Assistant Editor Reviews

What is it like working as an Assistant Editor?
Assistant Editor in London:
"Good people, poor management"
Pros: I enjoy working with interesting books and intelligent, engaging people. Stress levels are relatively low for most of the year and I am able to work with a significant degree of autonomy.
Cons: There is very little in the way of professional management or human resources support. I often feel isolated and would prefer to have more pro-active, people-focused management that does not simply focus on schedules and deadlines. There has also been little opportunity to broaden or improve my skills, or for promotion, with the added responsibility, interest, pay and job satisfaction that would bring.
