    Good employee benefits, good salary, good for internal career opportunities

    Strong employee programmes put in place at the top aare not encouraged by some lower-level managers, whose vision can be much narrower.

    Train middle managers to enxourage the strong people policies agreed at top levels. Give Occupational Health more influence in employment disputes.

    I worked at Reed Business Information full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Convenient transport links Close to the town centre

    Cons

    This used to be a great company to work for but many changes in the wider company and also within the finance team mostly cost cutting or change for change sake have destroyed anything good.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at the company and ask if this is how things should be, actually speak to the staff on the front line not just to middle management who will tell you want you want to hear.
