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

Pros

Very welcoming and friendly environment.
You can take free books home.
A very thorough and well thought out program for interns that really helps give you great insight on the industry and the various departments.
You truly learn a lot about the industry.
You never know who you will run into.

Cons

As an intern, I didn't really find anything to complain about. Maybe it can depend on which department you're working in.

    Pros

    The people are really friendly, good benefits and vacation time as well as great books.

    Cons

    There is a lot of lack of communication. HBG is a lot of chiefs and not enough Indians, all upper management and little to no mid level or lower level employees. Most departments are heavily under staffed while managers sit in meetings all day. Promotions and salary increases are nonexistent for lower level employees but if your upper management sure here's more money. The company consistently boost about retaining talent but they aren't willing to promote and grow their employees to retain the talent. There has been a huge turnover rate with more and more people leaving everyday. When I first started here I was really happy because of the work environment but nice coworkers only go so far and with all this low moral it's just not a good place anymore.
