"Great company"Nov 12, 2019

Current Employee - Software Engineer

I have been working at Wiley full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great company and always a pleasure to work with a broad variety of people

Cons

No Cons, the company is fantastic!

Former Employee - Assistant Production Editor

I worked at Penguin Random House full-time for more than a year

Pros

The company culture is great and it feels very much like the company actually cares about its employees.

Cons

Publishing as a whole is a low-pay industry, but it feels extra insulting when working at the top publishing house in the world still doesn't pay you enough to live comfortably in NYC. Many divisions... are run by bad managers that have been with the company for many years and are unwilling to change and adapt to new policies and technologies.
