Decent Company

I worked at Reed Elsevier Group full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great benefits, work/life balance. Advancement can happen if you play the politics right and are ambitious. Flexibility allows for internal job switching if an opportunity comes.

Cons

My personal experience was bad because I worked for the American publishing division which was eventually sold off. The division I worked for was in sale mode for nearly four years, and that meant very little investment in technology or business expansion. Overall, the senior management seemed directionless and inaccessible. There was little or no communication between the various divisions.

    On-site cafeteria.

    Cons

    Ongoing restructuring led to disorganization and confusing strategy.
    Difficulty in synching product delivery with IT.
    Unprofessional behavior from manager was never addressed by HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Micromanaging never leads to a positive product outcome. Suggest stepping back and letting editorial staff do his/her job.
