    I worked at Lerner Publishing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a great place to learn the basics about publishing, and Lerner does produce some really amazing books. Things can get hairy when it's time to wrap up the season, but the overall work/life balance is pretty good.

    Cons

    Compensation is terrible. There also aren't very many opportunities for advancement, and any attempt at professional development is on your own dime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have some really amazing and talented people on staff. If you encourage them to grow professionally and support such endeavors, you will reap the rewards instead of your competitors.

    I worked at Lerner Publishing full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great experience for new grads looking to get into book publishing. I learned basic, office-y admin skills and exposure to online marketing.

    Cons

    Difficult to move up the ladder. Marketing is isolated. Lots of long-timers who are technology-averse. Definitely heard "we should be on Facebook" more than once (when we were, in fact, on Facebook.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should listen more. Encourage and develop up-and-comers.

    Pros

    Take the time to help you understand your job especially if a new grad
    everyone shoulders the load evenly
    When you are done with your day you are done with your day there
    the company always puts your personal and family life first.

    Cons

    Marketing always seems to be an island on to its own self.
    Never huge raises.
    Its great they keep people forever but sometimes the older employees seem less than willing to learn new Technologies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont pit your staff against each other, and take the time to tell people they are doing a great job.
