Constant shifting coupled with no real change

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at Reed Elsevier Group

ProsGenerally 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.

ConsNo-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 Senior ManagementSet some direction, communicate it, to the employees and to the market stick to it.
