    My be to large of a company. You may get lost in the crowd.

    Advice to Management

    Listen closely to the representative on the street who are the eyes and ears of the company. The outside reps. are the pulse of the company.

    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.
