I have been working at Wiley full-time (More than 3 years)
Wiley has the same work week hours and days off when you first start as the people of Denmark. Denmark has been ranked as the happiest place on earth by several international polls, due to their work/life balance. In an American company, it is so refreshing to find a company that believes you need a personal life, and gives you the time off to have it.
I also have lucked into a team that has been so welcoming and supportive. I have a great supervisor and am excited about being part of my team.
I don't feel like there is enough collaboration within our team. Everyone works pretty independently. I feel more team reviews of work would encourage conversation and bring about even better and stronger ideas.
The office is located in a suburban office park out in a field. No walkability to anything. It would be so great to be located within the city.
Advice to Management
Wiley reimburses college tuition which is fantastic. I would love to see a policy that opens the doors to some of the code schools and boot camps that don't fall into the category of a college but are great training for these skills at a lower cost.
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.
