    I worked at North American Publishing Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Promotes from within; very nice, fun people work here; great spot in the city near the Art Museum; decent benefits (but could be better); good team atmosphere; new leadership that's promising; adapting nicely to digital era. Hours are NOT insane and place is not a political mess like so many publishing companies.

    Cons

    Compensation could be better, so negotiate well upfront. Better benefits would be nice, such as better 401K match or gym membership. Sometimes too many meetings, but what company isn't guilt of that?
