    I worked at Image Comics as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Loved working with a variety of professionals and being a part of the amazing books that they published.

    Cons

    There is no HR department. Any complaints about harassment or working conditions were ignored. No one to go to if you had problems with an Image Partner. They circle the wagons and push you out if you dare to bring up a complaint. More than once I heard a partner refuse to publish someone's book (internally) because the creator dared to publicly disagree with them on politics, or something else that had nothing to do with the quality of the book itself. Creators have been encouraged to shun past staff on social media or risk their book getting cancelled. The accounting is shady...very rarely do creators get monthly statements on how their books are selling (they were never sent out while I was there, unless the books were scheduled to be destroyed for not selling).

    Advice to Management

    Get a Human Resources Department at Image Central that covers all of TMP, Top Cow, Skybound and Shadowline. Just because creators are contracted doesn't mean you aren't responsible for how they're being treated, and your staff, while small, is too scared to bring any complaints up for fear of repercussions.

    Pros

    Great people, fun culture and products, great benefits

    Cons

    Long hours expected, office politics in this small company can be stressful, not a great place for someone with a family to work

    Advice to Management

    Management is in need of training on best practices for personnel management and employment law.
