"Best Intern Experience"

I worked at Hachette Book Group as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Great program for interns that allows them to learn about all the different departments and positions at the company. Forms an overall picture of how publishing works. Office staff is very warm and helpful towards interns, willing to meet and have conversations.

Cons

Lots of interns every summer so arguably lots of competition to really stand out (but doesn't it work like that everywhere?). Also intern work is not the best (a lot of mailing or data entry, for example), but that's also how being an intern works, and the people who have real positions have to do those things too.

    I have been working at Hachette Book Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pretty stable job. The warehouse has never had a layoff. The warehouse does a pretty good job at keeping the temperature down in the summer.

    Cons

    Lower end of the pay scale, job growth potential is very low. Management doesn't relate or try to relate to the floor workers.

    I worked at Hachette Book Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The People!! Lots of tenure at HBG and plenty of friendly faces. The Boston office was around 200 employees while I was there but it never felt like it.

    Books!! Its not a requirement, but most people that work for HBG have a strong passion for publishing and books in one capacity or another. Since I left there my bookshelves have sadly dimished, haha. Authors would occasionally come into the Boston office - always fun!

    Benefits!! The company provides great benefit packages for their employees to choose from. Everything from the typical medical, dental, vision, 401k to other programs like backup childcare, matching gift donations to non profits/charities and tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Compensation - Publishing in general pays at the lower end of compensation. Although they try to make up for this in other benefits and ways it can be hard to not be disappointed.

    Career Development - The companie tries to offer career development opportunites whenever possible for internal employees, however since it is a relatively small company and many people stay for a long time (15-20-25+ yrs tenure!) movement is slow.
