    Positive Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Wiley full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, looks after employees - well defined career paths, great internal development and beautiful offices in Chichester (if somewhat quiet!). Excellent Work Life Balance.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, sometimes stale - meaning career path bottlenecks (staff are often lifelong Wiley employees). Decision making can be frustrating.

    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Wiley full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Smart / hard-working colleagues (below VP level)

    Cons

    The performance of leaders is all about how much "stuff" they implement, there is little attention to any type of adoption, effectiveness, benefits realization, etc., metrics. Many initiatives are quickly implemented because "leadership says so" and if you voice any opposition or mention any concerns with their approach, you are generally labeled as someone who is not a team player or like you are against them. They hired and lost several change managers in a short time because it was clear leaders dont care about this and they thought hiring someone with that title would be enough.

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Wiley full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Location is convenient - If you live in NJ, their location is great unlike other publishers who are based in NY. 2. Vacation days and tuition benefits ( subject to manager approval)

    Cons

    1. The pay is very less even for entry level positions. I've seen PhDs work for less than 70K. 2. No flexibility - Flexible working arrangements such as working from home even for one or two days a week is not available. 3. The rules and structure vary between teams. Some managers are partial and special treatment is given to their close buddies
