excellent opportunity for growth
Manager (Fulfillment Positions) (Former Employee), Boston MAFebruary 14, 2014
Hachette Book Group is the American arm of the second largest publisher in the world. The company has evolved so much over the past quarter decade, and is now in an exciting phase of new development. Although formal flexible schedules are frowned upon, it is not incumbent upon most employees to work overtime. I was able to work in several management – more... positions, and internal candidates are often considered when employment opportunities arise. Many employees have longevity, and are committed to mentoring younger employees. I feel that the company has lost some of the 'family' atmosphere it used to have, but it is still a very enjoyable place to work, with great benefits, and decent salaries once you get past the low entry-level salary. – less

It's a job, not a career
Associate (Current Employee), Lebanon, INMay 13, 2013
Cons: management/ hr
HR has too much involvement in the day to day operations. The promotion interview process is kind of a joke. Management already has their minds made up about who they are going to hire before interviews start, effectively wasting the supervisor's and applicants time. The company doesn't seem to have any guidelines for discipline . depending on who you – more... are, you can repeatedly make mistakes where another individual will get a write up for making the same mistake. HR doesn't have the trust of the employees. They want you to confide in them, but will turn the situation around on you. – less
