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

    Pros

    Very welcoming and friendly environment.
    You can take free books home.
    A very thorough and well thought out program for interns that really helps give you great insight on the industry and the various departments.
    You truly learn a lot about the industry.
    You never know who you will run into.

    Cons

    As an intern, I didn't really find anything to complain about. Maybe it can depend on which department you're working in.

    I worked at Hachette Book Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues, interesting and stimulating projects/work, fun atmosphere and many company events, good perks (free books!) and benefits including 401k matching, charitable donation matching, a decent amount of vacation time, and a good health plan

    Cons

    Some departments have good managers and lots of growth opportunities, but some unlucky departments have the opposite. Wages are on the low end, even for publishing. Work can be either very slow or very stressful—there is no in-between.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so comfortable with the status quo—take seriously the concerns of your employees, not just the ones in senior management.
