Company Culture

Coworkers are great and supportive, management is demanding, unsupportive, and very difficult to talk with.

Support from management

Management doesn't value employees at all--views them as disposable. They invite feedback but don't actually care about it.

Teamwork

The team (outside of management) was great--very supportive and accommodating.

Freedom to work independently

Yes? They leave you to your work, but don't give constructive feedback.

Internal Communication

The management has no idea how the company actually functions. I had to ask at least four people about any questions I had because nobody knew how things ran.

Gender Equality

Most of the staff was female, but male seem to be more trusted by management.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Very respectful.

Career Development

Editors and designers will gain some great experience in their art, but there is no room for progression within the company

Overall compensation for your work

$12 an hour for most positions. A lot of work and very little positive feedback

Office / Work Environment

Again, coworkers are great. Very friendly and compassionate.

Environmental Friendliness

We had recycle bins and did work to conserve electricity.

Work-Life Balance

You were discouraged from going over hours, but to meet expectations some people work off the clock.

Company Image

Some authors have a great experience, some have a really terrible one. The books are usually pretty good.

Job Security

Employees are disposable. If you don't fit into the vision, you're out.

Handicapped Accessibility

The employees with sedentary jobs work upstairs and there's no elevator

Challenging Work

The actual tasks required of my position were not difficult (didn't use any of the skills I developed in school), but management/lack of relevant training made my job impossible

Inclusive / Diverse

All Mormon, white, and mostly female from early 20s to early 30s

Suggestions for improvement

  • ~Don't be reliant on individual sales outlets--you will never reach "Cedar Fort 2.0" you are dependant on one or two outlets. Especially when you turn down the best submissions because Desert Book or Costco won't pick them up ~Train your employees ~Plan Facebook posts to be more geared to your projects--the things that your company is excited about ~Learn your industry ~Learn your company's standing in the industry (does it actually mean anything to be in "the top 5 percent?) ~Learn your own company--ask Kinsey what her process is for getting illustrators. Ask each acquisitions editor what her process is when she chooses a book to pitch to you. Ask Herrshey about royalties so you don't make every employee watch videos with false information. ~Put your phones away during acquisitions meetings

What I like about the company

I liked the my coworker and our finished product

What I dislike about the company

They don't know much about their market. They don't act like they know much about good leadership. I felt like the way they treated employees and authors sometimes was at odds with their mission statement.

What I like about the company

Nothing

What I dislike about the company

The environment is very toxic. They tend to hire students right out of college to keep the wages depressed. Management has unrealistic expectations. There is no support available to achieve goals. There is a extremely high turn over rate at this company.
