    I have been working at Taylor & Francis Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoy working at Taylor and Francis because co-workers and management are supportive and goals are clear, challenging. Work expectations are realistic, meaning I can get my core job and some training completed within the normal working week, and meet targets, if I concentrate, prioritise and work effectively.

    Flexible working is encouraged.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to change preconceptions that exist within the team/department.
    Sometimes lacking in creative problem solving
    Very quiet working environment

    Advice to Management

    Invest in more digital experiences for customers (not just producing electronic versions of books).
    Make greater use of technology for 3D tours (similar to the anatomy concept but expanded to other topic areas such as architecture)
    Improve customer loyalty by having individual accounts where customers can track what books they have reviewed and rewarding useful title reviews (reward points)
