    Pros

    Work life balance and nothing else

    Cons

    where do I start... I can't call this as a company because people gets selected are not just based on talent, based on connections and family relations. It's more likely a family business for many Managers and Heads especially.
    If you are smart and talented just quit the company because only politicians get promoted here. Distribution wing what can I say... better not to talk about it

    Advice to Management

    Stop selling crap and concentrate on Quality and Renewals. Start hiring smart people who can get results, not their race

    I worked at Progressive Digital Media full-time

    Pros

    The people (colleagues) were nice and the office was in a good location.

    Cons

    I would everyday go to work hoping that the tube would derail - not to die, just be incapacitated for a few weeks to avoid going into progressive digital media.

    We were selling questionable data, expected to work 8am - 6pm just to fit in the minimum 80 cold calls per day and then likely stay late as we were expected to do our own lead generation on top of this.

    Advice to Management

    Advertise the job for what it is and be realistic with your expectations of employees.

    I worked at Progressive Digital Media full-time

    Pros

    Interview was very easy, I assume because they don't really care who works there

    Cons

    The company is selling, frankly, crap. And they know they are. So you have to lie to sell the crap, provided with figures you know full well are entirely invented. You're put under a lot of pressure to extend these lies to law-breaking, as you literally stand there all day cold calling people who have never heard of your 'market leading publication' that's supposed to be in THEIR industry!

    The money's pretty terrible, too. For what they claimed is a graduate job, the salary is frankly shocking. the bonus structure is hardly enough to live on, especially in London. the 8am starts or occasional 8pm finishes are not worth it, especially when you consider the crap-hold of an office you're in.

    It seems pretty clear they're taking advantage of graduates for a reason; graduates don't realise that being paid so little to basically cold call people isn't normal.

    Advice to Management

    Complete overhaul, of staff, techniques, and products.

    The people are good fun which is the only positive thing about this place
