    Pros

    Globe Pequot Press, which owns Lyons Press, GPP, Falcon Guides, Two Dot, is made up of a very good bunch of people who oversee lots of talent and great brands. People worked hard and created great books, but in addition to uncertain management, sales was always a problem.

    Cons

    Under Morris Communications, management was weak and indecisive. With new owners, Rowman & Littlefield, management seems a bit overbearing and demanding. Everybody, from the lowest level to the managers feel burdened with rigid new procedures and lots of paperwork. Hopefully a livable balance will develop between the procedures and rules R&L has developed as owners of many tiny publishing companies and what needs to happen with this largest-by-far of their acquisitions, which won't necessarily flourish under rules created for companies of one or two people.

    Advice to Management

    Ease up and get to know the employees as people/individuals.

    Pros

    Great town setting, often room for one to contribute towards operations and the way things work. PLENTY of room to take initiative in the company! The nice thing is that if you have a great idea, it is often recognized and adopted...if there's a venue for you to express it. If you need training and nurturing, it might not be the place for you. A good place for publishing professionals with experience-you can contribute a lot to the output of the company.

    Cons

    -Lack of structure, leadership and trainging in some departments
    -Very little redundancy in positions...don't expect anyone to cover for you
    -Busy, busy! Feel-good employee celebrations or perks are few and far between

    Advice to Management

    Well, leadership would be great! More hands in operations, manufacturing, warehouse management, keeping popular books in stock would really help. There's a lot of talent at the company...be sure to include them in decision-making!
