    I have been working at Springer International Publishing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice offices, (generally) friendly colleagues, interesting products

    Cons

    Very political, which means that obstructive / incompetent staff on friendly terms with the upper ranks is kept on while efficient, motivated staff are being let go to make the budget look better. No evident strategy, truly TRULY awful communication where essential information needs to be gleaned from snippets picked up somewhere in the hallways.

    Pros

    Easy going environment. Heaven for those who can get away with not doing much work. Good work-life balance. Ample leave. Lots and lots of opportunity to travel.

    Talking about Springer India specifically, salaries are low and not commensurate with qualification or experience. There is a dire need for better managers- the top management is abysmally bad. No transparency at all. No work from home option.
