    Opportunity to work on variety of projects across different business units
    Internal teams shared by other Elsevier business units provide ongoing logistical support

    Work from home flexibility

    Cons

    Poor health insurance coverage

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees' needs, get up to speed with today's business practices in your discipline, and overcome your fear of giving your employees a voice when other senior management team members make repeatedly unreasonable demands.

    Pros

    You will work with incredibly smart people who are passionate about science.

    Cons

    Cell is not interested in any new ideas concerning business practices and because of this the turn over rate is incredibly high. Morale is low.
