    I have been working at ProQuest full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Collegiate atmosphere, reasonable office, laid back working conditions and generally nice people. There are some interesting projects and for a junior there is opportunity to take on responsibility and progress.

    Cons

    Over the course of the last ten years there has been a lot of restructuring and cost-cutting which has dented the enthusiasm of some of the shop floor staff. Developers have been promoted on the basis of ambition not ability leading to some bad technical decisions being made by individuals carrying more technical responsibility than they are really capable of dealing with. Salaries are only okay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Identify who is working and who is coasting. Treat effective staff better and realise who's bringing in the real revenue.

    I worked at ProQuest

    Pros

    Overseas group is fantastic. Good people, opportunities to make a difference. Management will allow creative thinking although not always acting on suggestions made.

    Cons

    Senior management too far away from workers and what's going on in company. Fear factor among middle management (afraid to admit to anything negative; blame shifting, etc.).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to the business and people who do the work to find out what is wrong and to hear intelligent suggestions on how to improve the business.
