    Positive Outlook

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Palgrave Macmillan (New York, NY) in December 2012.

    Interview

    I was temping at Palgrave for a few months and was then asked to apply for a permanent position by my boss. My interview process was a little unorthodox as I had already been working there and knew the person interviewing me so they already knew that I was a hard worker, willing to put in extra hours when necessary.
