      Great Company - Poor Management

      Pros

      The company itself is great, but certain segments are a mess. Good benefits.

      Cons

      Management likes to point fingers but doesn't actually do anything themselves, but still take credit for things as if they did it themselves.

      Racist and bully culture

      Pros

      Good office, good benefits... nice cafeteria, nice location

      Cons

      The company is on its way down - they kept talking about transforming and when they get any proposal to transform they developed cold feet. What is worst -There are a few old-timers of a certain color who would demean subordinates, tell disrespectful things about your race... tell you inappropriate stuff outside of the office... and then when you complaint then they will do a staged investigation and then tell you the person concern declined having done such behavior...(what else did they expect??) if you are a colored individual and in the tech team - would would be fine, anywhere else you may encounter these bullies and their peers and bosses are afraid of them... so stay away... or join and shut up...

      Thanks for the review. I can assure you that Wiley takes any and all accusations of racism, bullying, and other violations of business and social conduct seriously. We maintain high expectations about professional and person conduct, and our policies and practices are prominently available from the company intranet. We also maintain a confidential hotline for employee complaints in addition to rigorous investigation process. It benefits nobody - especially the company - to foster or tolerate anti-social behavior.

      Company that has lost its way...

      Pros

      Wiley family. There are lots of good people here, but those are dwindling. Good benefits, but getting worse by the year.

      Cons

      Culture of layoffs, not opportunity as it once was. No career conversations happen. It's just get the annual review paperwork done. Weak leadership. They have gutted organizations to the point that work will not get done to the detriment of customers and staff who rely on this work. Poor communication-->people or groups of people come and go and you find out this kind of information accidentally. All about money...recent T&E policy reflects growing gap between executive team and rest of organization. Technology is grim. And if you love a place where you go through 2 or more Dell laptops per year. If you like an environment with no heart or soul, this is the company for you!

      One of the better companies to work for in book publishing; its flaws are typical of the book biz

      Pros

      Company is relatively secure financially at a time when many publishers are struggling; has some concern for the well-being of its employees; good benefits esp. by publishing standards; pay is above average for the industry

      Cons

      There's really no place to go in terms of advancement. Entry-level positions may move up a notch or two (they have in my group), but once you move up a little to more mid-range position you're pretty much stuck for life. What you're doing at 30 or 35 is pretty much what you'll be doing when you're 60. Management is civil but cool and distant--there's a very strict pecking order. I don't expect them to be my new best friends but they're so remote it's a bit creepy, almost robotic. Pay isn't great, esp. by metro NY standards, but book publishing is a low-paying industry that's gotten away with it for decades. So I give them credit, but the bar's been set rather low by the industry.

      Being flexible and giving employees the ability to have a life outside of work is important for both the person and the company. Thanks for writing!

      Great company that lost direction

      Pros

      good benefits great location on the waterfront in Hoboken nice colleagues

      Cons

      Initiative and hard work are not respected. There is lots of politics involved. Incompetence and mediocrity are wide spread. You can get hurt just by trying to do your job. The company is fragmented, there are many different groups and departments with many directors, some of them with couple or few people beneath them. Because of this collaboration is almost non-existent and projects fail or last for years. Due to these inefficiencies and market conditions the company is going through a restructuring or I would say downsizing. The senior management tried to promote this as a positive change by throwing around lots of buzz words, but for employees I doubt anything has changed but the names of groups. Actually there are even more disconnected groups now which makes any meaningful change just a dream. It is even worse. Managers who were responsible for failed projects were promoted and now have a second chance to inflict another wound to the company. The company will lose lots of talented people soon and I am afraid it is going to lose its race with the competition that has grown strong in the last few years. If Wiley continues on this course I doubt that they would stay in business for long.
