Great people, shifting culture, unclear future
Journals Editorial (Current Employee), MAApril 6, 2015
Pros: Great work/life balance, good mid-management, friendly people
Cons: Unclear future, lots of layoffs, shifting culture
I should start by saying the vast majority of employees across Wiley are competent, collegial, and driven. There's so much knowledge among the offices, but a lot of it's being driven away by constant shifts in focus and a general loss of culture.

Wiley's in the past called itself "the place to be," but it's not even clear what that means these days, with massive layoffs/cost efficiencies, and shifts back and forth between publisher, digital services provider, technology wannabe...lather, rinse, repeat.

To their credit, senior leadership is becoming much more vocal and clear, but I'm not sure how the majority of those leaders can be in place through restructure after restructure. Are these folks really the best equipped to lead us into the future?

Now, all that said, work/life balance is excellent. Pay is probably about what you'd expect. Organic advancement can be slow, although if you're willing to hustle and create opportunities, they're usually there.

Management Confusion
Senior Production Editor (Former Employee), Malden, MAMarch 30, 2015
Pros: Great co-workers
Cons: Management confusion
Compensation is good. Great colleagues. Management staff seems to change seasonally and they're struggling to find their niche in the current market. No clear path to advancement. There is flexibility around hours and working from home which makes the work/life balance good. The tough part is the constant changing of direction of the company and the push to cut costs and time on every project. Where once quality of product was important, now fast and cheap win out. Much less job satisfaction.

Traditional industry meeting transformational challenges
Marketing Manager (Current Employee), San Francisco, CAMarch 10, 2015
The company recently decided to move into a digital first future and the series of transformational reorganizations has been profound. Core value of fiscal responsibility remains strong and underpins new emphasis on new revenue-driven strategies that guarantee immediate results. An excellent opportunity for younger executives looking to establish their first milestones.

Great Place to Work, Little in the Way of Advancement
Sales Support Coordinator (Current Employee), New York, NYJanuary 21, 2015
Pros: best work to life balance in the new york metro area
Cons: what you get in life benefits, you lack in compensation.
Wiley is a great place to work, especially if you're younger and looking to get a start in the publishing business and have grown accustomed to the idea that you will not be making a lot of money from the getgo, or you're older and have a family and want to spend more time with them. If you are inbetween those two stations in life there is not alot for you in the way of advancement or compensation.
There are not a lot of rungs in the middle of the corporate ladder.

Supervisors and bosses are very understanding and supportive. I should note that people often come back to Wiley after leaving because the people and environment are very warm and kind.

Permanent role contacting contract work
Lead UX Architect (Former Employee), Oxford, ENGJanuary 5, 2015
Pros: latitude to determine work priorities
Cons: older ways of working - more waterfall than lean.
The onus on successfully working i this environment was negotiating meetings and promoting UX and in particular User Centred Design. This was a company that had not embraced newer, leaner ways of working. They certainly had not put the customer at the centre of product development.

UX was brought in and it was my role (together with others in the US) to explain why we should be in the vanguard of new website and web application development.

This was done by producing research work quickly and so have answers as to why it best to follow a particular design route. It was important to, to include principle stakeholders in the design process and to develop a healthier relationship with Business Analysts.

Publicity Manager (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAJune 10, 2014
Wiley has a good work/life balance but they are going through major downsizing and morale is low. Hopefully once they get through the transition confidence and job security will be restored.
