Bad career choice

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Malvern, PA (US)

I worked at Progressive Business Publications

ProsAccommodating to individual schedules, casual dress code, unlikely to be fired

ConsNo career growth, flat organization with high paid managers prevent opportunities to move up, no raises, money invested in new ideas and often failed due to poor planning, overpaid managers in failing divisions, underpaid employees in successful divisions.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit paying executives to work for one year at the highest salary and then leave. Reward company loyalty and plan your future. Get ahead of the industry curve instead of dragging your feet. Don't be so stingy with employee salaries so you're not scraping the bottom of the barrel for talent.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
