I have been working at Penguin Group full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great working environment for the most part, with friendly people and an overall pleasant atmosphere. Good job security and benefits (both health and access to books and discounts).

Cons

Not diverse at all in who works here or who we publish. Often get saddled with way more work than can be done in a day (for not the best pay). Some resistance to innovation/real creativity.

    I have been working at Penguin Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Filled with intelligent people who are sincerely passionate about books. Good work-life balance and benefits plan. Plenty of free books.

    Cons

    Career mobility for most people is nil. There is a tendency to look outside rather than promote from within. The pay is typical for the industry, meaning it's low. There can be a lot of finger-pointing and bullying that is uncomfortable to witness.

    Pros

    Relax environment, nice co-workers, 401k match and good Heath benefit options including dental and vision. Vacation time decent for those who have been there for an extended time.

    Cons

    Low pay and with merger jobs (including mine) being eliminated. Environment very tense during merger. People are walking on pins and needles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with departments about the risk of losing jobs in merger
