It's fine to work here for a few years but don't stay long. They're not interested in retaining experienced people if they can get people for smaller salaries. Underpaid for design and web work. We had higher-ups steal credit for our ideas for improvement more than once. It's a large company that ultimately only cares about itself and shareholders, employees are replaceable. Jobs that could easily be over 50% work-from-home are required to work in the office.
Okay work/life balance, free books, occaisional meeting authors
Little-to-no remote working, few promotion prospects, poor communication between depts, higher-ups stole credit, underpaid for design, open plan office, HR doesn't look out for employees, too many meetings
Do you enjoy working at your company?
Help people considering your employer make a good choice.
As a whole it is a good company. Compensation can be excellent for warehouse staff. Clerical and Administrative are over worked, underpaid, stressed and poorly managed. Long hours and lack of appreciation for a job well done. Some departments report to two locations which results in confusion

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
Fast pace and fun workplace. Management would provide many benefits for the employees. The hardest part of the job was trying to do my inventory and ordering. The best part of the job was my supervisor. She was the best.
Free lunches, parties and outings
Not being able to move about
Fast paced. Friendly and helpful co-workers. Company lunches. A really good place for summer students to gain experience in warehouse. Opportunity to return for full time employment after age of 18. Good Insurance and benefits package.
Great experience and pay for summer help
Hachette offers a lot of autonomy to work to your strengths. But there can also be a lack of cohesive support within departments. So it can be difficult to feel like you are achieving what you need to.
Fresh fruit on Tuesdays
Lack of support from marketing and PR
Excellent place to work, its just the right size. Offices are centrally located and beautiful. Everyone is super nice and intelligent. They try their best to engage employees and contractors. Multiple layers of management can get a bit confusing, but overall they seem to care sincerely about their employees, their opinions and well being.
confusing management structure
Hachette Book Group is the perfect place to begin your career and learn how to collaborate. The office space is open with no designated manager offices, modern video teleconferencing and all gender welcome. The office spaces present modernity for young workers with spacious spaces, conference rooms with aluminum framed frosted glass with unfinished ceilings, stylish furniture and a pool table.
Free coffee, milk products, Free fruit Tuesdays; Third Thursday Pizza, Wine, Beer; Art Gallery and Bake off events
Management style is outdated
I love working at Hachette. I've been here for two and a half years and would love to stay here for the long haul. I'm proud of the books we publish and value the insight that my coworkers and superiors bestow upon me. Great growth opportunities.
