    I have been working at Simon & Schuster full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Leadership is overall very strong. Work/life balance is good if you want it. Benefits are good due to S&S being a part of CBS. Lots of variety in departments/interests/jobs.

    Cons

    Cogs in a wheel mentality- There are so many employees that you can get lost. Turnover is high at lower levels. Not much room for upward movement.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Simon & Schuster in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and heard back a week later. We discussed two possible imprints where I would fit in best and I chose the one that they suggested, as they based it on my experience and interests. We watched a short video about the imprint too so that I would know more about it. I felt that they were very helpful and nurturing in making sure that not only I was a good fit for them, but that they were a good fit for me too.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me what kinds of books I like to read and what my pursuits were within the publishing industry. They also asked me about my former degree, which was not English or publishing related, and wanted to know why I had initially chosen it. It was a very casual interview.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't much negotiation, it is a paid internship.
