More Pros and Cons

  1. "Great company"

    I have been working at Wiley full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -The culture that they have cultivated in the work place is great, I like everyone I work with
    -The amount of paid holidays are great, and I like that there are a few opportunities for overtime
    -I feel the company is caring with employees, during and after the hurricane there were several accommodations made

    Cons

    -The department that I work in is still relatively new and there is room for improvement, the position can be boring and I feel that there is a decent level of micromanagement. I think in time, this position may develop, but as for now, these are my main concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Take advice from the team. I feel like many of us have ideas to improve the position, but we have not been given an outlet.

    I worked at Wiley (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and salary, if you're one of those people willing to sell your self-worth for those things.

    Cons

    Literally everything. Everyone is in the same boat of misery and exhaustion of being overworked, underappreciated, and micromanaged, yet having an opinion will get you fired. There is no room to grow in the company unless you are a male, preferably without children. The jobs themselves require little talent and have become automated and scripted, much like that of a for-profit environment which Deltak used to pridefully rise above. I have never seen a company turn so quickly with such a lack of loyalty to follow suit with the absurd changed.

    Advice to Management

    Turn back before it's too late. If Wiley wanted a for-profit environment, it should have bought a for-profit organization instead of a growing mid-size business focused on doing things different for the sake of integrity within higher education. I am quite positive every single individual in management checked their integrity at Wiley's door as the ink dried on the acquisition.
