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

Pros

I got a broad range of exposure across a couple of very different departments.

They're willing to give those who show initiative a great deal of responsibility.

People are very friendly and welcoming.

Cons

Sometimes the work (and this is true of any internship) is mundane. You can overcome this by asking for more responsibility and speaking up if you're not happy. They are very receptive and will listening to what you have to say.

Stipend is negligible.

You are unlikely to land a job after an internship.

    I have been working at Penguin Group full-time

    Pros

    The president, CEO, CFO, and all the people up at the top are very into promoting the Penguin logo and boosting Penguin work moral. Its inspiring and fun. The people that work here are mostly friendly and great to be with. The company provides a lot of great perks.

    Cons

    Big company means you're just another asset. They try to show they care, but they don't really know who you are...really.

    Advice to Management

    Get the employees to annually review their superiors.
