    Bland, boring, and useless

    I worked at Cambridge University Press

    Pros

    Looks good on your resume

    Cons

    No one talks to you as an intern and most days I just sat there with absolutely nothing to do. They think their intern program is amazing, but HR was completely disorganized, and no one knew how to make their interns useful. I spent most of my summer staring at a cubicle wall under artificial lighting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the interns actual projects and tasks and organize their luncheons better.

    Digital Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Cambridge University Press in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Normal application online - cover letter and CV. Two interviews in total, both face-to-face. First one was general getting-to-know you kind of questions. Second one involved doing a presentation on a project I'd run and many more in-depth questions than the first interview.

    The people seemed like a really nice bunch. Friendly, social, easy to get on with. In contrast, the office building itself was a bit dreary. As expected, the work culture definitely more towards the academic than a fast-paced corporated environment.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions asked about other previous projects and what they involved, what difficulties were encountered, how they were overcome, how I influence others, how I deal with conflicting objectives and how I go about prioritising work.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    1. They seem to run along very traditional project management lines - less innovative and creative that I would get on with. 2. The salary was 20% down on what would be typical market rate (they offer 30-33k).
