    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Reed Elsevier Group as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    A professional environment that rewards contributors and recognises team efforts. Work-life balance and emphasis on personal development and growth.

    Cons

    Not many I can think of, perhaps the practice of not offering bonuses? Many companies do this though. Salary is still relatively attractive overall.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Keep identifying talent who are both proficient in the area of expertise but also have a good editorial track record.


  3. "Very laid back atmoshpere"

    Pros

    They have a laid back atmosphere around the office, people are friendly and usually willing to help you out.

    Cons

    Oxford office is in the middle of nowhere, next to Oxford Airport. If you don't have management on your side, you'll be feeling a lot of pressure and it's unfair how people are treated once they have been singled out.

    Advice to Management

    Think about the way people are treated and how to progress with projects. There are no quick, simple and cheap solutions, you really do get what you pay for.

    Good prospects - good markets and nice environment. Good work-life balance and great people to work with. Compensation is very good, above market average.

    Too many re-organisations and every year there is a squeeze on spending hiring etc to make the numbers, Very short term thinking.

    Make sure you get the long term career progression right. You are loosing too many really good people along the way.
