    They pay if you are sick, what more can I add?

    This is encouraging more now. Again different for people on different teams. Can make teamwork challenging

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 fringe benefits , pension is average but gets better after 3 years

Elsevier response

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately, it is not true that there are no benefits for employees. Most of the reviews left on this page by other employees show an array of benefits for employees. If this was not discussed with you during your onboarding, you may want to find out more about our benefits from your HR business partner or via the company's intranet site.
