    I have been working at Springer Science + Business Media full-time

    Pros

    The environment is very laid back and the people are very nice. For the most part you are left alone as long as you get your work done.

    Cons

    The expectations for signing books is very unrealistic. The company is mostly focused on quantity rather than quality, but complain about how the books are performing. Their goals have proven to be quite unattainable and you aren't rewarded for the other work you are doing, just the number of books you sign.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Springer Science + Business Media.

    Interview Details

    Easy. Had three interviews. The first was a basis assessment over the phone with the recruiter. Second was with the Licensing Manager. For the third interview, I had to do a 10 minute presentation to the sales team (about 10 people in the room) and answer their questions.
