    I worked at Phaidon Press for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people Travel to London office at least once per quarter Satisfactory benefits Excellent locations Top of the line technology - All Macs

    Cons

    The office culture is disjointed because the New York location is like the forgotten step child. The communication in real time is limited because of the 5 hour time difference.

    Advice to Management

    Offer the same benefits in the US that the UK enjoys

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Phaidon Press

    Pros

    This was one of my first jobs in publishing and you learn a lot about traditional publishing and art. The people are really nice but some are a little standoffish. Great HR manager.

    Cons

    It is a big company and sometimes the atmosphere was a little strange. No the ideal role for someone interested in literary or commercial publishing.

    Advice to Management

    Overall good experience.
