Elsevier seems to say the right things but is still figuring out how to implement those things. There's an awful lot of churn (the "joke" is that things are restructured at least once a year).
The experience is very dependent on the VP to whom the team reports. Some advocate for their people; others focus on how they appear to Upper Management. Some appreciate problem-solving; others want everything (and everyone) to fit into a tidy box. Some treat an employee as a person; others see only cog-like "resources" to be deployed.
Some of my main concerns/complaints.
Although the company has many offices, only a handful matter in terms of the direction of the company or the advancement opportunities for employees.
Management seems to care more about pretty presentations than actual work. People who say what Management wants to hear are promoted/rewarded.
More and more of the people who seem grounded in reality and reasonably intelligent are leaving or being forced out. More and more, I find myself asking, "Who put that person in charge?"
