    I have been working at Elsevier as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    This is the leader in the corporate realm of professional reference material publishers. The size, scope and global positioning of the company gives vast latitude in leveraging your career. The growth of current employees is of great importance to management.

    Cons

    Because the staff is distributed globally, and often work in remote locations, sometimes you can become isolated from your own team or group.

    Summer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Elsevier in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The entire process was mostly informal. I sent my resume to a family friend who is a Publicist at the Philadelphia office and she sent my resume to different people around the company looking for summer interns. I contacted by phone and email by the Product Strategy Coordinator, and went in for an interview later that week. The interview was professional, a good mix of formal and informal. I was told that I got the position about ten days later.
