Pros

Work with some excellent peers in my group and others, challenging work, with fair compensation.

Cons

Recent re-orgs an

Albany office will be closing, while i expect to be able to continue a HBE, the impact to people I've been working with for years and to the city, where Matthew Bender has had a historical precence is challenging.

Advice to Management

Communication, current organization is not well defined or understood.

    Pros

    Very old, stable, multinational, science, technology, and medicine publishing company that offers excellent benefits and steady employment.

    Cons

    Leadership is not very independent minded and tends to get caught up in trends that cause employee frustrations.

    Advice to Management

    Add more women to senior management and stop being so Dutch.

    Pros

    Good benefits and some perks

    Cons

    Management that is so out of touch with reality and more important, it's employees. People stay for their paycheck and lack of options.
    Constant daily changes with no regard of what employees already do, and they never consult those who do the job to see if even feasible.
    Lower level employees are held accountable for all management decisions. Management is never held accountable.
    If you disagree you're fired.
    No internal advancement, they only load up staff with no opinion staffers.
    No women to upper management. Men rule at all levels.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up! Morale is in the toilet and after all these years I repairable. Don't know anyone, and I've been here 10+ years likes where they work, or would ever speak up because of daily fear drilled into us.
    I'd say listen to your employees....but trust factor left long ago, as was respect.
    Practice your own company values!
