Writer for the Encyclopedia of Lunar Science (Current Employee) – New York, NY – July 19, 2018
I was able to be a quality writer for the company in cooperation with fellow workers who were helpful in obtaining the final goals. the result was a successfully completed chapter that is the largest accepted in the Encyclopedia of Lunar Science.
Production (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 22, 2018
The environment at Springer Nature is relaxed and there were rarely times when I felt pressured to put in additional hours. Vacation time is generous and the benefits were pretty good.
That said, communication with management could use improvement. Projects were often started without clear direction. There is no room for growth and not really any opportunities to advance. I felt a lot of talent is wasted and management does not value individual employees.
Casual work environment, friendly coworkers, nice benefits
Lack of communication from management, low salaries, lack of growth opportunities
Project Support Administrator/ Test Coordinator (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 26, 2018
I loved working at Springer. The only reason I left was because I had to relocate to Atlanta for family reasons. My manager was extremely supportive and allowed me the autonomy necessasry to make empowered decisions.
International travel (Europe), Telecommuting option, great benefits package
Assistant Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 13, 2018
SpringerNature has a great culture but it lacks strategic thinking and they do not invest in technology. There a perks such as summer Fridays and generous vacation days, but that is balanced out by low pay.
Senior Editor (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 16, 2018
I've worked at SpringerNature for 8 years and have experienced tremendous career growth, have been given and taken advantage of several development opportunities, and there's a great social culture to the office.
Interesting colleagues but currently in merger/transition
Manager, editorial (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 25, 2017
Has been a great place to work - interesting work, pleasant colleagues, salary and benefits reasonable for the industry - but is currently winding through the results of a merger that has led to constant changes to systems (from HR time off system through IT support through major production systems) that has been quite poorly managed (e.g. frequent systems outages, printers not working for months) and is undercutting staff efficiency pretty badly. I question many of the decisions and implementation details of many of these changes and have reached the point where the unpleasantness outweighs the positives.
Senior Acquisitions Editor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 7, 2016
Large company with all the advantages [resources] and disadvantages [bureaucracy and slow response] of size. Good e-book program, but significant management disinterest in spending to support the journal program - with the result that most have poor impact factors. Merger with Macmillan may be causing finanical strain.
Licensing Manager, Corporate Tech Markets (Current Employee) – Silicon Valley, CA – March 24, 2015
Great opportunity to grow in sales and business development; work closely to C-level execs; relatively good work/life balance, but a lot of travel. Management is questionable at the moment during merger - but good people and great opportunities.
Springer is a good company with some very intelligent and talented young minded people.
Executive Licensing Manager Government (Current Employee) – New York, NY – February 20, 2015
Springer is a good company with many opportunities for young people to begin and grow their career in publishing. I have had the pleasure of working with some very talented and intelligent, driven people at Springer and am impressed. The work at Springer in the sales group is challenging with increasingly challenging annual sales targets. The customer group is very good to work with although they face challenging times with budget reductions and rationalizations. I would recommend that a young person give Springer a try.
Lots of business travel. Good people to work with. Good healthcare.
Workload can be challenging for some. Travel can be difficult for some.
