UN International Women's Day (8 March 2015)
To commemorate the UN International Women's Day on 08 March 2015, we invited colleagues all over the world to tell us about a woman who inspired them. More than 50 did so. From sportswomen to politicians and their own moms, colleagues shared how they have been influenced by these role models.
We also provided a free compendium from Wiley's books and journals, accessible through http://www.wileyiwdresearch.com/
Our colleagues from our Social Sciences and Humanities teams moderated a blog to promote discussion and debate about gender equality. Each post was written by one of our journal editors or book authors - leading scholars in their fields. The blog can be accessed here - http://www.wileyiwdresearch.com/gender-equality-blog
International Volunteer Day (5 December 2014)
There were many big-hearted and generous colleagues in Wiley; something we discovered when we decided to honor colleague volunteers as part of the UN International Volunteer Day on 5 December 2014.
More than 50 colleagues from 14 global locations shared their volunteering experience and how it changed them for the better. From manning soup kitchens to reading programs and volunteering their pets to assist with therapy, there was no shortage of examples of how colleagues are giving back to the communities they live and work in.
International Literacy Day (8 September 2014)
To commemorate the UN International Day of Literacy on 8 September 2014, we asked colleagues all over the world to pledge to read towards a collective 890 hours and a matching cash donation would be made to the Singapore office’s adopted charity, the Mitrataa Foundation. And read our colleagues did. More than 600 colleagues all over the world participated, chalking up 1,760 hours.
We are also delighted that the beneficiaries of Mitrataa participated in the endeavor, pledging to read 89 minutes each.

I have been working at Wiley full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
The benefits and work-life balance are great, and I think people really buy into the company values and mission. Managing the transition from print to digital hasn't been easy, and change is slow, but the last year or two things seem to be improving.Cons
When you aren't in a role with a clearly defined career path, your opportunities for advancement will be limited. Some divisions make advancement harder than others. And when you do get a promotion, there is a cap on the % increase you can receive--it's a shame that there's basically a penalty for wanting to stay and move up within the company.Advice to ManagementAdvice

Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Wiley in January 2015.Interview Details
2-3 weeks after applying online I was emailed and asked to come in for an interview. The HR person also attached documentation for me to complete a background check. I was to bring the paperwork in with me when I arrived for the interview. I met with the HR person. The conversation was more about my experience and my career goals. The conversation lasted about 30-35 minutes. Next I met with the person that would be my boss. She spoke mostly and told me how inexperienced I was, but that she could teach me a lot. I appreciated her sentiment. I did not speak much and she told me about how she liked to do things in the office. I just did a lot of nodding and smiling. Next I met with another manager in the department. The conversation flowed nicely.
I emailed shortly after the interviews thanking them for taking the time to meet with me. 3 weeks later I received an email indicating that they had chosen another candidate.No OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
