    "Really great people and products - unclear direction"

      I worked at Macmillan Education for more than 8 years

      Pros

      * There's a long, multi-decade commitment to producing really good content and a strong ethical backbone to the company * The people are smart and generally friendly and fun * Lines blur between roles in a useful way - you get a lot of experience and can move around the company easily

      Cons

      * Senior management and strategy has shifted strongly in recent years, with a ton of reorganization, leading to a lot of confusion and uncertainty * Promotions into management don't come with management training - a lot of well-intended people have no idea how to manage their employees, and it chases some good entry-level people away

      I have been working at Macmillan Education

      Pros

      No pros. Maybe good coffee and work timings.

      Cons

      Upper management has no brains of there own, HIGHLY UNPROFESSIONAL. Hurl abuses at each other on the floor,threaten employees if they try and complain. HR is of no use,just a puppet in the hands of the senior management. Senior management comes with no experience,no creativity,only slavish behaviour. A very boring atmosphere. They pass...

      Advice to Management

      Be a little less stressed out and learn to balance between work and home. Behave yourselves. Get some brains. Use them into work and not politics!

      I worked at Macmillan Education

      Pros

      It's hard to find positives since all the restructuring. It was a lovely company full of interesting people but they have all be pushed out. All that remains is a hollow brand name. Some remants of decency remain.

      Cons

      Terrible senior management. Completely out of touch. Lacking foresight.

      Advice to Management

      Start investing in business development. Give employees something to feel proud of instead of nothing but cutting, slashing and restructuring.

      Pros

      Some talented, hard-working staff. It's a shame that most of them have left in the last couple of years.

      Cons

      Poor senior management, organisational chaos, too much politics
