Suggestions for improvement

  • Updating online relations with customers, and unifying all accounting software into one interface that all employees are trained in.

What I like about the company

Working here has made it easier to engage with people in a professional manner.

What I dislike about the company

This company is fragmented, and at times disorganized. Management in the area where I work is not always openly communicative and at times directly contradicts other members of management.

  • I'd introduce free food and drinks, allow the employees to work from home once a week, and encourage employees to grow and challenge themselves. I'd make sure everyone got a raise each year and understood how to get promoted on their team.

What I like about the company

I have enjoyed getting close with coworkers on my team, as well as meeting employees of other departments through our young adult leadership group. I get to be surrounded by books daily and love the atmosphere of this office. Our company holds exciting events throughout the year that enable us to interact with authors and illustrators. I feel very comfortable here.

What I dislike about the company

I believe the company does not pay the entry-level and mid-level employees enough. I think it is too traditional and unable to adapt to new trends in workplace environments that start-ups have championed. I wish there were free options for at least snacks and coffee. I also wish the company was more lenient about working remotely or making hours more flexible. I feel they are slow to promote.
