Pros

If you get into a segment you like with good managers you will learn alot They vale innovation. Flexible.

Cons

Consultants everywhere have made quite a mess. Bad disjointed systems with seemingly terrible plans to offshore service and support. Politics and painful beauracracy permeate all levels -- very hard to make headway.

Advice to Management

Leadership teams should make am effort to know the teams they lead. More women should be given senior roles.

    Pros

    Not that long ago, Wiley was an outstanding company to work for. It used to be transparent, employee-focused, and guided by a clear and compelling mission. With luck and a change in attitude and engagement by the leadership, it will be that once again.

    Cons

    The company is in major turmoil. Despite two years of analysis by consulting firms and a much-vaunted plan to remake the company for the new era in publishing, there seems to be no clear vision. After dismantling teams and processes and imposing untested new procedures in many areas at once, the leadership now seems to have abandoned those employees who remain to somehow make things work.

    Advice to Management

    How about reading some of the books Wiley itself publishes on change management, employee engagement, etc.? You listened to the consultants; now listen to (and communicate with) your employees who know the work best. Unless you do something to improve morale and give your people a reason to feel engaged and part of the company, Wiley's future will be at risk, no matter how ingenious the secret corporate strategy.
