    I learned a lot. I enjoyed working with my direct manager and my immediate team. Working there helped me assess my career direction.

    Difficulty working with other departments. Departments work in silos. Changes happen with little notice and it impacts employees' work. Sometimes the information released to employees can be vague and it affects how different departments work together.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Springer Nature full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Learning how to manage/maintain accounts, researching historical data, contract, and invoicing knowledge while working cross-departmentally. Most of the people are decent and good people. The educational content, on your off time, is worth exploring.

    Cons

    No room for upward mobility unless you're willing to take on several side projects at no additional expense while maintaining your own workflow. Sales Operation carries the brunt of the load. Lack of managerial support and comradery with Sales.

    Overall, Springer Nature is a good place to work. It is a company that does good work so you feel good about what you are doing. It also offers opportunities to try new things.

    Cons

    The company has been trying to decrease expenses so hard that it affects morale and the quality of work employees are able to do.
