    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Oxford University Press full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Casual work environment; brand recognition; location; office design; flexible hours; work from home flexibility

    Cons

    Extreme silo-ing of different divisions, in particular a hard wall between marketing and editorial; stratification and gender homogeneity at executive level, with little to no communication from on high

    Advice to Management

    Put marketing and editorial under the same umbrella; stop with the "global" efforts.
