    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    flexible work schedule and the ability to get benefits and vacation after 6 mo probationary period. "state of the art facility"

    Cons

    Inept management who really only care about their own careers, not yours. There is absolutely no product training to speak of and their only concern is that you are indoctrinated on the history of their owner and his exploits. benefit package is meager at best and it appears they only want you to invest in their 401k so that upper management can get fat before they fire you.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to school and learn how to run a business properly in the 21st century. The employees and clients alike are on to you and are not as "green" as you would like to assume.

    Pros

    Benefits and paid time off... Thats about it.

    Cons

    High school gossip all over the place. Mice infestation, period blood all over the bathroom floors and dust about half an inch thick above the cubicles. They tried to clean up a bathroom flooding by putting a fan on the carpet to dry it up... about a year later and this patch still smells of mold. The supervisors and managers are literally in meetings from 9-5 so there is no direction. Whenever asked for direction you are almost shut down and told to figure it out... You are paid a terrible salary while preforming your best. They say they are not bureaucratic, but they are nothing but. If you are not directly making the company money you are expendable during budget cuts (does not matter your position). Employee turnover rate is horrific.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and be more available to your employees. Knock off the buying of email lists and spamming thousands of peoples inboxes.

    I have been working at Progressive Business Publications part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can set your own hours as long as you work at least 50 hours

    Cons

    Very little pet hour and hardly any compensation for the amount of subscriptions sold.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to not take advantage of people that have a good selling advantage and compensate them properly.

    Employees can set their own hours each week as long as they work about 25 hours each week (correcting 50 stated in review). Nearly 50% of our workforce have been with the company 5 years or longer as ... More
