A fantastic company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

ProsThis company hires intelligent, team-oriented people to make the best books in the industry. People are trusted to do the job they are hired to do; there is not a lot of micromanaging. They encourage creativity.

ConsNot really a con, but because there are not a lot of middle management or filler positions, each employee is responsible for more than they would be at other publishing houses .

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
