Quiet and creepy atmosphere.
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJune 29, 2016
I would not recommend Reed Elsevier if you're looking to advance your career. Too much whispering and office politics to really make a name for yourself there.
Pros
Quiet and solitude, if you're looking for that.
Cons
Bad managers, lack of communication, office politics.

Boring company with useless management

No advancement opportunities with idiotic management. Would rather spend money hiring outside consultants rather than empowering their own employees.

Senior Editor, Lexis Nexis (Former Employee) –  Home-based 14 yr; home office Charlottesville, VASeptember 22, 2015
Home based employee worked via computer and phone communications. Early years at LN was the best enjoyed co-workers and management was fair and pretty hands off. Later they increased the workload but didn't replace co-workers you had to get the work done without any help. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting the product completed
Pros
Salary and ability to work from home
Cons
communications

Pros
Always learning new solutions to office service problems.
Cons
Major corporations with mergers and acquisitions affects everyone sooner or later.

mn (Former Employee) –  AtlantaMarch 5, 2015
Manager had her strong points but should not be over a team any time soon. Co-workers were pretty cool except two of the women constantly argued and made a few people uncomfortable. Mundane typical schedule, a lot of Excel usage, hardest part of the job was staying busy. Most enjoyable part of the job, the people.
