Pros

Great salary. Very smart and experienced people.

Cons

Complete lack of substantive communication from senior management. They communicate, but we have no clue why they do what they do.

Advice to Management

Tell us when the layoffs will stop. Tell us what the overall strategy is.

    In a cutthroat market, you need to be in touch with all employees.

    Pros

    Reed Elsevier provides a decent salary and package, compared to the rest of the industry, which is in dire straits.. Some nice co-workers made the experience pleasant on a day to day basis. Management is pleasant on the face of it, as it is most places in publishing, but gives poor, useless, or no feedback while a project is going on. It has a good reputation in an industry which has the shakes, thanks to diversified products that keep its neck above water.

    Cons

    There is poor communication throughout the system, a throwback to an era when things moved along at a lazy pace in publishing. But it matters a lot today. Heavy on the politics, even to the detriment of work time.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication up and down. Reward outstanding contributors to the team effort.


  2. Good corporate mission, poor management
