Great company culture, low pay
Associate Editor (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 2, 2018
You'll make a lot of lasting friendships at Macmillan and make connections with some incredibly talented, diverse people. Work-life balance is good and the health benefits and paid time off are great. Salary in editorial is not ideal.

Wonderful company, wonderful people
Inside Sales Publisher's Representative (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, NJDecember 26, 2017
Typical day involves analyzing pipeline and formulating a call list based on priorities determined from pipeline
Learned how to manage a territory and how to manage customer relationships, as well as how to lead a team
Workplace culture was optimal. Personable, warm, collaborative environment. Work-life balance at its best.
Hardest part of job was that such a big piece of sales success is tied to revenue you have no control over and no transparency into how revenue was determined or reported.

Publishers' Representative, May (Current Employee) –  DenverOctober 16, 2017
Tough sales job. Textbooks are becoming a thing of the past while the technology they are trying to sell is not up to date with even some of the most simplest apps one can have on their phone.
