    I worked at Penny Publications full-time

    Pros

    Very stable job with little to no sudden changes or shifting priorities. Standard 9-5, one hour for lunch, 19 days for sick/PTO which is left up to your discretion. Flexible with schedules. Telecommuting potential. Smart and mature coworkers. Yearly evaluations with 3% raise. Bonus near the holidays + profit share bonus in the spring.

    Cons

    Little room for advancement; salary on the lower end.

    Doesn't Recommend

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

    Pros

    Colleagues are pretty friendly. There is always a lot of work to do, so you are never bored. There are often opportunities to assist colleagues on other projects and publications. The only job I've had with Christmas bonuses and profit sharing.

    Cons

    The office is quieter than a library. More responsibilities does not mean more money, or a career advancement. When an employee leaves, he or she is usually not replaced, and the work is shuffled around to existing employees. There is no room for advancement. You can go days without speaking to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Consistent feedback is always appreciated.
