Pros: health benefits were great, they catered lunch every friday, every 5 year anniversary you were treated to a free international trip + an extra week of vacation
Cons: corwin publishes books for professional development for educators, budget cuts and the digital age has impacted book sales, soon books will be obsolete.
SAGE/Corwin really cares about their employees and their company values really mean something and everyone is treated with respect. As an assistant to an executive, my workload for the day was determined by what the executives needs were. We relied heavily on Outlook due to back to back meetings, making sure everyone was on time and had all documents – more... needed for the meetings. It was my job to make sure everything ran smoothly and I did whatever I could to make the executives job easier.
I got along great with my boss and my co-workers and that made the job very enjoyable.
SAGE is publishing company that is family run and they have been in business for over 45 years. There is a sister company called Corwin, that is run by the son of the SAGE founders. Last year my boss and I were transferred to Corwin, in an effort to help turn things around, as they were losing money. Unfortunately they continued on a downward spiral and were forced to lay off staff, in an effort to save money, otherwise I would still be employed there. – less
