    Cons

    New initiatives, technology and business processes always have a learning curve especially when there are many new team members. However, in the long run these things will prove to be worth the time of initiating I'm sure!

    I worked at Springer Publishing Company full-time

    Pros

    -close to public transit -air conditioned -nothing else. Seriously, women, DO NOT WORK HERE.

    Cons

    Springer Publishing Company promotes and retains mediocre men in high ranking roles despite their lack of talent, skills, knowledge, and especially their lack of respect for women. This office is overflowing with sexism and misogyny. There have been SEVERAL incidents of sexual harassment that were filed and "investigated" but those who filed the complaints are no longer working there, while the men continue to work there...

    I worked at Springer Publishing Company

    Pros

    The best thing about Springer is the experience you'll get working at a small company. You'll be able to work hands-on with projects and be directly involved. You'll know everyone and everything and report directly, oftentimes, to your department head.

    Cons

    The company is top-heavy; a lot of experienced professionals who have manager level or higher. This leaves the assistants, associates, and coordinators at a disadvantage monetarily. The new CEO is very results-driven, which puts pressure on the top and it trickles down. Everyone is very stressed. You barely get a chance to get ahead on your work before another project is put on you due to someone quitting or a result...

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your younger employees. They are the ones putting your name out there for the young professionals. Create an environment they can grow in, instead of only having an assistant level who MIGHT get promoted to associate after 3 years. Ask their opinions and value the hard work they put in. There is a reason the turnover is so high among younger employees - please don't ignore it anymore.

    Pros

    Recently left my position. Good pizza party meetings and summer Friday's That's about it Seriously !

    Cons

    New CEO that just stays in her office all day long. Many changes that anyone could handle. No flow of work management whatsoever. No good leaders, just managers with new many ideas, no staff and ways to execute them .

    Advice to Management

    Re organize the management. keep the good workers happy and get rid of the lackers, sad I left . I enjoyed the coffee and bugs on the floor .

    I worked at Springer Publishing Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I can literally think of no pro behind working for this company. The location's central and the lobby has good air conditioning. Aside from that, there is nothing good to speak of about this organization or its people.

    Cons

    This company is the reason my hairline receded in my early twenties. The office is filled with, as another colleague put it, "the has-beens and never-was" of publishing in New York City. The CFO is a raving, screaming lunatic with an anger issue, and the CEO is out to lunch. No one is at the helm, and the publisher will commit just about anything to print. There's no room for growth, if your heart can even take the stress...
