    Pros

    Good publishing industry experience. Nice renovated office space.

    Cons

    Terrible pay, expensive and mediocre insurance, poorly treated employees, apparently gives fake employee reviews (under no circumstances is this a five-star employer). Some employees can get away with coming into work drunk every Monday (or Tuesday, because they couldn't make it in on Monday), while others get reprimanded for looking the wrong way. Much depends on your manager. But in my experience, management was condescending and treated professional, educated people like children. Issues never got resolved, so it was a miserable place to work. The pay is fine if you're right out of college and don't mind having a roomie. You cannot survive on the pay otherwise. They seem unable to do anything to increase employee morale. All management does is take away anything positive, especially since Penguin Random House sold the company to an investment company (which promptly laid off a third of the employees in Bloomington and significantly increased cost of insurance and removed 401k matching. In effect, employees took a significant pay cut on already poor pay. And they're forcing employees to clock in and out exactly on the hour (removing a minor perk). The only remotely positive thing here is experience.
