here, they are smart, bright and eager.

    Cons

    Management is out of touch, and often do not know the services that are being offered. Managers regularly tell their teams "that's not my job, or above my paygrade" when asked for direction Products are rolled out without any training to customer facing teams. Sales teams sell products that they know are faulty and insecure They manage by survey, and struggle to get workplace of the year in the US, pressuring us to nominate them. Acquiring companies is not a growth strategy when you do not know what you're acquiring.. Training is done from Russia. Via mass tele conference For a software company they do not know how to manage software implementation and migration in house. CEO comes off as insincere are dishonest and Directors and above do not seem to care about their individual contributors

    I have been working at Progress full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This job has allowed me to grow the most in my career, the opportunities for learning have been endless in my role and within marketing. Progress is family friendly and supports its employees. Progress is a big company but I still feel that my opinion is valued and matters.

    Cons

    While I think overall Progress operates really well there are some miss alignment between teams that causes slow downs but these do tend to get addressed quickly.
