Pros

The largest publisher in the world, delivering critical material to science professionals that ultimately helps in discoveries to improve life and living everywhere.

Cons

This applies to the books group only: Heavily matrixed organization, difficult to learn one's way. Systems need work. Change is constant. Sr exec sometimes insults/berates employees publicly and allows an environment for other employees to follow suit.

Advice to Management

Senior mgmt (books) needs to show more maturity in group meetings and people management.

    Disapproves of CEO

    All of the real work is done in India

    Advice to Management

    Tell the truth, don't spin. Employees are not as blind as you think.
