    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Macmillan Education full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great people, historically some of the best in the higher education field. Competitive remuneration packages, and flexibility with working from home. Some interest in training and development experience for more junior employees.

    Cons

    Appalling management, from the top all the way down to the new (superfluous) middle-managers. Seemingly constant restructuring and omnipresent management-speak is demoralizing for staff, and contributes little but distracting from front-line employees getting their heavy workload done. Platitudes about Macmillan being an international company should not be taken seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Shape up, or better yet just ship out.

    I have been working at Macmillan Education

    Pros

    Great people, benefits, and product. New offices in NYC. Improvements should be apparent within 6 months to a year.

    Cons

    Previous corporate mistakes and management changes have created a challenging environment.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency, improve work-life balance, and streamline processes so we can be creative and regain our culture again.
