Ambitious Family-owned publisher with an interesting business niche

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsWork/life balance is very good with normal hours, on-site restaurant and cool learning opportunities (classes in woodworking, cooking, marketing etc.). They pay well enough for the area. Taunton is doing decently in a tough industry/economy and, while not a household name, is respected in the publishing world for high quality products.

ConsNot really in the NYC/lower faifield county orbit. Small company with many long-term employees makes for a close environment (maybe that's a plus for some?).
