I have been working at Penguin Random House full-time (More than 3 years)
I respect the leadership; consistent cost of living raises every year; PRH's size means there's a lot of best-in-industry analytics and support
With little turn over, there isn't much room for advancement within the same department. However, there are good opportunities if you're willing to change teams.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Penguin Random House (New York, NY) in February 2015.
I had a phone call with the HR person, and then went in to meet the person I would be reporting to. She gave me a writing assignment for a title. Then I met with some more senior people at a second interview. Overall, it took about three weeks. Even though some imprints can be casual, make sure to dress sharply, have a notebook, and come prepared with questions of your own.
