Have more meetings in the office so that people don't have to get into a car (auto) and drive to New Jersey

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Parragon Books full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Broad range of products to work across

    Cons

    Poor communication, poor staff treatment, poor rewards, poor salaries, expectation to do 10 hour days, lack of compassion, micro management, passive aggressive, senior managers are a bunch of bullies who reep all the perks that the teams below have given everything to push through and publish on time. Biggest staff turnover I have EVER seen and HR just do nothing about it.

    Advice to Management

    Forget the constant restructuring ... deal with the managers who are micromanaging egotistic bullies and stop sprinkling them with glitter. Only so much glitter you can spring on a four letter word not good!
