    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Considerable amount of females in leadership roles. Realistic expectations.

    Cons

    Lack of vision. Little to no training. Mid-level managers are uninspiring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share a vision and a strategy with the company and individual divisions. Stand up for that vision and use it to galvanize employees around common goals. Break down the barriers to doing every day business. Add head count when warranted.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Managing Editor in U.S.

    Pros

    Very good benefits -- 401K company match, we even had a pension (now gone), and health insurance options at reasonable contribution rates. Pay was good overall in the past, but then the annual raises were so tiny they essentially stopped.

    Cons

    Elsevier, as the parent company, did not understand what we were doing in our small division. They therefore ignored us and did not provide the resources we needed to produce our publications. We had repeated layoffs, leaving behind a skeleton crew, and then they sold us to a company that appears to be even worse (cheaper!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to find out what all of your divisions are doing, and then provide what they need in terms of basic resources. Don't demand large profit margins from a division that is severely understaffed.
