    Skyhorse has a comprehensive benefits package, which includes (but is not limited to) the following: early dismissals on Summer Fridays (equivalent to 2.5 additional PTO days each year), early dismissals before holidays, monthly bagel Fridays, above-average PTO/sick days for publishing industry, 401K matching, generous maternity leave, pre-tax commuter deductions, etc. The list goes on and on; and gets larger every year. While I know Skyhorse has been transparent and honest regarding the shortcomings of its benefits package in years past, it's clear that management took employees' criticisms and suggestions to heart - having implemented dozens of new benefits offerings in the last few years with no signs of stopping.

    In June 2016, Skyhorse added a 401k program. But they don't tell you how much they plan to match until the end of the calendar year. In 2016 and 2017, it was up to half of what you put in, up to 3% -- so if you put in 3%, they put in 1.5%. But you didn't know what they were going to do until the end of the year, which is horrible if you're trying to save seriously. First-year employees get ten paid time off days a year, which includes sick, personal, and vacation days. Second-year get fifteen paid time off days a year. Otherwise, benefits are pretty much the legal minimum, which the company presents as if very generous, and they tell employees frequently how much it costs them. (People, under the Affordable Care Act companies of Skyhorse's size are *required* to offer employees health insurance!) Other benefits, particularly work from home days, are given to employees arbitrarily -- to some and not others, depending on how well-liked they are by their managers and how well-liked their managers are by the publisher. Same with if you need flexible hours -- some employees get it, others don't.

    Health insurance was adequate. No 401K when I was there (last year was 2016). Now that Skyhorse is for sale I've no idea what the status is.

    Skyhorse has been offering a 401k plan since 2016. Various other benefits, including life insurance, summer hours, and days off between Christmas and New Years, have also been added. Skyhorse doesn't... More

    This is a growing company with lots of opportunity for people looking to get into the publishing industry.

    Benefits have improved. They recently added a gym benefit, summer Fridays, and the week between Christmas and New Years off. I think they're thinking about 401k which would be nice.

    The best things are the newly guaranteed Christmas break and the new transit / commuter benefits.

    salary and vacation time are both laughable (five days off, no time off during holidays at the entry-level position)

    Skyhorse Publishing Response

    We appreciate your feedback. Our vacation policy was indeed a bit rigid and outdated, particularly for new employees. We have consequently updated our policy to allow for more flexibility and to give... More

    There was no benefits package as an intern. So although this question requires me to write at least 20 words, I really can't add more to what I just said.

    The best thing is that if you actually do the work, it will be rewarded by solid benefits that makes sense for the person in question. The worst is that it takes a while for that to actualize. The benefits package is fair and takes into account what any given person needs to be able to comfortably complete the task.
