    Pros

    People are nice and the vacation time is good

    Cons

    Management don't care about what is going on in their departments. People are overly social and obviously not doing work but that is ok???

    Advice to Management

    That if people don't work, get rid of them and find people who care about their jobs.

    Good hands-on experience, opaque and muddled management

    Pros

    I love the day-to-day of my job here, working on great books

    Cons

    No one department seems to know what the others are doing; annual reviews are frequently skipped, systems are out of date, longtime employees don't believe the company has their interests in mind. You feel very much a cog in a wheel.

    Advice to Management

    Much more collaboration and communication needed across departments, and down from the executive level to the lower levels.
