I have been working at Elsevier full-time

Pros

Lots of really smart people, who are all passionate about supporting health and science, and trying to innovate the way we provide information to our customers. Quite a few different types of jobs available. Open and friendly culture.

Cons

Typical "large company" issues - not the quickest to make decisions, a bit too academic and not entrepreneurial enough at times, strong internal networking capabilities required. Could be a bit more commercial in outlook.

Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO
