Technical Support Intern (Former Employee) – Bedford, MA – April 28, 2015
The team I joined has been together for over a decade. Everyone was extremely friendly, personable, and full of knowledge. I never ran out of things to do, and was put in a great spot with the sun rolling in the windows daily.
Typical day consisted of an immediate starting of my work after getting to Progress; often people would have their coffee and breakfast before starting up. We would work, break for lunch, and had weekly team meetings as well as weekly personal evaluations. I always felt challenged and comfortable, learning a lot about Databases, Progress' ABL, and SQL.
Management was friendly, yet stern. Although intimidating, they provided extremely useful feedback and helped me continue on my co-op despite limited time.
My co-workers were amazing; everyone was available to help and everyone was friendly with each other. There was no negativity, and I was always met with a friendly greeting in the office.
The hardest part of the job was hands down acclimating myself to Progress's many products, and their technical specifics.
I really enjoyed almost everything about working there, and had a lot of fun.
Progress Software was a great company to work for. They had fun family events.

Presales Technical Support Engineer (Former Employee) – Bedford, MA – December 15, 2011
I worked at Progress Software in MA - I was my best job todate! I used all my technical support skills, programming, sales, technical training, and online customer support. It was intense pressure and I loved it ... I was an outstanding employee -- and was only laid off because of 9/11 - the entire company was downsized.
