    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great work life balance, they understand that employees have lives and the goal is to do your job not just show up in a specific location.

    It is a truly global organization so the opportunity to interact meaningfully with a wide range of people is very real.

    Cons

    Elsevier can be very euro-centric in how people are promoted and treated. When I was there it was much more common for Europeans to be promoted into senior U.S. based positions than the opposite. It came across as a glass ceiling for Americans.

    Getting things done can be tedious. There are layers of internal departments who main function appears to be form completion and project delay. This is common to many large organizations so it's not a unique problem. It did get worse over time though as more MBAs entered the business.

    Pros

    Some excellent talented people work there. Independence to excel if you know what you want to accomplish

    Cons

    lack of training (if that is required)
    highly political to the point of being ineffectual

    Advice to Management

    look up the facts yourself and don't let perception and the views of a few incompetents influence decision making and strategy
