    I worked at Reed Business Information

    Pros

    It was not micromanaged in my team (before the divestment). Great dialogue between co-workers and overall good team work. I was able to work from home when needed. Overall it was a great first experience in the technology industry .

    Cons

    I felt there was some favoritism with the person who was my team lead - but I think it was more of a personal thing than an actual company culture thing. Sometimes people got a little too intense talking about the fault of the problem rather than fixing the issue.

    Sales Executive Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Reed Business Information in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Went through an agency, group interview with approximately 20 people was whittled down to a shortlisted 8 with 4 jobs to spare. The hiring managers it seemed went mostly of personality and their gut rather than any particular competence. Did a mock sales call and initially had a 1 to 1 interview which lasted approximately 5 minutes before being offered the job the next day, through the agency.
    Sounds like a hard process as described however most hired colleagues had much smaller groups with less rigorous selection pressures.
