Not a place you can plan a career or life at

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsIt's an old world book publishing company struggling to transition to a new world company. It is extremely challenging to see and help a company cross this technological chasm where the entire publishing industry is experiencing a severe transformation upheaval which has claimed many victims in the wake of its paradigm realignment. Reed Elsevier won't go under but may just cobble along. It is both exciting and frightening.

ConsIronically, depending on how you look at it, the pros are also the cons. For those willing to embrace this industry change and carve a new frontier, you will enjoy working here. For those less brave, this is not the place for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou must re-instill the faith in employees and rally the troops through this industry change. Employees are uneasy and do not trust management. Turnover is high. Managers need to have 1 on 1s with their team and be brutally honest with them in the change to come and what it means to the employees. That honesty will endear the staff with management and help reduce churn to some extent.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
