Featured Review

Current Freelancer - Book Jacket Designer

I have been working at Cambridge University Press for more than 10 years

Pros

Interesting titles/subjects and working with a collegial staff.

Cons

Fees could be somewhat better.

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Palgrave Macmillan full-time

Pros

Excellent community, surrounded by intelligent hard working people committed to academic publishing. Great location, good reputation, room to move up, supportive services, working with strong authors.

Cons

The recent merger with Springer has caused a bit of unsettlement, with new systems being introduced, but also provided new opportunities. Lots of turnaround, which seems common in the industry,... workload can be quite intense, but also interesting.
