    Pros

    Great company serving a great need in promoting literacy around the globe. Awesome location in SoHo which is a fun and vibrant spot. Great work/life balance and good support from middle management; although it's mixed so it really depends who your immediate supervisor is.

    Cons

    This company is more siloed than many government organizations which is just shocking considering they are a publicly traded company. Ripe for a takeover by any well-run organization, especially with the publishing industry in the midst of another disruptive technology impacting the bottom line.

    Senior management has structured a company that regularly competes with itself. Many projects and services in today's climate cut across multiple departments/groups and the top-heavy hierarchical org structure creates for amazing turf wars that ultimately hurt stock owners. The amount of in-fighting is widespread and intense.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management should read one of Jack Welch's management books - any one of them. OR, better yet, scrap all the high paid executive consultants who can't implement real change because of the human tendency for self-preservation (need to eat and pay rent), and bring on Welch himself because he doesn't care if you take his advice or not.
