Pros

Opportunities to learn, grow and work hard. Good benefits and commission structure.

Cons

Lots of change management happened in the 7 years I was there. Some positions were filled by people would were in over their heads, while others with better skills were overlooked.

Advice to Management

Sales field needed to be more regularly evaluated and upgraded, retrained.

    Pros

    Education publishing has good use and purpose in society. MGH had favorable work and life balance. Great convenient locations in city. Friendly faces, many who have worked with company for years.

    Cons

    The norm are management changes who hire and promote their own employees that they brought in. Culture changed significantly. No longer fun, everyone on their tippy toes.

    Pros

    Work / life balance, decent pay.

    Cons

    Constant, directionless change. There is no time to perfect a plan of action before moving on to the next failed idea. Too driven to be "first" rather than deliver a stable, quality product. Forecasts for sales and usage less accurate than a TV weatherman, leading to repeated crashes due to server issues. Politics more valued than knowledge capital, forcing those who could improve service out the door, while rewarding "yes" men who lack any sense of the products offered or the service required to support them. HR (now outsourced mostly) turns a blind eye to multiple violations by management, rewarding them rather than addressing them.

    Advice to Management

    Stop rewarding HR violators and sycophants, and actually listen to rank and file employees. End the culture of cronyism, and return to a meritocracy.
