I worked at Perseus Books Group full-time (More than 8 years)
Once upon a time, Perseus Books Group was a fun, innovative, up-by-the-boot-straps amalgam of book publishers and book distribution services companies; modest pay, dedicated employees, non-heirarchical, not-too-corporate 'speak-your-mind' structure, successfully publishing good books with much esprit-de-corps despite jerry-rigged infrastructure, undercapitalized systems, and understaffed overwhelmed departments. Then the goals of management shifted to selling the whole thing to someone else, and ultimately did. Publishing units were bought by Hachette; distribution services to Ingram; and Perseus Books Group is no more. RIP.
Perseus Books Group is no more.
Advice to Management
Fare thee well.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Perseus Books Group (Philadelphia, PA).
Applied online. Phone interview with HR in another state followed by phone interview with someone else in Boston followed by two separate in-person interviews in the Philadelphia office. They called all my references. After all that jumping through hoops I did not even get the courtesy of a call or email to notify me that they hired someone else.
