Pros

The People!! Lots of tenure at HBG and plenty of friendly faces. The Boston office was around 200 employees while I was there but it never felt like it.

Books!! Its not a requirement, but most people that work for HBG have a strong passion for publishing and books in one capacity or another. Since I left there my bookshelves have sadly dimished, haha. Authors would occasionally come into the Boston office - always fun!

Benefits!! The company provides great benefit packages for their employees to choose from. Everything from the typical medical, dental, vision, 401k to other programs like backup childcare, matching gift donations to non profits/charities and tuition reimbursement.

Cons

Compensation - Publishing in general pays at the lower end of compensation. Although they try to make up for this in other benefits and ways it can be hard to not be disappointed.

Career Development - The companie tries to offer career development opportunites whenever possible for internal employees, however since it is a relatively small company and many people stay for a long time (15-20-25+ yrs tenure!) movement is slow.

    Pros

    Great environment to cultivate fresh talent, nice co-workers and supervisors who are passionate about their craft and the book world, great guidance, open-door policy, summer-hours and all the free books one could ever want. Very organized internship program that gives you detailed insight on all the jobs and functions of a publishing house and how they work together.

    Cons

    Communication between departments working together on some projects could be better.


  2. A great publishing house! The best publishing house in NYC.
