    I have been working at Macmillan Education full-time

    Pros

    -Hardworking & likable co-workers who have been at the company for many years. Company really cares about quality of content (versus quantity...for now). -Decent benefits and perks (free beverages). -Ability to make your own hours (within reason). -Interesting Titles

    Cons

    -Very slow growth -Rarely have the ability to work from home -Managers can be unprofessional/demeaning (unless they like you)

    Advice to Management

    Reward those that work hard appropriately. I don't mean just with money either.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Macmillan Education full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, mid-size publishing company not beholden to stockholders, solid ownership with good core values

    Cons

    Lots of turnover over the past 3 years, college publishing unit seems to be looking for an identity, less long term focused now than in past

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Macmillan Education

    Pros

    The company is filled with wonderful, intelligent, and talented colleagues. They make quality products that you can be proud of.

    Cons

    The company is going through so many changes--leadership, restructuring, vision, goals--it often feels like total chaos. Can be a very frustrating work environment because of this. Also many old school employees who are stuck in old ways and reluctant to embrace new ideas or foster creativity.

    Advice to Management

    Keep all of your talent by paying live able wages. The entry level salary is insulting and absurd for living in one of the most expensive cities in the world. Invest in your employees and trust them to do well the job you hired them to do.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Macmillan Education full-time

    Pros

    Opinions and ideas respected right from the start and there seem to be lots of opportunities for progression if you want them

    Cons

    Workload is large and sometimes there isn't sufficient resource to cover busy periods, which can lead to stress and pressure

    Advice to Management

    It seems to take a long time to recruit new members of staff, meaning that when people leave the company everyone else is overstretched. It would be good to address this situation.
