I worked at Macmillan Publishers full-time (More than 10 years)
Nice people, no drama, upbeat executive team. Good for long-term. Great office (One NY Plaza) and location. Environmental conciousness at least from the top. Friendly atmosphere with plenty of work (no goofing off) but not so pressured that you can't do your work in a reasonable workflow.
Industry pressure has caused a lot of staff reduction in last months. Disorganized. No room for career growth in Info Tech areas. Always been lower pay than other industries.
Advice to Management
Develop your staff. Hang on to executives - they are top-notch.
I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Macmillan Publishers (New York, NY) in January 2017.
I sent my resume through the website, and heard back in about a week and a half. The interview itself was average. Because I was going for a part time position, I was contacted by HR and asked for a personal interview.
My interviewer was polite and very much went straight into my resume and asked me personal resume-specific questions. She was honest and told me another person was going to be interviewed for the position. My experience in person was overall unique, because in the middle of my interview there was a building-wide fire drill. I don't believe this effected my interview too harshly but it was quite distracting, despite the fact we were in a conference room.
After my interview I was asked for my references through email and I heard nothing for 2 and a half weeks. I had to email them asking for a follow up to then tell me I did not get the position. Apparently, they are notorious for this I hear.
The overall process I found to be a little sloppy. It wasn't negative, but I wish the communication was a little better post-interview.
