I worked at Reed Elsevier Group

Pros

Some excellent talented people work there. Independence to excel if you know what you want to accomplish

Cons

lack of training (if that is required)
highly political to the point of being ineffectual

Advice to ManagementAdvice

look up the facts yourself and don't let perception and the views of a few incompetents influence decision making and strategy

No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Reed Elsevier Group

    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 ManagementAdvice

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