Stable, occasionally innovative, well-intentioned market leader - but you'll have to fight for time career development

I have been working at Elsevier full-time for more than 3 years

ProsLarge, stable (in aggregate), international - both by office location and outlook. Genuine commitment to accelerating science and health outcomes. Employees have deep backgrounds and expertise in our markets (science/health). Generally a fair and considerate place of work.

ConsSlow to change and to move. A silo'd organisation (functionally). You have to take full responsibility for your own career development. In spite of best intentions, Elsevier is often the lightning rod for complaints about the system of academic publishing.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
