    Pros

    Large, international, long-term focus, competent

    Cons

    Too large, not-local, overly goal focused, disorganized

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more and actually do something productive. The counting of words to determine the value of an opinion is an approach that fails to take into account content quality and is only concerned with the amount of content.

    Pros

    Wonderful company with a close knit community of employees all working towards a similar goal of delivering a product on time. Each member of the staff knew there responsibilities and understood what made the company tick.

    Cons

    Pace was always quickened due to time sensitive objectives. Working till the job was completed was always something we had to handle.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to set beforehand a working timeframe when starting a workweek. Once this is established it will beenefit the company.

    I have been working at RELX Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Reliable, stable. Better than average benefits (health, etc.). Some opportunities for advancement. Professional, positive overall culture. Welcoming of thinkers, planners and problem-solvers.

    Cons

    Rather bureaucratic and prone to red tape. Too focused on communication via e-mail and meetings, less on actual actions and executions. Executive management very disconnected from business units under them, and more administrative and operational than able to harness strengths and able to get better depth for better results.

    Advice to Management

    Seek out advice from middle management and actual employees that do actual work. Clear red tape. Do away with 'design by committee' mentality. Implement small, focused teams with power (funds, resources) to innovate and build on ideas.

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