    11% pension contribution after 3 years - that is amazing. Before that, it's a generous 5%. Highly competitive salary. Very flexible Work/Home life balance. Decent bonus package.

    You get 25 days holiday and can buy an extra 5 days/year (at manager's discretion), which is great. Flexible working means you can work from home some days but very difficult to obtain other types of flexible working arrangements. Some people have been denied working part-time, for example. Maternity pay is below the average of other companies in the RELX group and competitors, and the Pay gap report is one of the worst in the industry too. You also get private health insurance, pension, cycle to work subsidies and other perks for cinema etc. as expected from a big multinational.

    The best thing is that there are many benefits available to employees. However, some benefits are based on locations for obvious. For instance in India, employees have the use of a bus for transportation while in the UK, we all make our way to work.

    No benefits. No bonus. Nothing. Only get sick pay after passing a six month probation. If you are unfortunately ill in probation you do not get it paid. You can’t ever work from home either, despite claiming to have flexible working systems and a global technology organisation.
