    I worked at Taunton Press full-time

    Pros

    Good products. Good work-life balance. Generally positive and progressive culture.

    Cons

    Classic "not what you know, but who you know" environment. Political connections supersede achievements.

    Advice to Management

    Run the business as a meritocracy, not an aristocracy that rewards patronage at the expense of innovation.

    Interview

    Easy and nice, HR is quite helpful, coordination is bad through because they have multiple locations, managers are usually very busy so have to change schedule multiple times. Questions asked is very related to the area that they are hiring for so they pretty know what they are looking.
