Does Packt have a pension plan?

Pros

Good company culture, easy to get on with everyone. Generally flexible and accommodating environment. Learning is encouraged and a great company if you are interested in tech and software. Good exposure to a dynamic business in an interesting and growing industry. Very cooperative and good support from teams, most are very motivated to succeed. Received sponsorship for accounting qualification. Good pension scheme.

Cons

Inadequate systems and inefficient processes currently, that can cause bottlenecks at critical times. Can be very stressful. Strategies can often change quickly. Understandable in that industry but can often be done before the foundations of good systems are set and has been appropriately communicated across the company.

Advice to Management

Invest well and properly in developing robust and well implemented/tested systems. This will lead to many tangible and non tangible benefits down the road. Try to promote better and more frequent communication across the business to remind everyone of the bigger picture. This was too inconsistent at times and lead to some surprises. Give time for some managers and employees to develop and grow in their role. Act when they need support.

Good pension scheme.
