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

Pros

Work-Life Balance
OK salary
Nice peers

Cons

Make a better effort to advance internal staff, as their support is the reason the Company is successful.
Management Associate Programs are really offred to current employees and should be made available to those inside of the Company. Those who suppport the Company would like to have the opportunity to be part of the highly paid group of business leaders (if that is their goal).

Advice to Management

    I worked at Elsevier full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Promotions are mostly from within. Peers are delightful to work with. Company is very stable with over 9000 employees international. Major sites for employment are Philadelphia, St Louis, New York and Atlanta. Sales professionals can work from home. Elsevier fosters a learning culture and community involvement. Content is great Great holidays, 2 week vacation, sick days

    Cons

    Content outshines lagging technology capabilities. Less than average salaries with PDP used to control salary growth. Electronic side of publishing business is growing at double digit while print side not so much. Concerns of pricing as relating to electronic products not in step with client needs.

    I worked at Elsevier full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Trying to be on the cutting edge of medical and scientific publishing in terms of technology and information platforms.

    Cons

    People at the Director level and upward have not been selected wisely and are making poor decisions in terms of resource allocation, strategic focus.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to "valuing your employees," allegedly one of Elsevier's core values. I'm in touch with lots of people who are still working there and none of them are happy.
