Pros

Generally treats its employees well. Time off, working flexibility are good, pensions, benefit were good but have been getting worse. Work life can be very pleasant and measured, all the usual trappings of a company their size.

Cons

No-one's heard of the company. People know the brands but expect to explain how to pronounce Reed Elsevier (reed el-severe) let alone what they do. It seems like change happens at a glacial place. Management has been turned over several times in the last 2yrs, this, coupled with the downturn, has led to continued product stagnation and a general lack of overall direction. They've been steadying the ship but don't have a rudder or any wind the sails.

Advice to Management

Set some direction, communicate it, to the employees and to the market stick to it.

    Pros

    Working at Reed Elsevier allows staff to manage their businesses we they see fit. There is many satisfied staff that generally enjoy the work they do and are proud of the products they deliver.

    Cons

    The business as it should looks for opportunities to save and manage cost. In doing so, the service level to staff and customers suffers. The general lowering of service to save money is and important effort, but the barometer that measure lower thresholds that businesses want to avoid, are seldom in place.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure you're clear on the survey information that is used to support business decision. Going the direction of lowering cost can and will impact the bottom line less favourably otherwise.
