    I worked at Nature Publishing Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nature and associated research journals have a good reputation in the field, but the nature of scientific publishing is changing a lot so there is some uncertainty about whether this will continue. My direct manager was great but I could see quite a bit of inefficiency in the company. Good location.

    Cons

    See above about changing nature of publishing. Pay is not that great either.

    I have been working at Nature Publishing Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great environment, very nice people who will take a family / life just as important as work.

    Cons

    Their are a lot of slackers who do not work hard and get away with it. Communication between departments is poor, emails and calls sometimes do not get returned for simple requests. Management is lax in disciplining bad employees sending a message to hard working employees that maybe their work is not valued. They need to get rid of the people who take advantage of the companies niceness and patience.
