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.

ConsToo much debt and bad management decisions have caused a major upheaval. Constant reorganization starting in 2010 left many good employees jobless while, for the most part, the upper-middle management folks have snaked their way into new positions within the company. Just because you claim to be a "digital" company doesn't make it so.

Advice to Senior ManagementDeclare Bankruptcy, sell off the profitable divisions that have strong reoccurring revenue to companies that can maximize their potential

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