I worked at Reed Elsevier Group

Pros

Wonderful company with a close knit community of employees all working towards a similar goal of delivering a product on time. Each member of the staff knew there responsibilities and understood what made the company tick.

Cons

Pace was always quickened due to time sensitive objectives. Working till the job was completed was always something we had to handle.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow employees to set beforehand a working timeframe when starting a workweek. Once this is established it will beenefit the company.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and opportunities for professional development and career progression. There are always jobs advertised internally that offer progression or sideways moves. The benefits are significantly better than other companies I've worked for.

    Cons

    Communication is hit and miss. Because the company is so huge, achieving consistent and regular communication with employees is difficult. As a result, not everyone identifies with the company's vision and objectives as much as they could. Collaboration across departmetns within a business unit is difficult; collaboration across business units is almost unheard of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees and give them permission to use their judgement, even if it means they bend the rules. Staff need to know that not only is it OK but it's actually impertaive that we try new ways of doing things. Embracing change is not easy for many people. Management can lay the groundwork in such a way that actively welcoming or even initiating change is the status quo, by making sure that people know that risk taking is allowed.

    Come for the benefits, but beware of shady management styles

    Pros

    Technology is always up to date. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Too much politics. You have a lot of upper management that are international or have just recently moved to the U.S. and they carry a lot of the "in your face" European management style that may come off as rude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. It's one thing to have open dialog with your direct team but people under them need to know you exist.
