Very dull

Analyst (Former Employee)
Basingstoke, England (UK)

I worked at Macmillan Publishers

ProsNice and friendly people, supportive work environment, very little pressure, good on working hours for women, flexible on home working

ConsDreadful location in the middle of nowhere, low morale, clunkingly slow to get anything done, very noisy from Sainsbury's depot next door

Advice to Senior Managementencourage staff to be a bit more proactive, have fewer meetings and more getting things done, abandon the Basingstoke office that ressembles a badly built cardboard soap opera set

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
