Pros

Wiley employs some great, talented people.

Cons

Once a great American company that treated its employees with respect, Wiley has become solely profit-oriented. This is largely because it was too slow to react to the changing realities of the publishing industry — ebooks, social media, etc. — and so now is making massive structural changes within the company. Because of these changes, the large number of layoffs and the quality people jumping ship... to say Wiley is currently in turmoil is not an understatement.

    I worked at Wiley full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people, hands down. Intelligent, hard-working, helpful. My first 10 years at Wiley were idyllic--but I know now that was largely due to the group I worked in and my manager. It was collaborative, fun, and everyone worked toward a common goal.

    Cons

    The "restructuring and reinvestment" means that many talented, experienced people are being laid off while more and more "director" positions are created. Large chunks of departments were simply deleted, leaving those employees remaining to hold up a staggeringly heavy load.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication about plans with employees--more specific and less business-speak. Also, treat employees being let go with more respect. Mention their actual names when announcing new structural changes, instead of leaving everyone to gossip and guess at who got let go this time.
