Overall great firm

Human Resources Manager (Former Employee) Washington, DC

ProsGreat team of co-workers. Industry best publications. Great employee benefits program and overall a great place to work - just need to not let the upper level management in the dam get to you.

ConsC level out of touch with business unit strategies and needs. Diabolical cost cutting measures with almost continuous hiring freezes or delays that affected product quality.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow the individual in the business unit more scope for input into products and pubs. Also stop the "across the baord" hiring freezes.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
