    I have been working at Skyhorse Publishing full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    As has been noted in many comments throughout this site, Skyhorse is in a constant state of accelerated growth and change, requiring all who work here to bring our best game to the company in exchange for opportunities of increased salaries and responsibilities that come with riding this bull. I came here from one of the big publishing firms, where the environment was less intense and much less interesting, and the...

    Cons

    Still a hell of a lot of work. Do I have other critiques? Of course, but I've addressed them to our management and CEO and they're being dealt with. I'm writing more as a nod to this company that I've grown to respect.

    I worked at Skyhorse Publishing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I used to work at Skyhorse and still continue to work in the publishing industry. I had a good opportunity to look back at my time at the company after having been invited recently to their 10th Anniversary party. The opening speech by Abigail Gehring really gave a good overview, through her experience, of what the company is like. Here's a woman who started out ten years ago knowing nothing about publishing, and today...

    Cons

    As I've said, the pace was very fast – at times, clearly too fast.

    Advice to Management

    Don't assume that everyone can keep up with YOUR expectations.

    Thank you for your comments. We think this review gives potential Skyhorse employees a reasonable idea of life at Skyhorse. There are great opportunities, but the pace is fast. For the right people, Skyhorse can be an incredible experience, but for others it can be a bit too much. ...
