    I have been working at Author Solutions

    Pros

    So far I've gotten a paycheck on schedule. That's about the only good thing left. We used to have good benefits, but have recently been purchased, and it appears the new owners are trying to get all production employees to leave.

    Cons

    unannounced mass lay off, no consideration of the number of years you have faithfully worked for this company or your actual job performance. They let 10+ year employees go, while keeping people that have been here less than 6 months, makes me think they wanted to keep the cheaper folks. I could understand lay offs if we were not making money, but they are moving production jobs to the Philippines to boost their profits...

    Advice to Management

    If you don't really want us to leave, you certainly have an odd way of showing it. Get a real Human Resources department. Human Resources, that means you are there to help the humans in some way, you know - answer questions, assist us with benefits, etc. Read a business book, it has been well documented that a work force that feels valued produces better for a company. Clean the parking lot and front entrance.
