I have been working at Progressive Business Publications

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Flexible schedule and that is about it.

    Cons

    Inefficient manner of farming/hunting new business, horrible base pay. They hire recent college grads/young people to do their dirt work. Recent college grads want experience, not $$$, which they are keeping for themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that technology is changing and can be useful

    I worked at Progressive Business Publications

    Pros

    The people are fantastic at PBP. They are supportive and helpful and all levels are approachable. It is a great place to work, either to gain experience as a younger worker or if you have the opportunity to come in as a more senior level contributor.

    Cons

    The salaries are on the low side and there is very little room to make large financial gains there. If you do your negotiation on the front end, you will be happy but dont think you will get merit raises for a job well done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not to offer one size fits all benefits. There is a good package but, for example, a strong 401k is not the most important thing to someone just out of college.
