    I have been working at Wiley full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Stable, institutional company -- most colleagues have worked here (and/or within the publishing industry) 10-25 years; beautiful waterfront (Hudson River) view of Manhattan; supportive, honest, patient co-workers; challenging, fast-changing industry with persistent disruptions from Open Access/Open Science ...

    Cons

    Disconnect between inspirational CEO's vision, excited about prospects of innovative design thinking, and more mundane day-to-day objectives; Slow pace of web developers at recently-acquired Atypon's Literatum platform

    Advice to Management

    Celebrate the small *iterations* made day-to-day by digital product management as at least as valuable as the big-picture *innovations* of design sprints; hire more engineers at Atypon to allow for faster iterations.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Wiley full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The Boston office is home to a lot of great people who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. There's a great community, especially among the younger, early career people in the office. You get 20+ PTO days your first year, which is nice.

    Cons

    The title is a bit misleading. At Wiley, an "editorial" assistant and the higher level "editors" do only administrative and account/client management work. There is no editing involved, and the writing is limited to writing emails and proposals. They're up-front about that, but some who see the title and are looking for creative work might be a bit put-off. $32,000 salary is low--especially if you have loans and...

    Advice to Management

    Raise the salary. It goes a long way, I think, to look out for employees economically.

      I have been working at Wiley full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Love my team - my manager and reports. All are talented, competent, kind, hard-working. Really interesting and challenging work, plus lots of autonomy to figure out the best ways forward. Resources are sufficient to try new things. Improved communication about the company and division strategy has me feeling optimistic about our direction and ability to execute. Flexible work location and schedule.

      Cons

      Sometimes it’s *too* autonomous - more direction and timely support from directors / executives would be helpful. Everyone’s calendars are packed, so finding time for a conference call with anyone at director-level and above can take weeks - which means initiatives move slower than they should. Unhealthy conflict between teams sometimes creates a negative work environment. And insufficient accountability for long-time...

      Advice to Management

      Make yourselves more available to members of your organization so we can get input and decisions quickly, and carry initiatives forward more quickly. Or delegate more authority down. Reinforce the “culture values” we see a few times per year on powerpoints - my team pays attention to the behaviors and attitudes that leaders model. Support innovation and experimentation on an ongoing basis, not only when all lines are...
