I worked at Reed Elsevier Group full-time (less than a year)

Pros

the workers and managers including many executives were strong and valuable players in Internet business and marketing.

Cons

CEO was only focused on selling the unit. The other senior executives were strong, but were not given the freedom to grow the business for the long term.
The division I worked had a poor business model - the model was to sell it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

don't move so quickly into a new market that you're not willing to commit time, money and resources because you played with many people's lives when the organization was closed.

    I worked at Reed Elsevier Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of resources and opportunities to learn new technologies.

    Cons

    When I was there, salary was very low (about 60% of what it should be). This doesn't matter now as the company has entered into a JV and been gutted.

    Pros

    Current technologies, great co-workers, decent benefits.

    Cons

    The use of mass layoffs to improve the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Control the corporate rumor mill, most employees knew layoffs were coming weeks in advance.
