    I have been working at ProQuest

    Pros

    Good benefits from day one, some very good people that work for the company.

    Cons

    Too many useless process and forms that must be completed that do nothing but delay getting anything done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making empty promises on changes that will be made and start delivering what you say you will. Put the right people that will make things happen in leadership positions instead of yes people

    ProQuest treats you well when there's excess cash, worrisome when they just hit the base goal, or lower.

    I have been working at ProQuest full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    stable company, proper promotion time frame, acquitted pay for surrounding industry, flexible work/family balance.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency in other depts, excessive documentation, large layoffs every 2-3 years, heavy reliance on foreign contractors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adding inexperienced VP's while cutting experienced workforce doesn't help make a company grow healthy. More internal communication is needed. and less reporting.
