Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Elsevier full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Large company with generous time off.

Cons

Got a masters and tried my hardest to advance. Sought career counselors, actually paid $500 for a career coach, thinking all this time it was me that was the problem, and that it was my own fault I was stuck in the same position for almost a decade. Turns out everyone is having the same problem. I'm now at a company where my skills and effort are valued... I almost don't know how to respond to that kind of positive environment after Elsevier. But I am finally healing. Just stay away if you can.

Advice to Management

Abandon ship. This problem isn't only at the middle management level. Something needs to be completely revamped to fix internal problems.

    I worked at Elsevier as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Informal, low pressure to engage in too many office politics (good if you are not the "lunch out with coworkers every day" type, work-life balance.

    Cons

    Not "fun" or life-changing--low excitement, can be repetitive
