    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at IGI Global full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers and a nice, clean office building.

    Cons

    Poorly edited textbooks and journals that mostly only professors (who are also contributors) purchase and make their unlucky students do the same. Poor compensation, although perhaps fair since most hires are very young and inexperienced. Unpredictable company President that springs termination on random people with good reviews and no previous warnings or write-ups.

    Advice to Management

    Make better decisions when you hire a Managing Director. Don't fire your most talented employees. Hire a more experienced staff. Turn up the thermostat in winter!

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at IGI Global full-time

    Pros

    Tried to make work easier for employess by updating software regularly; annual company picnic and christmas party to encourage team feeling.

    Cons

    Treated employees like children - even on lunch hours employees not allowed to access personal email accounts; phone calls and emails monitored and read by management; constant layoffs of regular workers with replacement by 30 hr/wk in-huse$8 temps led to lack of feeling of job security; constant upheavals in management with neh hires from outside. Salaries were low and most employees were straight out of college.... If a holiday fell on a weekend there was no guarantee of getting a day off in the week.

    Loyalty and respect towards employees goes a long way. Lack of it gets you unhappy employees. One picnic and pary a year does not get rid of the 363 days of

    I have been working at IGI Global

    Pros

    Exposure to Publishing Industry and experience with copy editing or production of printed material. People are friendly, though overall clueless as they only hire people who are inexperienced.

    Cons

    Poor management, the owner is crazy and unpredictable, especially when it comes to org chart and firing. They hire people for one job, then tell them they are working in another job once they show up. Poor pay and benefits.

    Advice to Management

    You need to increase salaries, and stop using new college grads as slave labor. Pay well and cultivate the talent you have so people stick around more than a year. You could have some great employees if you cared to use them without abusing them.
