    Company seems to have a hard time changing direction with the times, spotty track record for performance reviews, high turn-over with more recent employees.

    I worked at Langenscheidt Publishing Group

    Pros

    The Pro used to be making a quality product that you knew people needed and were willing to pay good money for.

    Cons

    The biggest con was feeling the owners at Langenscheidt did'nt care about you. They let several of their subsidiaries go under rather than make the necessary changes to "modernize" their operations. Ex. ADC was fully capable of transitioning into GIS and GPS digital mapping, but were told to continue with "paper" maps. Naturally when business suffered Langenscheidt's solution was to withhold raises and eventually lay people off. ADC management tried to protect their employees, but their hands were tied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do not feel there is any advice to give to Langenscheidt. They are running the company the way they want. And I feel they wanted to get rid of some of their subsidiaries. Most companies try to stay current and offer relevant products. Langenscheidt didn't do this with ADC.
