      I worked at Penguin Random House full-time (More than 3 years)

      Pros

      Everyone is very pleasant and enjoys the end product -- there's a real love for reading and literature. Lots of free books and discussion about the latest titles. Great work/life balance, many parents with small kids.

      Cons

      Challenging to move efficiently on projects, as the culture is quite meeting-heavy and there's a need to get approval from lots of upper managers. Typical of publishing.

      Advice to Management

      Less meetings. Build more trust in small teams to be autonomous and make decisions on their own. Encourage cross-discipline collaboration via self organizing, not just in meetings led by a manager.
