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

Pros

Work with some excellent peers in my group and others, challenging work, with fair compensation.

Cons

Recent re-orgs an

Albany office will be closing, while i expect to be able to continue a HBE, the impact to people I've been working with for years and to the city, where Matthew Bender has had a historical precence is challenging.

Advice to Management

Communication, current organization is not well defined or understood.

    Pros

    Very old, stable, multinational, science, technology, and medicine publishing company that offers excellent benefits and steady employment.

    Cons

    Leadership is not very independent minded and tends to get caught up in trends that cause employee frustrations.

    Advice to Management

    Add more women to senior management and stop being so Dutch.

    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.
