I have been working at Wiley full-time
Honestly, I don't understand the negative reviews except to say that the job and opportunities are based on what you deliver, along with a positive attitude. There are a few people in the office that just won't ever be happy, and it has nothing to do with the company - and I feel sorry for them.. The work is very interesting, and there are lots of opportunities to get involved in projects, collaboration or community events.. The people are fantastic (and most love their job), the wage is solid, and the benefits are great (based on experience with many other companies). There are plenty of opportunities to meet people and get involved in community service or fun days.
There's a lot of change happening. Work loads feel heavy right now. Promotions don't come as often as they did in the past. Location (Oak Brook) isn't great for people who live in Chicago.
Advice to Management
Management is always listening and interested in hearing ideas on how things can improve, then they implement when they can. That says a lot, and should continue.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Wiley.
Submit resume and writing sample. Received an email and then follow-up call requesting video interview. Interview consisted of written question with one minute to read, then recorded your 2-minute response. Interview consisted of six questions, none of which were "standard" questions (e.g., strength/weakness, why the company/role). Received canned rejection letter with no interview feedback or indication that letter was personally written/addressed.
