    I worked at Skyhorse Publishing full-time

    Pros

    You may get lucky and work on a rare decent book. If you're entry-level, this may be a good networking opportunity since half the company is ran on the backs of younger hires, who may remember you later.

    Cons

    Please understand: every single 5-star review is fake. Basically every new employee is forced to leave one. The management saw negative Glassdoor reviews as an existential problem, and has invested major resources to rectify it--they would never put this much work into anything inside the company, however. If that's not a major red flag, I don't know what is. Don't believe the hype about "the fastest growing...

    Advice to Management

    I don't think the management is interested in any advice, so I won't waste time giving it.

    This review is unfair. In reality, the Outlook is Positive. Skyhorse is looking forward to an exciting year ahead despite challenges in the publishing industry. The workplace is dynamic and professional. No employee, new or veteran, has ever been “forced” to write a review. This reviewer ...

    I have been working at Skyhorse Publishing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are a lot of moving parts in any company, and staff are supposed to ensure that those moving parts function smoothly. The entire operation can be tested when stakes and pressure are highest, and deadlines critically loom. We at Skyhorse had the opportunity to experience very high stakes, pressure, and deadlines recently when the Mueller Report was released on Thursday, April 18th, and Skyhorse was in a race with...

      I worked at Skyhorse Publishing full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Summer Fridays! Free Bagels. The office is super close to Penn Station. 9 to 5:30 work week.

      Cons

      It felt a lot like high school... Turnover like you wouldn't believe. Somehow, and I'm not sure how or why.... but apparently working 2 years as an assistant qualifies you to jump to a manager position with little to no managing experience. This place is quite the giggle when it comes to hiring and firing. In the time that I was there the entire publicity department quit, a new team was hired, and then shortly...
