Great products but very troubled company because of highly leveraged purchase from Thomson and poor product decisions

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Farmington Hills, MI

ProsBest in class products, industry leadership in the library reference space and some niche areas on the textbook side.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
