    I have been working at ProQuest full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The occasional person is nice. Okay as a last resort for new graduates.

    Cons

    I don't make enough to cover the bills. My department has more cliques than a high school and is 1/10 of the size. I keep getting assignments that are new to me but cause me to be yelled at because action wasn't taken years ago. Also I'm working in a basement with no windows; We call it the dungeon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in touch with the cost of living in Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti so we can afford to keep working for. I'm looking for a second job so I can keep my apartment and eat!

    I have been working at ProQuest

    Pros

    Company has respect for your work/life balance. Adequate time-off is give and management is very understanding towards time-off requests. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Company's management is very "top-down." If you are new employee, your voice is not really considered, much less, heard. There is very little room for promotion or advancement, nor is the company very interested in helping you further your career. Promotions are given based solely on seniority, performance, capabilities, and dedication is not considered. Upper management is out of reach, regardless of how hard you work it is not recognized. Sometimes a simple "thank you" would be appreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company could benefit from a more "flat" approach to their leadership. Many of the lower-level employees have ideas on ways make improvements but are not heard.
