    I worked at Globe Pequot full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Globe Pequot Press, which owns Lyons Press, GPP, Falcon Guides, Two Dot, is made up of a very good bunch of people who oversee lots of talent and great brands. People worked hard and created great books, but in addition to uncertain management, sales was always a problem.

    Cons

    Under Morris Communications, management was weak and indecisive. With new owners, Rowman & Littlefield, management seems a bit overbearing and demanding. Everybody, from the lowest level to the managers feel burdened with rigid new procedures and lots of paperwork. Hopefully a livable balance will develop between the procedures and rules R&L has developed as owners of many tiny publishing companies and what needs to happen with this largest-by-far of their acquisitions, which won't necessarily flourish under rules created for companies of one or two people.

    Advice to Management

    Ease up and get to know the employees as people/individuals.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Globe Pequot (Guilford, CT) in November 2016.

    Interview

    HR seemed very disorganized, asked for the same information twice. Standard interview questions. Hiring Manager asked very few questions.

    No follow up from HR on status / next steps. It just takes a moment to be courteous & send a quick "thank you for your interest" email even if there is no job offer.

    The whole process left a bad impression of the company.
