It can be difficult to advance leading to stagnant work conditions.

    Best Intern Experience

    I worked at Hachette Book Group as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great program for interns that allows them to learn about all the different departments and positions at the company. Forms an overall picture of how publishing works. Office staff is very warm and helpful towards interns, willing to meet and have conversations.

    Cons

    Lots of interns every summer so arguably lots of competition to really stand out (but doesn't it work like that everywhere?). Also intern work is not the best (a lot of mailing or data entry, for example), but that's also how being an intern works, and the people who have real positions have to do those things too.

    I worked at Hachette Book Group full-time

    Pros

    It matters where you work - if you are with LB, FaithWords or Orbit/Yen, you're in a good place. The teams have a strong senior management team in place.

    Cons

    If you're in GCP or LBYR, good luck to you. Mismanaged, no strategic direction, a mess. Routinely would see people in tears in their cubicles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New CEO is incoming, it should make a difference. But applying the same standards throughout the 5 divisions would certainly help. LB shouldn't be run that differently from LBYR and GCP, but it is. It's functional, the other groups are not.
