Current Employee - Creative Manager

I have been working at Elsevier full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great work-life balance. Great benefits — including two days off a year to volunteer at the place of your choosing. Stable. Professional.

Cons

Company overall is a little behind the times. Also, not the most exciting environment. Most people tend to side with the "safe" choice versus the "innovative" one. As with most large companies, there is a lot of red tape. Needs to be more transparency and communication among the different divisions — specifically product, marketing, and sales.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Needs to be more transparency and communication among the different divisions — specifically product, marketing, and sales. Needs to be more accountability and incentives for innovative/original ideas.

    Current Employee - Business Development Executive in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at Elsevier full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great diversity in employees and people working there, good opportunities as many office locations, creative and innovative people, high quality brands.

    Cons

    Poor salary, hard work was rarely rewarded, talented staff often left and less talented staff promoted, poor decision making at senior management level (e.g. rushed office moves, risky acquisitions). A lot of bureaucracy in the shared services and their inability to take responsibility for business decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start valuing your staff and get a proper salary review.
