I have been working at Springer Science + Business Media full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Vacation time, Benefits, 401k package, flex time are all attractive and contribute to the loyalty of their employees. Global business, multicultural colleagues, and industry leader.

Cons

Negotiate your base salary, then don't expect much growth. Bonuses are inconsistent and not based on merit- everyone is treated equally to a fault. HR is not confidential. Effort and loyalty don't amount to much here. Those who don't work hard are not encouraged to apply themselves, in fact, they can do very little to maintain their job and it is rare that any one is fired. Redundancy leads to layoffs, but no one ever gets fired. What is the incentive to work hard?

Advice to Management

Create your own department incentives and praise the employees who work hard. The company is becoming too large to identify the efforts and accomplishments of the individual. Demand quality over turnaround to uphold your employees' reputations.

    "Great place to work, but minimal upward (or lateral) mobility for mid-senior level employees."

    Pros

    Very flexible on hours, expenses, etc. Great people, can be a fun environment.

    Cons

    Pretty much impossible to move up or into another dept. They DO NOT foster any type of career development unless its within your own division.

    Advice to Management

    I'd say I approve of the way Haank runs the company, but it's run with seemingly little regard to market demands and more to sclerotic ideas about what the market SHOULD want.

    Pros

    Good Work/Life Balance and Great Location

    Cons

    Management Mistreats their Subordinates and treat the Licensing Support as if they were their very own maids. Management got to where they are because of the fact that they do not care about anyone else but themselves, lest of all, those who look to them for direction in their own jobs. Salaries are Low and there is little chance to move around within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Take a double look at your Sales VP's and how they are managing their Support. You would be surprised at all the injustices....
