    I have been working at Perseus Books Group full-time (more than an year)


    Across the company, everyone I have met has been intelligent, respectful, and welcoming to all faces from the front desk to the exec's office. These people really care about the company and about each other, and look out for each other's well being.


    Not being one of the "big five" trade publishers means there aren't as many resources to spare, and in my experience salaries and benefits can be a bit deflated depending on department and position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You've got great team members; reward and retain them with better compensation, especially at the bottom. And no more unpaid internships.
