    Pros

    A professional environment that rewards contributors and recognises team efforts. Work-life balance and emphasis on personal development and growth.

    Keep up the good work. Keep identifying talent who are both proficient in the area of expertise but also have a good editorial track record.

    Pros

    They have a laid back atmosphere around the office, people are friendly and usually willing to help you out.

    Cons

    Oxford office is in the middle of nowhere, next to Oxford Airport. If you don't have management on your side, you'll be feeling a lot of pressure and it's unfair how people are treated once they have been singled out.

    Advice to Management

    Think about the way people are treated and how to progress with projects. There are no quick, simple and cheap solutions, you really do get what you pay for.
