I worked at Wiley full-time (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 a full schedule but still have time for your personal life. Opportunities for learning new things, but only at your specific job level.

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. Time-consuming computer systems. Often caustic upper-management personnel. Ambiguous company goals. Ageism/healthism: Older staff let go and replaced by 20 yr olds; many employees given bad reviews for health conditions or after death of partner/spouse/parents.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Evaluate your middle management and publishers for results (merit) rather than internal political reasons. Be honest with new workers: They will not advance if they are over 30 (somehow, young assistances do). Crack down on managers that micro-manage to make themselves feel better.

    I have been working at Wiley full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's close to home and I really enjoy the people I work with. The benefits are slightly above average and work hours can be flexible.

    Cons

    It's a big company and change can be very slow and painful. Corporate communications are not always timely or informative. There are no formal career pathways--individuals must find their own. The company can come off as a bit paternalistic, talking as if they're making decisions for the employee as if they were a child needing to be taken care of.
