Pros

Large company with generous time off.

Cons

Got a masters and tried my hardest to advance. Sought career counselors, actually paid $500 for a career coach, thinking all this time it was me that was the problem, and that it was my own fault I was stuck in the same position for almost a decade. Turns out everyone is having the same problem. I'm now at a company where my skills and effort are valued... I almost don't know how to respond to that kind of positive environment after Elsevier. But I am finally healing. Just stay away if you can.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Abandon ship. This problem isn't only at the middle management level. Something needs to be completely revamped to fix internal problems.

    Pros

    generally a laid back work environment, with pockets of good people to work with and work that is challenging. there are many problems to solve in this industry, so good for people up to the challenge.

    Cons

    limited communication from senior management, dynamically changing industry with an organization that is somewhat resistant to change / facing the facts. personal growth is completely up to you, nobody will help you with this. it's a big organization that can be hard to navigate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    talk to all your employees, and talk to customers. limit internal churn and decision paralysis. be more decisive.
