No opinion of CEO

I worked at HarperCollins as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Everyone was friendly and genuinely cared about my learning. As a first internship in college, it was overall a good learning experience - got to learn the ins and outs of publicity for publishing. After a few months I was also given some more responsibility in my tasks, e.g. pitching bloggers. Also: free books!

Cons

Unpaid, no stipend, no potential for/promise of full time employment in future. Also, some days I worked entirely on menial tasks, e.g. book mailings.

    Pros

    The people are friendly and location is great, near Embarcadero Center for lunch and shopping.

    Cons

    Online publishing budget constraints require them to hire either seniors or interns.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new grads who need experience and train them on the job.
