    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...

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

      Pros

      With a reduction in the number of books targeted for publishing this year and into next, we have a steady and less stressful flow of work. Of course, challenges remain, but the array of titles is always interesting. It’s unfortunate that the company had to restructure earlier in the year and was forced to let go of some staff. The results though are more chances to get to know one another, and so more camaraderie at...

      Cons

      I’ve read through past reviews here trying to assess whether the major cons raised in them are valid today. I honestly can say that I don’t think so. Of course, there's always room for improvement, so the company needs to stay on its toes.

      Advice to Management

      Keep those lines of communication with all staff open.
