    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Macmillan Education full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent salary, but you can get more elsewhere if you are good. Good for nine-to-fivers. No one is required to work hard. People are generaly nice around here.

    Cons

    Planning and software design is close to non existent. Results are obviously half baked solutions. Project execution is about surviving from sprint to sprint Doing Scrum means being Agile mentality enriched with contracting Scrum masters who care about doing Scrum but not much about Project Operations team is major disaster. Distributed between UK and US to make them truly detached.
