    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at BioMed Central full-time (More than 3 years)


    A very friendly and relaxed working environment. Given considerable autonomy by management - basically, they trust us to do our jobs. Junior management are very approachable and sympathetic to difficulties of job. In general, the company is genuinely committed to doing the right things by our authors and I do believe are one of the good guys of the science publishing world.


    Low starting salary, considerably less than all our competitors for equivalent positions. Workload is somewhat insane - basically you will need to be able to accept that fulfilling all of your responsibilities as well as you would like is impossible. Some HR aspects very poor - e.g. no official bereavement policy, this seems to be entirely down to whims of individual managers.

    Advice to Management

    Recognise that you are no longer a small, scrappy start-up, but a major international publisher (that's even without the SpringerNature connection); you need to accept the need to pay competitive salaries and professionalise the more amateur aspects of the company (e.g. internal communications, HR).
