Pros

Great brand, loyal customers, good legacy products and good co-workers.

Cons

Slow to build innovative products. Too long to integrate acquisitions. Growth expectations for sales are unrealistic.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More realistic growth targets. Reward reps for multi-year growth. Integrate all products. Reach out to the field for product improvements. Be innovator not reactor.

    Interesting work, great co-workers, but fear of job loss is the primary motivator applied by management

    Pros

    Work can be very interesting and many co-workers are top notch people. A 167 year old company with huge potential and a leadership position in business content gives you an edge in the marketplace.

    Cons

    Short term focus; management by fear and decree; a decline in content quality caused by an almost solely automated content quality measurement process designed to tell management what they want to hear. The anwers you get depend on the way you ask the question; not necessarily the way clients experience the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on long-term and people not just quarterly earnings. Recent happenings in the market show what happens when you don't think ahead and when you don't value the people who make you the money.

    Pros

    High caliber people... slightly aggresive management. That makes a good opportunity to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Work life balance was not as good at that time... do not know how it is now.... hopefully better :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more realistic
