    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees and help them take their career in the direction they would like to go. Think of your department as a team and not the competition

    I have been working at Simon & Schuster full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Nice lounge area. You get to work on some nice books (especially if you work with the children's department).

    Cons

    The company is overall is not supportive of growth among their employees. It is the most unhealthy place to work due to all of the cliques and back stabbing that take place. The SVP of Sales and the CFO patrol the hallways at night to see who is still in the office after 5pm. It is by far the worst corporation that I have ever worked for in the publishing industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No more lay-offs- your employees are over worked already and you really need to make better management decisions.
