Pros

Benefits are good, business is growing in spite of the economy, Marjorie Scardino is a globally focused leader with a clear vision of the future.

Cons

Weak or poorly chosen business unit management, limited vision on how to be a global company, unable to communicate their vision or get employees excited about how they can support the business. Too much is hidden from employees for "fear" that competitors will try to copy their strategy.

Advice to Management

I suggest that there be regular, informative communication, cascading goals (if you can actually articulate them) down to employees so that they can contribute to the success of the business. Don't let the marketing department control the strategy - your competitive advantage is in your people! That can't be duplicated by your competitors.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Low work load, mindless work. Nice gig if you want to do a 9-5. People are nice, work is easy, simple business model, very primitive.

    Cons

    Frustrating for those that want to drive change and process improvement. This is a publishing company that still has not fully embraced the digital age.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some fresh blood at the highest level and drive change.
