    Pros

    W.W. Norton is a great company because they really value each and every employee, and every employee really cares about the company because we are employee-owned. This dynamic leads to publishing the best books in the industry. The company is not driven by share holders or money, rather the company makes decisions based on market needs. It's great working for a company with such prestige. It's a company professors know and respect, and professors want to talk to their Norton reps.

    Cons

    We have taken some time to explore the best digital media strategy for us and where/how that fits in the market. This isn't a con, in fact by waiting and reacting to true market dynamics we have the best digital products in the industry to match the best books in the industry.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at W.W. Norton (Jacksonville, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was quite impressed with the interview process. The regional sales manager was quick to respond to any of my questions and very personable. After completing the norton candidate profile, I was contacted almost immediately to set up a phone interview. Within a week we had an in person interview. I was impressed with the questions asked and just how interested the regionals manager was in my thoughts about the job position.
