A great company in desperate need of a vision

Department Head (Current Employee)
Amsterdam (Netherlands)

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

ProsInternational, highly educated work force
Flexible working hours, parent-friendly
Opportunity to serve high-calibre science

ConsCEO is invisible, a bean-counter with no apparent vision for the future. Poor strategy and execution of off shoring and outsourcing leads to loss of talent, poorer customer service and inefficiency.

Advice to Senior ManagementWake up and notice the sea change that has happened in the academic community and our new technology-driven competitors. Cost control and relying on traditional products is not enough to sustain our privileged profit share. A new vision is needed to inspire customers, employees and shareholders. Try not to waste the opportunity of the Mendeley merger.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
