    I have been working at Hachette Book Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent products, smart and interesting colleagues, great benefits.

    Cons

    Seems like senior vice presidents with vague titles are being added every other week, but support staff for getting the work done is constantly being cut. More work than ever for fewer people. Sadistic managers, no help from HR with conflicts. The boss is always right. New offices will be open plan with no space to put our work-in-progress or - God forbid! - books. You are paid for a 35-hour week, but everyone I know regularly works much more than that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect mid-level employees. They are probably as committed to the company as you are, and they get the work done. Avoid top-down edicts, whether policy changes or criticism of employees - your people are smart, talented, dedicated - give them a chance to express themselves and listen to them!
