I have been working at Elsevier full-time for more than a year

Pros

Lovely place to work with interesting and challenging projects

Cons

Pay is very low, need to make more opportunities available to those who are capable not just to those employees who happen to have been there the longest. You have to fight to get good projects to work on and there not enough training available for development.

HR are pretty much non-existent. They welcome you on your first day and you won't see them again. Organization mapping is confusing - it'd be better to have a manager who is familiar with the work you do and can actually provide a step-up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give us better pay!

    Pros

    Stable company. Well-educated staff, mostly academic. Culture and atmosphere are good., colleagues are supportive of peers. Appropriate terms and benefits.

    Cons

    No career planning. Senior management is remote. Mainly commercially, less product driven. Limited focus on innovation, rather reactive to the competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should heavily invest in innovation and new products.
