Pros

The largest publisher in the world, delivering critical material to science professionals that ultimately helps in discoveries to improve life and living everywhere.

Cons

This applies to the books group only: Heavily matrixed organization, difficult to learn one's way. Systems need work. Change is constant. Sr exec sometimes insults/berates employees publicly and allows an environment for other employees to follow suit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior mgmt (books) needs to show more maturity in group meetings and people management.

    Pros

    Because you can't find a better job, because the economy is so bad that you would rather risk pending layoffs than work fast food. Because you like creating designs for work being outsourced. Because you are afraid to do better

    Cons

    All of the real work is done in India

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell the truth, don't spin. Employees are not as blind as you think.
