Advice to Management

Upper management is in a place to really affect change and should seek out the opinions of successful individual contributors. Many times the manager is contacted but for the most part we are successful in spite of the constant need of reports, documentation, and job justification.

    Care more about results and less about face time

    Pros

    Decent benefits package and it's in a nice building.

    Cons

    Management style is dated. You would think a company that publishes business/management books would take some of its own authors' advice and care more about results and less about being "seen".

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the past. You won't retain talent with a 1950's mentality that demoralizes and creates of culture of mistrust in your teams.

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for and raise a family. The hours are flexible and the benefits are great. The work was rewarding knowing we were striving to create top notch educational materials. My supervisors were excellent. They assigned and trusted me to get the work done.

    Cons

    The pay wasn't amazing and raises were very small. The company is struggling a bit to transition and balance print materials with the new internet age.

    Advice to Management

    Empower the various departments to make decisions and be experts in their areas of expertise. The arduous approval processes up the chain can really slow the company down. This kind of responsibility also makes employees vested in their jobs and take real ownership.
