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

Pros

Very supportive of employees with good benefits and flexible working hours and locations. Office locations in many locations give the opportunity to work with great colleagues worldwide. Very family-friendly.

Cons

All departments are experiencing turmoil right now as the company restructures and refocuses on its future as a digital content and service provider. Technology is behind the curve and trying to catch up quickly.

    I have been working at Wiley full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Generous vacation time, good medical benefits.

    Cons

    Cheapest company I've ever worked for. Requesting special office equipment (like a ruler or pencils) will get you a raised eyebrow and the runaround. No color copiers in the whole place (yes...this is supposedly a PUBLISHING company).They'll lay you off so they can pay freelancers even LESS than the cookies they pay in-house staff. Or they'll outsource your job. This company used to be the top of the educational publishing game, but now they're part of the problem, outsourcing American jobs to India. Those at the top don't seem to understand that the caliber of work will greatly decline when it's turned over to freelancers -- they simply can't and won't be held to the same standards as in-house staff. As a result, if Wiley is still even around in 10 years, I will be very surprised. I will be leaving as soon as possible.

    Advice to Management

    This road leads nowhere but to nonexistence. Drive a stake through it quickly and put it out of its misery.

    I have been working at Wiley full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have the benefit of perspective having worked for another large publishing company. What I like most about Wiley is the ability to work in both collaborative and autonomous environments (sounds contradictory, but it's not...certain situations require these different approaches), the opportunity to contribute; respect from my manager and peers; excellent teams with whom I work and manage; colleagues willingness to listen to new ideas.

    Cons

    Wiley systems can slow things down and create lots of frustration.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the best people, remove people who are no longer contributing or for whom the business has passed by. Remain open to new ideas.
