    I have been working at Elsevier full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A powerful mission to support healthcare professionals in the delivery of improved outcomes for all, a strong sense of community, the BEST medical content, a work-hard, play-hard culture. Lots of smart people! Flexible work.

    Cons

    The Business is undergoing a major data/analytics transition and the fast paced, global matrix environment is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the important transformation while recognizing the strength of the legacy portfolio, and the teams still delivering these products, which provide our very “right the play” in the more data oriented future.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Elsevier (Philadelphia, PA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    1) Received initial call from HR.
    2) Received follow up call from HR, indicating interest in interviewing.
    3) Received unscheduled phone screen call from developers on team. HR had scheduled internally, but not with me
    4) Did technical phone screen.
    5) Didn't hear anything for three weeks. Contacted person who recommended I apply, and then heard from manager that they wished to schedule an onsite interview.
    6) Prior to onsite, asked to complete online intelligence assessment - patterns, problem solving. Also, provided with code sample and asked to provide a written critique.
    7) Did onsite interview, lasted 2.5 hours. Included pair programming task. They assured me I'd hear back within 7 days.
    8) Did not hear back for 2.5 weeks, reached out again for final answer. Manager complained that he told HR to relay their decision to me. I was told I was not a good fit for their "team culture".
