Publisher, Stellenbosch, WC - 9 February 2014
SUN MeDIA is a groundbreaking enterprise that started as a small print-on-demand venture and succeeded beyond expectations to become a premier academic publisher in South Africa. It has given me tremendous opportunities for growth and new experiences. Mangement is visionary and capable, and the company is treated like a family, although having grown to three divisions countrywide, as well as spawning its own design studio. Employees work as a team, but with a lot of individual responsibility and opportunity for movement. The steady influx of new manuscripts can sometimes create tension as the relatively small publishing department attempts to cope with the diverse range of materials, short deadlines and administrative burden. However, this also creates a diverse and stimulating environment where new skills have to be learned by necessity.
