I have been working at Random House

Pros

Interning at Random House gave me the opportunity to network and (hopefully) get my foot in the door. I mostly read and evaluated manuscripts.

Cons

Unpaid. I often felt like my work wasn't very highly valued, and not a lot of thought was given to helping me learn about the industry and company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start a legitimate internship program that actually trains (and pays) your next generation of employees. The current system is exploitative and privileges the privileged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -keep the lines of communication clear and open with your employees. if you don't verbalize how you think their performance and work ethics are you can't expect your expectations to be met.

    Pros

    Random House has excellent benefits, competitive salaries, and employees who care. It's all around a great and intellectually stimulating place to work.

    Cons

    Corporate should be a little more clear and specific about company goals and performance. This transparency would better insure that everyone is on the same page.
