I have been working at Pomegranate Communications full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

At Pomegranate you get a chance to work with some really top-level people, and be involved in the world of art, culture, and education. There are many opportunities to learn more and to grow as a person. The workers are treated with dignity and respect.

Cons

At Pomegranate everyone is expected to work hard, always trying to improve and keep mistakes from happening. It's a pressure environment, and since a lot of money goes into making the products as good as possible, pay scales are not sky-high.

Advice to Management

Some workers expect more real-time direction (i.e. supervision) than is customary at Pomegranate. It can be confusing at times since Pomegranate expects everyone to be "on the ball" and to pick up workplace context in an ongoing way.

    I have been working at Pomegranate Communications full-time

    Pros

    low pressure, nice atmosphere, lots of art stuff, strong sense that management is determined to maintain reasonable standards of quality, fairly good transparency about the state of the company

    Cons

    low pay, minimal benefits, no room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Try to reward all employees with annual pay increases. Even a little bit would be good. Hold regular reviews and encourage employees to speak their minds at these moments: you might learn something valuable.

    Pros

    You get to work with art daily at a publisher with 50 years in the business. You'll discover artists you never heard of and get to learn a lot more about artists you already admire. It's good to work for a company that makes something worth keeping on your shelf. You also get to work with many different format, from books to puzzles to calendars and more. There's not many indie publishers left, and this is one of the best.

    Cons

    It's a bit far out from the Portland metro area, so the commute can be long depending on where you live.
