Culture has changed immensely.

Professional (Former Employee)
Hoboken, NJ

I worked at Wiley full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat people can still be found, a legacy of what once was. If you have a passion for publishing and are interested in an evolving industry, you'll find it all here.

ConsThe realignment of the organization has resulted in disgruntled, unhappy, workers unsure of what's next. Business as usual only works for those who have career stability. Hard workers are not valued nor distinguished. Only the top-tier old boys club are recognized for a job well done. Everyone else just gets the same 2% increase year after year and you're told to be grateful you still have a job. Systems are old and cumbersome. Change is slow and regular layoffs abound.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a good hard look around. If it wasn't for all the colleagues working tirelessly to keep the company afloat all the VPs and Directors wouldn't look so good. Distinguish high performers and get rid of the leaders who are not effective.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Miss the people, not the stress.

Editor (Former Employee)
Indianapolis, IN

I worked at Wiley full-time for more than 10 years


Pros: The local office was great, with caring and conscientious people. Generous benefits and time off. Depending on the manager, you could work… Cons: The pros are how it used to be. Due to constant layoffs, old culture is gone. Some managers overworked you (50-60hr/wk). No opportunities for advancement.… Advice to Senior Management: Evaluate your middle management and publishers for results (merit) rather than internal political reasons. Be honest with new workers: They will… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
