    I have been working at W.W. Norton full-time (more than 10 years)


    For the most part, this is a great company to work for. The people are friendly. Management is fair. You get nice little perks, like your own office and half-day fridays in summer. They don't work you to the bone. Also, the company does very well for itself. We typically win at least one Pulitzer Prize every year and do well financially due to sales of College Textbooks. So you don't see a lot of layoffs just to save money.


    The only con is the con of pretty much any smaller to mid-sized company. It can be difficult to move up in ranks if you don't rub shoulders with the right people. And if you don't move up, your position can get stagnate.
