I worked at Macmillan Publishers

Pros

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

Cons

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

Advice to ManagementAdvice

encourage 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

    I worked at Macmillan Publishers

    Pros

    The people I worked with are all very nice and supportive, great office spirit and always happy to help me.

    Cons

    pay and promotion opportunities are very limited. Some employees have been in the same position for 20 years...
    Lack of training opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to staff more to identify opportunities to update and improve day to day operations.
    Offer more training opportunities to staff.

    Not a very productive or exciting company

    I worked at Macmillan Publishers

    Pros

    Kind to staff and generous with time off. Very nice people to work with, lots of socialising, good hours. Lots of people get their own offices.

    Cons

    Not a very productive or exciting company. Very bad location in Basingstoke, on a grim out of town business park next to a lorry depot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Abandon the horrible out of town offices. Stop letting the staff get away with not doing very much work. Have fewer meetings and actually achieve more.
