I have been working at OUP USA

Pros

Have to say I love this place. I like working independently, my boss has provided me with ample opportunity to work at moving up (and did in fact promote me), and has encouraged me to gain acquisitions experience. Good benefits, and a pretty casual environment. Also, the president is really great. Takes the time to talk to everybody, is very open and honest, and has an excellent knowledge of the industry. Anybody who doesn't succeed here or get something meaningful out of the experience wasn't really trying.

Cons

Low pay, but what do you expect from a not-for-profit academic publisher? Also, publishing is a topsy-turvy field right now, but what isn't?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I got nothing, except maybe try to get all the departments paperless. Makes everything so much faster. It would also be awesome if some kind of cross-the-pond exchange could be done, especially for people lower down...

    I have been working at OUP USA

    Pros

    Your co-workers count on you to do work and you can rely on them in return. Starting as an intern, I was never asked to grab coffee. I had "real work" from the beginning.

    Cons

    A lot of turn-over, constantly re-structuring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more assistants to take care of administrative work for middle managers!
