    I worked at Reed Elsevier Group

    Pros

    It'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.

    Cons

    Ironically, 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 ManagementAdvice

    You 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.
