    I worked at ANSR Source full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The regular employees are great. Some of the middle management are incompetent and only got their jobs because they joined in the early days. The top management are a joke. They cut costs at every corner and the people who bear the brunt of this is the regular employees who are the people keeping this company alive in the first place. Everything that used to be fun about the place has been removed to save costs, and... the time per project is inhuman (and inhumane) just for the MD to brag that they give their clients "competitive prices". If you want a year's experience so that you can then move on to a better job, go for it. If you're looking to grow as a professional, this is not the place for it.

    Cons

    Top management and HR are either oblivious of how they are ruining this company, or they don't realise what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Look after the real asset of the company, the authors and editors who keep the place going.

    Pros

    Free Lunch. Large repository of reading material from all academic fields. Stop-gap for those interested in higher studies, or exams.

    Cons

    Your experience may be invalidated when trying to look for a mainstream job. It is due to the niche nature of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Position yourself as a serious creator of academic content. Pay young graduates fairly by transferring some of that surplus to them. Don't waste on toilet paper, and control your office politics.

    Pros

    The company has a great work culture. Almost everyone is dedicated to the work they do and so it is easy to collaborate with such passionate people. They provide enough on-the-job training to ensure everyone has the skills to efficiently complete their work.

    Cons

    The work can get monotonous at times. Also, promotions and appraisals are not always very promising.

    Pros

    Pays the bills, I guess

    Cons

    Incompetent managers Unrealistic deadlines Lack of empathy towards employees

    Advice to Management

    Please make sure you appoint managers based on their ability to manage people and not their ability to do basic math. The last 8-9 months has seen you lose some of your best employees you've had all because of bad managerial decisions. Please address the jarringly obvious power struggle between managers. It seems to be causing them to lash out at the team members they are managing. Your authors and reviewers are... the reason ANSR has been around for over a decade and management has successfully pissed off almost every single one of them.
