    I worked at Packt Publishing as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Some of the people that work here are pleasant to work with and do their job well.
    - They publish books for growing niche industries.

    Cons

    - As an author you can handed off to new project managers countless times through a project, who are doubtless juggling many other projects at the same time.
    - They had me create materials for a disk that would come with the book along with references to the disk materials written into the book and then at the end of the production cycle they took the disk out to save costs, but left all the references to the missing content.
    - I created a technical art book for them and to save costs they printed the book in black and white even though there were throughout that relied on color, such as color wheels!
    - The pay turns out to be pennies on the hour after the many hours you put in and you don't collect royalties until after production costs are covered, which is never, considering they severely hurt the quality of your book with last minute decisions that destroy the integrity of the book.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Define clear objectives for the end product and stick to them, so that you don't waste you and your authors time and money.
    - Assign a point person that stays on for the duration of a project. Don't change the team up constantly throughout production.
