    I have been working at Progressive Business Publications full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very friendly, dedicated employees who work to help the co. keep moving forward with key initiatives.
    Strong values and pleasant environment. Reasonable work hours.
    New initiatives in progress to take PBP to the next decade.
    Good mix of long term and newer employees.
    Managers for most part want to hear your ideas, and they don't micromanage.

    Cons

    Time off too low. More employees should be able to work from home, at least part of the week.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more and talk less. Need much faster progress using varied, up-to-date marketing methods. Better support sr managers who have good ideas to grow business.

    I have been working at Progressive Business Publications full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a flexible environment and the people are good to work with. The managers have helped me develop as a writer and researcher, and they're supportive. As a writer/editor, you're also given a lot of autonomy and chance to be creative.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps focus more on retaining employees that are performing well.

    Pros

    Great people to work with; a great deal of autonomy allowing you to share your ideas and collaborate with others; currently involved in a phase which brings employees from various divisions together to discuss and share ideas with each other; great leadership; good benefits; employee appreciation events

    Salary could be higher; also working with older outdated software systems which at times prevent us from performing and providing above average customer service

    Advice to Management

    Continue to implement collaboration amongst the various departments so that we can gain new ideas, new ways to be successful in our jobs; continuous training sessions; need to improve the technology so we can do our jobs more efficiently
