    I worked at Sunset Publishing

    Pros

    The people at Sunset are caring and kind. There is a very warm atmosphere. Departments try to help each other. The editorial staff is very creative and talented.

    Cons

    There are high expectations, but the resources aren't usually there to make new initiatives easy (or possible at all) to implement. This causes the staff to be overworked and stressed a lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more resources on extending the brand online.
