Relaxed work environment, but no room to grow
Production (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMay 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.
Pros
Casual work environment, friendly coworkers, nice benefits
Cons
Lack of communication from management, low salaries, lack of growth opportunities

Behind the times
Assistant Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 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.

I haven't been there since the merger with Nature
Licensing Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 19, 2018
My review is bound to be out of date, as I haven't been there since the merger with Nature. Overall, Springer was a decent place to work, but compensation was low for the amount of work we did.

Not a good fit for me
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  New York, NYDecember 1, 2017
Though other employees seemed to be content enough at this company, the position was not a good fit for me, and as a result I had a fairly poor experience.

Interesting colleagues but currently in merger/transition
Manager, editorial (Current Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 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.

Organization evolving to meet changing academic publishing marketplace
Vice President (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 6, 2017
Springer Nature is a joint venture formed by the merger of Macmillan Science and Education and Springer Science and Business Media. The joint venture was formed in response to seismic market changes in academic publishing. While staff redundancies are to be expected in a merger of this scale, most severed employees are former Macmillan staff. Management's focus is on harmonizing operating systems across the various Springer-Nature brands.
Pros
Good benefits, unusually generous severance plan
Cons
High Bureaucratic, top-down management approach.

Bigger, but not necessarily better
Senior Acquisitions Editor (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 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.
Cons
Open office

Licensing Manager, Corporate Tech Markets (Current Employee) –  Silicon Valley, CAMarch 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, NYFebruary 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.
Pros
Lots of business travel. Good people to work with. Good healthcare.
Cons
Workload can be challenging for some. Travel can be difficult for some.
