    Pros

    Good benefits and flexible hours, easy to telecommute, good brand name recognition. Laid back work environment and people are generally friendly.

    Cons

    Low pay with little in terms of raises. Easy for people to get complacent. Upper management can seem out of touch.

    Pros

    Flexible working schedule with generous vacation time. Good health insurance and benefits. Helpful colleagues. Opportunity to travel (attending conferences and visiting labs).

    Cons

    Low pay, even compared to other publishing companies in the US like Cell Press or PLoS. Plenty of staff are demotivated. Rising expectations from upper management and increasing work load. Working atmosphere could be better.

    Pros

    Work schedule is flexible, science can be pretty amazing.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement unless you work in the London office, currently very little pay increase, poor communication between upper management and everyone else.

    Pros

    Nice to work for a company that many people hold in high esteem; there are some smart people there, and it's reasonably family-friendly.

    Cons

    Unfortunately upper management in the London office have continued trading on the good 'nature' name for too long, and as a result the company is arrogant, over-sized and rushes around acquiring journals faster than lightning. They then hand over the day-to-day running of these journals to staff who are already working beyond capacity with a 'sink or swim' mentality and very little support or guidance. Turnover is notoriously high - seems everyone either works there for 6 months, 6 years or life. Pay is pretty dismal because HR knows that everyone wants a shot at workign there - it's "a resume builder" they say. Admittedly that's true, and my time there did open other doors, but that's no reason to pay so poorly.
