    Pros

    The company culture is great and it feels very much like the company actually cares about its employees.

    Cons

    Publishing as a whole is a low-pay industry, but it feels extra insulting when working at the top publishing house in the world still doesn't pay you enough to live comfortably in NYC. Many divisions are run by bad managers that have been with the company for many years and are unwilling to change and adapt to new policies and technologies.
