    I worked at Simon & Schuster full-time

    Pros

    Pros are the people, the location, great benefits, competitive salaries in my specific department.
    If you have a good supervisor, your time there could be fruitful to your career and life.

    Cons

    Infrastructure is a little week. Sales department has more power than it should. CFO is marrried to a high ranking sales exec creating some imbalances.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Simon & Schuster (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online through career website, heard back in a week or two. Set up an in-person interview at the Rockefeller office for the following week. Interviewer very friendly. Since it was an internship interview I felt like a lot of the questions were more general and geared towards me as a person and how knowledgable I was about the company & imprints.
