    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Corwin is growing and gaining market share due to a new vision established by the company's president, Mike Soules.

    Cons

    Company culture is demoralizing--unrealistic demands and no support. Very hierarchical, with only a few managers deserving of their positions.

    Advice to Management

    Cultivate and value the people you have on staff. Address the backbiting and tattletale work environment.


  2. No work/life balance

    I have been working at Corwin Press full-time

    Pros

    The company is a K12 education publisher. What's to hate about that?

    Cons

    The company is trying to do too many things and has not scaled up its staff, leaving many overworked. There also does not seem to be much relief in sight. There's a culture in the company that this is just the way it's going to be. For an organization that has asked so much of its employees--laying off a number of them a year or so ago--it seems like management should be a bit more appreciative. The remaining staff has kept up their passion and excitement for the work and their morale despite all the work and changes that are being thrown at them. Rather than making them feel like they're still not doing enough, planning for growth and providing some hope would go a long way with employees.
