    Pros

    Meeting authors from all over and learning the local history of towns across the country. Being in book publishing and getting to experience many aspects of that process.

    Cons

    Little room for advancement. With the books almost all in the same series and format, which is great for branding, it can start to feel like doing the same thing again and again. It is a good thing, and eventually you do hope for more variety and to stretch the boundaries.

    Advice to Management

    As with pretty much every company, listen more closely to the people in the trenches, as it were. They are closest to it and do have good ideas. Arcadia is not as bad at this as many companies I've known, and there is room for improvement.
