Great place to work, if it weren't for the executive mindset
AR Reconciler/ Credit Analyst (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – June 8, 2018
Hachette has a really good working environment in that I enjoyed where I worked, who I worked with, and what I worked on. What it does not do well, that is very frustrating, is open lines of communication between higher management and the service functions of the company.
Executives are driven only by revenue centers, so all the attention, perks, and benefits go to Acquisitions, Editorial, and Sales. Support functions like IT, Finance, and Claims Management get lip service only while the executives pat their backs.
Can be so frustrating when you are in support and you like the company enough that you want to help. Would not be surprised if they get bought out and/or went out of business.
Great office locations, generally great management styles, open floor plans, casual work attire
limited benefits/raises/bonuses, events claimed as benefits that few enjoy
