Pros

Relaxed setting, friendly people, great work/life balance.

Cons

Projects are often limited due to budget constraints. Difficult to advance without switching divisions. The company is undergoing a massive reorganization right now and many people have been let go. Office morale is a little low right now.

    Pros

    the hoboken location is nice. some flexibility in work. journals division is strong. pearson education is building HQ a block away. may give wiley employees possibility of working for company that knows what it is doing.

    Cons

    global higher ed has done a bad job trying to transition into digital. technology upgrades have failed miserably: example: wileyplus v5- which lost millions--.

    Management team responsible for this still involved in new projects which are doing badly. As many current and former employees have said, "the atmosphere is toxic." leadership has no idea what platform to use for digital media; editorial direction is abysmal; entitled publishers who can't manage teams, but can put on good acts.editorial leadership is incompetent.

     massive reorganization to bolster stock. middle and upper management still in place, even though under their "leadership" global higher ed has done astoundingly bad. classical example of old boy network. moral is at an all time low. depressing atmosphere. given a chance, most employees would leave.

    Many LAZY editors who "work" from home fulltime, yet don't bother to engage with support staff in mature manner. Most arrogant publishers i've come across. they mask their incompetence by aggressive and rude behavior that only highlights their utter lack of management skill or emotional intelligence. In a word, working at Wiley is like watching Miley Cyrus at the VMAs: embarrassing and cringe worthy; and uttery unaware.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    board should sell global higher ed. fire editorial director in global higher ed. fire global higher ed director and his cronies. CEO while pleasant enough, inefficient.
