      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

      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 personal comments at each other,talk rubbish. No intellectual stimulation happening. Women dominated , so they flirt with the first man they find,even married women with kids. Blame their own in competencies over innocent employees. Worst company culture ever!!!!!! Beware,they will eat you up before you know it. Vamps all around!

      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.

      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
