Nice people, interesting work, but senior managers can get very teritorial and political quickly.

I worked at CAS full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The products and the people doing the work. Pay is pretty good too. Location is also a positive. The work place atmosphere feels like being at a university, without the low pay.

Cons

Senior managers are very teritorial and some agressively protect their turf. It can also get very political so you need to all too often consider the implcation of what you are doing and/or asking.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Use the vast assest and resources you have to bring out some new and revolutionary products. Just as STN and Scifinder where when they first launched.

    Micro-managed company that is strangled by inability to make decisions.

    Pros

    Excellent salaries and benefits. Good work life and family considerations. Employess are friendly, helpful and support each other with many long term (25 year +) staff.

    Cons

    The company is micro-managed to the maximum from the top down. Management is not permitted to utilize their experience and background to make even the smallest desicision without upper management approval. Overall their business model and services are in a declining market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the recommendations of staff and front line management instead of just giving it lip service.
