      Lots of opportunities to learn. Colleagues were all extremely helpful and great to work with. Great global culture with lots of initiatives to expand your network and gain new skills.

      Cons

      The Publishing Assistant role is hard to define. Workload is extremely varied.

      It's a corporate life

      Pros

      The company is VERY dynamic. Ideal if you are in your twenties, full of energy, and willing to shift ideas and methods every couple of months. Colleagues are great. The company supports community life through activities, festivals, events, courses etc. Lots of money invested there. Global overview on the world of publishing. You always know what is going on in the business, they are good at keeping you in the loop. Some (not all) of the top-heads are really cool people.

      Cons

      It's a corporate life. You know... suit up, it's time for the Corp Show again. Lots of 'town hall' meetings which make little sense to the passing-by layman, lots of pep-talk which makes little sense in general. In general, this idea that Britain and the British seats are a bit funny, bit silly, not working very well. Well guess what, Britain is not the US, and we work in a different way. We speak differently, think differently, work differently. The sickness policy is OUTRAGEOUS. You get to be sick for ten days in a 'rolling period of 12 months', which means that after the fourth time you stay home for a powerful cold, you get a whole disciplinary meeting with HR to clear your 'status'. It's incredibly intimidating, and I'm not even sure it's legal.

Good financial benefits and reward/bonus system. Am leaving for another career step but wouldn’t hesitate to work for Wiley again, or recommend for anyone thinking about joining.
