Joining a “Best Place to Work” is only the beginning. Welcome to Progress.
Successful integrations begin with first acquiring like-minded companies sharing similar cultures and company values. And once the acquisition closes, employees of the acquired company become full members of the Progress employee community—known as Progressers. We know it’s a busy time full of change, so we have a cross-functional team of people dedicated to making the integration as smooth as possible.
From our People Team and IT, to Finance and Facilities, our Corporate Development integration professionals know how to rally and make new employees feel welcome. We have processes in place to get questions answered and help acquired people acclimate to being part of Progress.
What we provide:
People power Progress and have since our founding. That’s why we continually evaluate our mix of benefits to ensure we’re meeting our people’s evolving needs. These include:
A rich mix of everything from medical, vision, dental and 401K all the way through to identity theft protection and pet insurance.
Competitive salaries, bonuses and a best-in-class Employee Stock Purchase Program (ESPP).
Flexible paid vacation, holidays, leave and parental leave.
Programs around the world to support employee wellness.
For those not staying long-term with Progress, for whatever reason, we strive to treat each person with dignity and respect, offering support to help create a seamless transition that benefits both the person and the team they’re leaving behind.
Recognition programs employees always feel valued and appreciated.
Career development tools, mentoring, coaching and manager training, so our people always feel like the best years of their work lives happened at Progress.
I found the Progress acquisition process to be very focused on providing a good onboarding experience for employees in transition. The level of guidance and information provided and the value placed on my knowledge and feedback by the leadership team made the transition a very positive one.Angela CampbellDirector, Program Management
Through the acquisition, I saw an opportunity to grow and expand my skill sets. I met amazing colleagues who helped me navigate new processes and systems. And now, I love the team I work with; I feel inspired by them. I hope everyone who comes to Progress through an acquisition knows that they’ll be welcomed here.Fernanda MurilloSenior, Field Marketing Specialist
