Good people, tough to stay competative
Director, Internal Communications (Former Employee) – New York, NY – December 29, 2017
This company is made of wonderful, collaborative, energetic and friendly people - by far the best asset of the company. Leadership changes over the years have brought the company to focus more on growth, expansion, and bottom line, rather than publishing meaningful content. The list is mostly great, but some books are rushed, some are bought at great prices because of celebrity when it is known they won't earn back. Employees are tasked to do more with less as the company tries to stay competitive in a tough industry with small margins. Entry level salaries are low - as they are throughout the publishing world.
good colleagues, good benefits
staff feel overworked, stretched too thin
