    I have been working at Elsevier full-time (more than a 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.
