"Publishing is a very female-driven industry, but in the group I was in, I found that the leadership positions were mostly held by men, and that often hiring of external (male) candidates resulted in large inequities in pay bands within a job role. That being said, Elsevier have an excellent Women’s Network that do a lot to boost visibility within the organisation. "

"It's a great organization for women. They place great importance on wellness and wellbeing. There's a special female leadership program for aspiring women. It's also a family friendly organization with flexi working and a great culture. There's voucher program to help with childcare in the UK, not sure of other locations. The ability to work from home while you're provided all the necessary equipments does it for me and others."

"It's a dying business model on a downward trend. The new CEO was brought in to fix this but unless the entire board gets replaced, I don't see much hope. "

"This Company truly cares about their employees' wellness and work-life balance, as well as their opinion. There always is some kid of an opinion survey almost every week. Each employee's voice is heard. There is also a weekly OfficeVibe survey which provides constant feedback and pulse for the team and is reviewed/responded to by ALL levels of leadership. "
"Having a female CEO makes us a female-friendly organization. Full flexi-work enables us to create time for ourselves, family and work. Work life balance is at the forefront at Elsevier. Benefits are female friendly as well. Female leadership training is a key initiative at Elsevier. The ability to work from anywhere in the world is a bonus too. It's an environment where great and meaningful work are rewarded regardless of your gender. "
"Female leadership training is now in focus in the company. It's a great place for you if you have children and cherish the opportunity to work from anywhere in the world. Wellness and wellbeing are at the forefront. Benefits are great too for all, especially women. "

"Elsevier has a pay gender gap of 37% in the UK - more than twice the industry average. In the UK, it is mandatory to report such numbers. The leadership team knows how to "talk the talk" but they don't walk the walk. They don't seem to truly believe in the role of inclusion and diversity on improving the bottom line - they think it's just the latest HR fad. They're one of the worse companies as far as inclusion and gender equity is concerned. "

"Don't do it, you will find it frustrating and they aren't putting any real effort into addressing gender imbalance, only token initiatives. "

"Make sure you see women in leadership positions in your specaility area - not just overall and ask early on for a true sponsor. Triangulate your efforts."
