    Mixed messages - Company values people, departments don't

    I worked at Penguin Group

    Pros

    A good place to get a foot in the door, strong house with great titles, feels like both a big and little company.

    Cons

    Very difficult to advance by staying in house - promotions and raises do not correlate with the workload of the employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster a sense of personal growth for employees and also focus on the work being done instead of personal politics.

    I worked at Penguin Group

    Pros

    Books, Fabulous name, Comfortable Atmosphere, Got to attend some great launch events. Meeting big name editors and authors. Overall a comfortable place to work.

    Cons

    As an intern, I went from building to building (Young Readers is a building down a block). Coworkers complained a lot about poor pay. I didn't hear a lot about how I was doing. I had 3 supervisors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you cannot pay your employees decently, compromise with company paid insurance, more time-off or other perks. Don't give interns meaningless work to do. I did more mailings than I can count.
