    I have been working at Wiley full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Wiley deservedly enjoys a great reputation for the quality of editorial content. Good benefits and work/life balance.

    Cons

    Poor leadership: constant knee-jerk changes in the last couple of year that don't seem to support progress and innovation but just managers trying to hit targets at the last minute. Critical decisions seem arbitrary and without a solid business planning. The top vision from the CEO gets blurred as it is cascaded down. Big gender pay gap that is not effectively addressed.

    I have been working at Wiley full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - people are generally friendly and hard working - good benefits for families - once you're in, they'll keep you - good work/life balance - generous pension - company-paid annual recreation day - subsidised on-site canteen

    Cons

    - salary is uncompetitive - US mindset from HQ clashes with the mindset and work cultures of other offices around the world - once you're in, they'll keep you - even if you're dead weight - management is disconnected from ground-level operations. it's like they're working for a whole other company. - annual restructures - low morale - turnover seems particularly high for publishing - inadequate technology - no focus on career progression
