I have been working at Reed Elsevier Group

Pros

Fair treatment of employees, transparent policies, mgt. pretty good. They are recently becoming good at allowing movement to parts of the company but that is only recent. Finally, they are fair, in general, to employees, with some notable exceptions like every company has.

Cons

Not reacting well to changes or attacks on their industry of information services and, as a result, not keepign up with internal and external changes in the industry. Need a dose of newew management that cares about changing with the times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to do the actual job of a sales rep for a week in terms of barriers internally to sales and you will understand how bad that needs to be fixed. Do more to fix employee salary problems for employees to increase retention.

    Pros

    work life balance is extremely good in my area anyway, my managers are very approachable, the company is relatively well resourced.

    Cons

    hard to get anything done, some of the people in my area are quite cliquey and hard to get to know, I'm on a maternity contract and there is therefore little job security. I also don't really know if the job is as challenging or as interesting as initially "sold" in the interview.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm quite happy with the way things are run by management. Most of the managers I have worked with are quite approachable and easygoing, although I do find it hard to get clear, consistent answers at times.

    The company has a large global footprint. This opens opportunities to have a career in a lot of different places including telecommuting.

    Cons

    Those based out of a small regional offices have less exposure to the corporate experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees in remote locations especially those in smaller locations have less opportunities for advancement and almost no exposure to corporate.
