    I have been working at Progressive Business Publications full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been able to work with some autonomy and grow the business segments within the realm of my responsibility. My role has not changed, but I have been able to better define the role and increase expectations and results. I enjoy those I work with, am challenged to by the fact there is more I can do to improve processes towards increasing revenue for the company and my division.

    Cons

    Low salary, but have been able to grow income through incentives.

    Pros

    Awesome schedule, will work with anything you have going on: school, kids, appointments and the like. All members of management are approachable... a TRUE open door policy.

    Cons

    Very high turn over, I am fearful if this is the day I will be let go, every day i go in. I am into my fifth week and have seen more than 10 people let go, and even more than that just stop showing up within their first and second week. Sales is difficult and not for everybody. Pay is min wage.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to coach your reps.

    Pros

    There is a sufficient opportunity provided for professional growth, there are impressive philanthropic efforts, and there is an effective use of performance metrics.

    Cons

    The benefits package is sub-par. There is not a designated individual to handle human resources-related questions and particularly questions related to health benefits coverage. This is a major shortcoming.

    Advice to Management

    Designate an assigned individual to communicate with employees regarding human resources issues and benefits-related issues.

    Pros

    Lots of laughs at other people's complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Take the heat for what you do. They always make it someone else fault. They pick a fall guy.
