I worked at Wiley full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Wiley employs some great, talented people.

Cons

Once a great American company that treated its employees with respect, Wiley has become solely profit-oriented. This is largely because it was too slow to react to the changing realities of the publishing industry — ebooks, social media, etc. — and so now is making massive structural changes within the company. Because of these changes, the large number of layoffs and the quality people jumping ship... to say Wiley is currently in turmoil is not an understatement.

    Several rounds of layoffs are too much to bear for current employees.

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

    Pros

    For the most part, the employees are intelligent, hardworking, committed, and collegial.

    Cons

    The restructure has resulted in many layoffs and extremely low morale. The company's corporate culture has dramatically changed (for the worse).

    Advice to Management

    Long term success will not prevail if management continues to show such little regard for the company's human resources. Many talented employees were let go or quit in order to pursue better opportunities elsewhere.
