Pros

Great people, Excellent HR Department, good building, good benefits

Cons

Morale has declined as a company over the years, largely due to layoffs. Management higher up could use some help, though I hear that's in the works. Was also underpaid

Advice to Management

Don't lose sight of your employee's needs and morale while focusing on fixing the company

    Pros

    Decent base pay w/ good incentive compensation if you make your number. Great benefits package...sales reps get a car w/ maintenance and gas all paid for, along with medical, 401(k), etc. Very competitive textbook offerings in most disciplines.

    Cons

    Too many different technology offerings with no consistent brand. Financially unstable, which has lead to mass layoffs. Long and non-traditional hours, so lots of nights and weekends make it hard to get that work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Reinvent yourself by changing the business model. Trying to convert everything from print to digital offerings is only half the battle. Need to market and sell directly to students.
