No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Reed Expo, the US- based division I worked for, is a leader in the exhibition and trade show space. This organization is strong at understanding the important touch points of a myriad of industries.

Cons

For many industries, Reed Expo's lack of authenticity and foreword-thinking activities hamper their effectiveness in that particular segment.

Advice to Management

Management needs to work to understand that an industry event is more than just the specific days during which the trade show is held.

    I worked at Reed Elsevier Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They offer good benefits and (for my profession) very good compensation based on geographical location. Leadership within my group was good.

    Cons

    Overall company leadership was lacking. They fail to adequately value their employees. Perhaps this is just how it is with Big Business, but moral consistently dropped over the course of my 7.5 years there.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people.

    Disapproves of CEO

    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 Management

    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.
