I have been working at Penguin Random House full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I've had a wonderful experience and have learned a lot. In terms of the industry this is the absolute best there is. I feel like issues here are related more to the industry than RH.

Cons

Compensation needs to be higher. They are a large company they can manage.

    I have been working at Penguin Random House full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, vacation, holiday and personal time are very good. Work environment could be better but I would not consider it bad. Things are changing fast and it seems mostly for the better so it could be a very exciting time to be an employee of this new merged company

    Cons

    Pay rates are not the best and bonuses are hardly anything. Large company so change can be counterproductive at times and flexibility is not possible like in a smaller company

    Advice to Management

    Demand more from management and value the employees more. The workers are smarter than they are given credit for and have many good ideas to improve efficiency and really understand the nuts and bolts of how things work so lots of problems could be prevented had someone talked to the workers about the tasks they perform because often they knew what was going to happen given a change in proceedures.
