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

    Pros

    Strong core of long-time employees who are very dedicated to their products and customers. Good work-life balance: there are periods of exceptions but generally not a place that over works employees. Recent acquisitions have allowed Progress to restart many employee engagement initiatives (from offsite team events to good t-shirts and SWAG)

    Cons

    Corporate strategy "rethink" and reorganizations happen annually. Hard to know who to talk to when you have a problem. Hard to know when a decision is final, or is subject to "rethinking" after reorganizations. Lack of accountability on big and small decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in Progress' legacy business directly. Don't start projects and initiatives without proper funding. Finish what you start.

    I worked at Progress full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Good work and life balance with WFH days
    - Benefits are just fine
    - Stable job for the people settled for long-time

    Cons

    - Flat revenues
    - Same old products, no innovation and no focus
    - Management talks more about the new products and none of them made $$$
    - No encouragement for new ideas
    - Fat travel budget

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to come up with new ideas and new sparks. Sparks in words are not enough.
