Values Driven Company with Opportunity for Impact

Marketer (Current Employee)
Malvern, PA (US)

I have been working at Progressive Business Publications full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI've worked in marketing at the company's headquarters for 3 years. Company has a high performance environment but managers give you the resources and support to succeed. I'm always learning something new and have been given opportunities to attend conferences, trainings, and other outside resources. Upper management challenges you to make an impact, but empowers you to see your ideas through.

PBP is very philanthropic and encourages employees to participate in its mentorship program . I found the program to be incredibly rewarding. Gives you a sense of pride to work with a company that positively impacts the community in so many ways.

ConsIt is a results driven environment. Everyone is held accountable for what they deliver on, so it's not for everybody.

Advice to Senior ManagementBetter coffee!

PBP’s environment encourages you to succeed at your job

Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
Malvern, PA (US)

I have been working at Progressive Business Publications full-time for more than 10 years

Pros- PBP is a meritocracy - if you do well you’re rewarded with more, challenging work that plays to your strengths. As a result, I’ve been able to grow within the company and work with many different divisions which has allowed me to both learn a lot and contribute to the overall growth of the company.
- The People - I’ve never worked with a group of more talented and interesting people. It makes work more enjoyable if you like the people you work with.
- Giving back - PBP doesn’t just give money to non-profit organizations they support, they also encourage their employees to give time during the work day to make a difference in a child’s life by mentoring elementary school children

ConsThe office itself is "tired" looking. I would love to have more access to windows and natural light. And, more parking spaces, too.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Surprised by teamwork

Manager (Current Employee)
Malvern, PA (US)

I have been working at Progressive Business Publications full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat flexibility with work schedule. Accommodating any and all family need and emergencies. Provide an excellent work environment and a casual atmosphere.

ConsPay is not great but the benefits are excellent. Lack of communication on a few issues and the HR department could be better involved with identifying poor performers and working on action plans to improve their performance or moving on.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to be proactive with succession planning
