I worked at Reed Elsevier Group full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The people.
Most of the people I dealt with whether they be part of the shared services group, business controllers and finance teams of both the US and UK business divisions or even the AsiaPac team..all of them are incredibly knowledgeable and open to collaboration.

Cons

Unfortunately in 2013 there has been significant RIF(s) in the US in the operational and SS areas (not sure about what is going on in the UK) A good chunk of that talent has been taken away; the people that are left are being stretched to increase output without additional resources or improved infrastructure. Communication between senior management and the its' reporting teams is not always optimal.

    I worked at Reed Elsevier Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very, very large company stability. The company has clear policies on HR, growth, travel, etc... I prefer small companies and working here was hard but always fair, always.

    Cons

    For me, the big company culture was hard. Things do not happen quickly and that can be a good thing if you can be patient.

    Advice to Management

    A little more transparency in the management thought process would be good.
