I have been working at Elsevier full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Work-Life Balance
OK salary
Nice peers

Cons

Make a better effort to advance internal staff, as their support is the reason the Company is successful.
Management Associate Programs are really offred to current employees and should be made available to those inside of the Company. Those who suppport the Company would like to have the opportunity to be part of the highly paid group of business leaders (if that is their goal).

    I worked at Elsevier full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Promotions are mostly from within. Peers are delightful to work with. Company is very stable with over 9000 employees international. Major sites for employment are Philadelphia, St Louis, New York and Atlanta. Sales professionals can work from home. Elsevier fosters a learning culture and community involvement. Content is great Great holidays, 2 week vacation, sick days

    Cons

    Content outshines lagging technology capabilities. Less than average salaries with PDP used to control salary growth. Electronic side of publishing business is growing at double digit while print side not so much. Concerns of pricing as relating to electronic products not in step with client needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    24/7 365 org change gets pretty annoying. I understand the industry is changing and the organization is very large but the change process needs to be more transparent and acted on more swiftly.
