Pros

Learned a lot and given a lot of responsibility.

Cons

The Wednesday chats didn't include much information about design, left me in the dark a bit. No pay or stipend.

Advice to Management

Learn a little more about the design side of the business, it is pretty important.

    Pros

    Pros: okay hours, nice people, get to rub elbows with celebs, tons of free books, unlimited sick days, relaxed office culture where you can say pretty much anything you want.

    Cons

    Cons: Salary, hard to get promoted, mediocre managers, work was not that interesting, the authors are frequently god-awful to work with due to outsized egos.

    Advice to Management

    Stop relying on unpaid interns to stay afloat.

    Pros

    Everyone was friendly and genuinely cared about my learning. As a first internship in college, it was overall a good learning experience - got to learn the ins and outs of publicity for publishing. After a few months I was also given some more responsibility in my tasks, e.g. pitching bloggers. Also: free books!

    Cons

    Unpaid, no stipend, no potential for/promise of full time employment in future. Also, some days I worked entirely on menial tasks, e.g. book mailings.
