    I worked at Cell Press full-time

    Pros

    My colleagues were extremely professional, brilliant, and always friendly.

    Cons

    Compensation is in line with publishing (read: not wonderful) and the benefits packages got consistently worse over the years. Then again, this seems to be a trend across most American businesses.

    Assistant Editor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Cell Press (Cambridge, MA) in June 2018.

    Interview

    The first stage is a set of editing exercises via email. They gave me about a week to work on it. Ranging from critiquing published papers, editing manuscripts and commissioning reviews. Then I had an hour long phone interview with typical questions. A week later I was invited for an in-house interview that lasted most of the day. The in-house interview also included a manuscript test, and another one-hour long panel-interview

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of Typical behavioral interview questions (strengths; describe a situation where you had to deal with conflict, etc. etc.)   Answer Question
    • Not unexpected, but I had to show enthusiasm for the position, and sort of convince them I wasn't looking for just a way out of my postdoc   Answer Question
