    - High growth - Rewarding work that makes a difference in someone's life - Awesome schools signing as partners - Flexible working environment - Excellent benefits to include great vacation policy

    Cons

    - Not so much a con, but the organization is navigating transitions within Wiley and scaling operations within the division - this is just change, not a con

    Good company, but culture change putting company on a dangerous path

    Jun 26, 2015 - Program Manager in Oak Brook, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Young, energetic, intelligent and professional employees. - Flexible schedules. - up to 24 PTO (plus holidays) off - strong salary and excellent insurance - unique growth options (admissions/sales into operations, HR, marketing, business/corp development, client outreach, media services, ID) - good middle management and excellent executive leadership

    Cons

    - Culture slowly from one of employee growth to fiscal growth focus, making it harder to buy into the job. It has caused recent turnover on the admissions and marketing teams. - The company has not been able to appropriately scale growth. Some of the goals across various departments have become nearly unachievable. - interview process is 4-7 interviews that can take 6 weeks to 4 months.

    Bad experience from the beginning

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Benefits are good - health insurance, 401k matching, excellent PTO, flexible, etc. The people you work with are generally fun to be around and good at what they do.

    Cons

    Taking a position in the marketing department is taking a step back in time about five years. The technology and innovation at Wiley isn't up with the times. The only way they will keep up to date is of Google forces them to do so by mandating updates, like mobile friendly sites. Good ideas by marketing staff are turned down by upper management because they don't have time to deal with them. A/B testing is frowned upon because it's too much work for the creative teams. Upper management makes decisions based on direction from Wiley to scale the business, but doesn't consult the marketing staff on the negative effects of their decisions. Marketing plans tend to be changed constantly without notice.

    Pros

    Great people, everyone is dedicated and works to move the company forward. Wonderful opportunties for growth. The company is expanding and promotes from within Cutting Edge - this is a group that strives to be one step ahead. Positive: everyone has something nice to say!

    Cons

    Some egos from upper management. A few people are territorial and want to hold on to their position even though there might be others who could do the job better

    Good place but how they scale the business remains to be seen....

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good culture and work environment, especially for working families. I feel I am paid slightly above average and enjoy what I do.

    Cons

    Majority of middle management is coming in from the outside. Sold to Wiley 18 months ago and rapid growth is expected, now that certain policies and procedures are in place they are losing the culture they once regarded so highly. There are a few 'cancers' within the organization in Sr level management that continue to grow with no accountability.

    Pros

    You get a chance to work with people who are not just intelligent and capable, but friendly, positive, and caring. Superb culture and collaborative environment. Flexible work conditions which allow individuals to produce their best work.

    Cons

    The company is rapidly growing, so it is hard to find time and space to share ideas across the company. The onboarding could be improved. Teams can get silo-ed.

    Great place to work

    Pros

    If you want to work for a company that is working on the forefront of technology and education, this is the place. Wiley Education Solutions (formerly Deltak) works with some of the most prestigious Universities in the US. The best part about working here is the culture. Everyone has a passion for the business and they've created a solid work environment that is centered around positivity, collaboration, performance, and work life balance. Annual review process works in your favor if you are someone that performs, lucrative annual salary increase.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be difficult to understand how our business unit fits into the Wiley organization. Continued education to current employees is necessary.

    Great company, if you're in the right position...

    Apr 4, 2014 -

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The culture is upbeat and there are a lot of younger (25-35) people working in the company to keep the energy going. Benefits are good and PTO is good, even for new hires. The problem is finding time to take the PTO. It's a great company to work for if you're looking for non-commissioned sales.

    Cons

    Management is hit or miss. Since the company is growing so rapidly, there's a crunch to hire and quality people are not always hired. If you're put under management that is willing to go to bat for you then you'll get promoted. If you are stuck with a newbie then you may be out of luck. Also, if you don't network and get to know upper management then you'll have a tough time getting promoted also (they need to know your name). The focus is very Admissions driven so there is a great career path for anyone in Admissions but not much for everyone else in the company.
