Elsevier, a balanced view

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

Pros*Worldwide company
*Constantly improving as a company
*Many different department and career opportunities within the company
*Professional atmosphere
*Diverse staff

Cons*Business is business, it's all about the almighty dollar in the end....employees cut according to the bottom line even after years of service
*It seems like there are too many initiatives-a week celebrating this value or that value, etc. Just let us work without the distractions.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't lie and lead on employees about the future of the company or employment plans to keep employees there for your own good. Be honest and forthright, not telling half truths and lies.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
