Stable, large company regarded well for its content and expertise in healthcare informatics.

Director (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

ProsReliable, stable. Better than average benefits (health, etc.). Some opportunities for advancement. Professional, positive overall culture. Welcoming of thinkers, planners and problem-solvers.

ConsRather bureaucratic and prone to red tape. Too focused on communication via e-mail and meetings, less on actual actions and executions. Executive management very disconnected from business units under them, and more administrative and operational than able to harness strengths and able to get better depth for better results.

Advice to Senior ManagementSeek out advice from middle management and actual employees that do actual work. Clear red tape. Do away with 'design by committee' mentality. Implement small, focused teams with power (funds, resources) to innovate and build on ideas.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: Great work life balance, they understand that employees have lives and the goal is to do your job not just show up in… Cons: Elsevier can be very euro-centric in how people are promoted and treated. When I was there it was much more common for Europeans to be… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
