    I have been working at Random House full-time

    Pros

    They have excellent benefits and paid time off.

    Cons

    There are constant deadlines to be met, and you never quite feel like you measure up to their standards no matter how hard you try. You also get very little feedback or positive things said about you. There are so many things to be done, and never enough time to do them.

    Advice to Management

    Give more feedback and let your employees know when they are doing a good job.
