    Pros

    If you're passionate about education, it's wonderful going to work every day with similarly minded people. The work-life balance is still pretty great, even if it's gotten worse over the past few years (less flexible hours, less working from home, etc). Your coworkers are great people, many of the mid-managers genuinely care and want to help and look out for their employees.

    Cons

    As other people have said, the learning curve is STEEP. Plus, with all the reorgs and moves and lay-offs, we're severely understaffed and the staff we DO have is all new, unexperienced and overworked. However, the biggest problem by far is salary. Speaking as someone in a junior position in one of the most expensive cities in America, the salary is just not enough to live off of, especially considering how understaffed we are and how much our workload/responsibilities has expanded over the past two years. Once the hiring freeze is lifted, if you manage to find people who are willing to work for such a paltry sum they're most likely going to stay long enough to put it on their resumes, then leave for a company that's willing to pay them a livable wage. In the meantime, you're losing multiple people a week to similar companies who pay more, and out of the remaining people left, nearly everyone is job hunting.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously, look at the pay. I routinely meet people in this city with similar skills and far less experience that work for learning apps, and they make two to three times what our junior staff does. With compensation at its current level, you are only going to get desperate people or people who bail, and it's going to affect the quality of publications. You can ask people to learn digital and double their workload and work overtime (even if you say it's frowned upon, but there's no other way to complete all of your projects since now you have three times the number of them and no support staff), but not if you pay them so little that they can't afford to live. Most people want to work in education publishing because they're passionate about it; we're willing to work, and work hard, we just want to be able to spend $5 on a Subway sandwich for lunch and not feel guilty about it.
