    Pros

    Good stepping stone to move to other publishing companies/roles.

    Kontras

    Poor management, tedious administrative work, creatively un-stimulating and lots of red tape to get anything approved.

    Rat an das Management

    Stop outsourcing departments to save money - quality has gone massively downhill as has the morale of staff. Invest more in staff on the ground and make wages transparent and equal across the same role.

    Pros

    -some colleagues are good -pay is decent

    Kontras

    I started working here pre-Springer, and I loved my job. Now we are under Springer and it is terrible to come to work every day. Springer doesn’t care about authors, the books, quality, or anything except quantity and money. They cut cost wherever they can at the expense of the books. It’s been truly sad to watch Palgrave Macmillan be destroyed by another imprint. Don’t work here unless you’re looking for just a pay check...

    Maybe care a little more about your reputation and your products than about factory producing thousands of books. Our authors hate us, and management doesn’t have to deal with authors so they don’t care.

    Negative Prognose

    Ich habe bei Palgrave Macmillan gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Amazingly talented and creative people. You'll have the opportunity to travel even at an entry level Editorial Assistant position. If you're desperate for an job after college and are fully prepared to settle... Palgrave is the place for you. They hire regardless of what you majored in. It's a mildly reputable company, especially if you're just starting.

    Kontras

    If you would like to be tremendously underpaid and overworked, you've come to the right place. Most entry level assistants are working on 80-110 books a year and the starting salary is laughable. The quality of the books is poor and barely rigorous. I can recall multiple times where I read some of the material I was asked to submit to production and I thought to myself "How on earth are we publishing this? The workload...

    Please prioritize the mental health of your employees. There is no reason for teams and individuals to be taking the burden for vacancies that cannot be filled due to the convoluted practices of the company. Realize that Palgrave Macmillan is not Springer and the rapid decline of the imprint is directly correlated to the automated workflow that has been enforced as a result of the merger.

    Ich arbeite seit weniger als einem Jahr bei Palgrave Macmillan als Vollzeit

    Pros

    Some lovely intelligent and engaged people work here! Palgrave as have a strong brand and friendly work culture. The (editorial) work is always varied, and gives good opportunities to learn and grow - if you're a naturally autonomous worker who can cope well under pressure.

    Kontras

    The merger with Springer has destroyed the Palgrave company culture, as you feel like nothing more than a cog in a machine. Senior management shows little to no notice of the on the ground work/grafting done by junior and mid-level staff. You're bogged down by operational and administrative work, which hampers any creative growth. I've felt bullied by a line manager, who has used punitive performance plans in an attempt...

    Rat an das Management

    Management also suffers under poor company wide organisation. Line managers need to speak up on behalf of their reports, stay in communication, and focus on teamwork. Management needs to be authentic, and not mask the truth of matters with prescribed lines from higher-ups. Management need to push for fairer pay for their reports. Management needs to support the staff under them with care and consideration, not unprofessional...

    Ich habe bei Palgrave Macmillan gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    EAs don't have to work insane hours or on the weekends; if you like the anonymity of working for a big company it's nice. Your paycheck comes on time every two weeks; company is flexible about time off/sick time. Opportunities for international travel (mainly for editors).

    Kontras

    The merger between Springer and Palgrave completely ruined the Palgrave working environment. Any kind of enjoyment anyone might have had in the work is long gone because of unrealistically high numbers for limited staff, innumerable torturous and exacting automated "workflows", and generally a "quality over quantity" approach. There are so many intelligent, interesting people who work here who are reduced to how quickly...

    Value the books you publish, the people who write them, and the people who work for you.

    Negative Prognose

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als einem Jahr bei Palgrave Macmillan (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    The high volume work load ensures that Editorial Assistants get a varied amount of tasks and acquire useful admin, marketing, email and time management skills. I enjoyed working with authors on the lists I managed, even those who were particularly challenging. It was rewarding to work with them and produce a product they were happy with and that fits into the publishing programme.

    Kontras

    I do not think the negative atmosphere in my team is enjoyable or condusive to output. I was bullied and lied to by my manager. I did not receive positive feedback from any senior editor in the team but was ignored unless I did not do a task immediately when they asked. When Editorial Assistants offer valuable suggestions in team meetings, the credit goes to their managers, who use it to further their own career. There...

    Train managers and give them important lessons in enabling happy staff members. Every EA in Palgrave works very hard and is dedicated to producing world-class books. However, the atmosphere of extreme hierarchy and the huge pressure on EAs to do tasks at the drop of a hat for a manager, and to receive no positive feedback at all, is depressing. It would make a huge difference if managers would praise their staff for the...
