    I worked at W.W. Norton as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The Editorial internship at W.W. Norton was a great chance to learn about the ins and outs of text-book publishing. From communicating with reviewers and authors to compiling permissions archives and sitting in on production meetings, I feel more prepared to enter a career in publishing.

    Cons

    The intern culture was very solitary and the accomidations for interns left a lot to be desired. If you work here as an intern, you should be comfortable working for long hours on archaic equipment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more of an effort to reach out to new employees and interns, sometimes it felt difficult to communicate with managerial and senior staff as an intern.
