DK Publishing

Editorial Director

January 1970

Be aware of the cultural differences between the US and the UK. I found subtle (but pervasive) anti-American sentiment and chauvinism in lots of places. Mostly it was benign and something we joked about. But it's there, and if that's something you can't stomach, then this may not be a good fit for you.

  • CEO supports Gender Diversity?


  • Are Women and Men Treated Equally?

  • Level of Flexibility

    DK--and its parent company Penguin Random House--are very open to flexible work arrangements. Your direct supervisor is the important link here--he or she must champion you and your arrangement for it to work.
  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    16 paid / 4 unpaid

    They are very supportive of maternity leave and they are improving their policies frequently.
  • Work-Life Friendly Attributes:

    Hours, Culture, Policies

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    DK needs a structural overhaul which is unlikely to happen. That was the reason I left.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. DK is a British company, and culturally different. Chauvinism runs deep, but so does respect for men and women who are smart and do their jobs well. It can be a wonderful place, but you need to understand the cultural differences that crop up nearly constantly.
