Learning opportunities are readily available in order to promote advancement in your career. Friendly people to work with.

To keep good workers, salaries need to be a bit more competitive.

  1. "Decent Company"

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, work/life balance. Advancement can happen if you play the politics right and are ambitious. Flexibility allows for internal job switching if an opportunity comes.

    Cons

    My personal experience was bad because I worked for the American publishing division which was eventually sold off. The division I worked for was in sale mode for nearly four years, and that meant very little investment in technology or business expansion. Overall, the senior management seemed directionless and inaccessible. There was little or no communication between the various divisions.

    Pros

    Editorial group was a pleasure to work with.
    Enjoyed the "family-oriented company" atmosphere.
    Company sponsored events for employees.
    On-site cafeteria.

    Cons

    Ongoing restructuring led to disorganization and confusing strategy.
    Difficulty in synching product delivery with IT.
    Unprofessional behavior from manager was never addressed by HR.

    Advice to Management

    Micromanaging never leads to a positive product outcome. Suggest stepping back and letting editorial staff do his/her job.
