I worked at Reed Business Information full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I enjoyed working at RBI for the relationships formed while I was there and the experience I gained. I had exposure to many areas of the business and IT and was able to work with a variety of people across the globe.

Cons

The various business units are very siloed and there is little room to grow or move up the corporate ladder. The company culture is such that everyone operates on a need-to-know basis, which is not particularly conducive to good team work or morale building.

Advice to Management

More full disclosure about situations or changes affecting employees would be appreciated by those still with the company.

    I worked at Reed Business Information full-time

    Pros

    Relaxed environment and friendly people.

    Cons

    The company is too segmented. It takes too long to get the simplest things done because they have to travel around the world to be approved.

    Advice to Management

    Create a structure that makes problem solving faster and more efficient. Seems like too many people are making it up as they go.


  2. ""Discouraging working environment, lousy colleagues""

    I have been working at Reed Business Information full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    ICIS - good brand name for petrochemical
    good pay, great working hour and long lunch hour

    Cons

    All my colleague is fairly demotivated at work, so the team spirit is low and it is just dreadful to stay in such working environment.

    Zero career opportunity and company tend to overhire people for job that is easy to be done by any educated levels

    Unfriendly people, the company hires weird disgraceful who gives attitude and complicates easy process.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking that what you are providing is the best, cos it is apparent that you are not doing a good job by leading a team full of people who is trying to leave the company.
