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.
