    I have been working at Reed Elsevier Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting location and some nice people work there.

    Cons

    I worked in the RETS area. It's over-siloed, over out-sourced and good communication between teams is difficult. the on boarding process is fatally flawed. The net result is that it is very difficult to understand how to do your job. There's too much process and very little procedure. They try to do things the ITIL way and fail miserably in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Forget about having a separate IT service department and integrate IT with the business areas.
