    Pros

    Good work-life balance, and most of the people are smart, hard-working, friendly, and collaborative. Most managers and directors try to do their jobs well.

    Cons

    The company is less interested in telecommuting than it used to be. Also, if you have the bad luck to work for a vindictive manager or director, even briefly, your career could be over.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the occasional uninspired, shallow lower or mid-level manager ruin your ability to attract and keep talent. Have a better review or grievance process and take 360 reviews and pulse surveys more seriously.

    Pros

    Intelligent coworkers, highly educated team members, out by 5pm, paid pro bono work, interesting industry, great customers, world class customer support.

    Cons

    RIFs, offshoring, internal competition for remaining jobs. Management layoffs are frequent, leading to high tension between remaining managers. Lack of strong direction from senior manager leads to lack of consistency between work teams. Annual merits are all but nonexistent.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your strongest employees.

    Pros

    Great employees who stick together and get the work done. They hire great people but if they make too much...bye! Overall, pretty good pay and benefits, but you might not have them forever.

    Cons

    Stick with it til you retire if you have a few years left. If you are in the beginning or middle of your career, leave. Middle managers who take off every Friday and are pretty much concerned with their own status. Constant threats and just all around not the place you want to be today. The future for this company does not seem great. I wouldn't put my eggs in this basket. Oh, and middle managers who just outright deceive you for the sake of their own career.

    Advice to Management

    What's the latest strategy? Can you stick with one for any length of time?

    Pros

    Very collaborative culture with generally very talented people

    Cons

    The legal market is very challenging, and the overall research pie is shrinking. This is causing significant challenges for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp product dev talent and hold people accountable for missteps and delays

    Pros

    Great product, good people for the most part. Generally good benefits.

    Cons

    Lot of changes with management. Really dislike the views of our new management. Sales jobs are becoming more and more micromanaged. New leaders are really hurting the company both in customer service and overall employee morale. Earnings (commissions) for sales positions are getting lower each year on average. Base salary is a lot lower than what is found in the market...not competitive at all. Furthermore, almost all reps get the same base, whether you have been there 1 year or 15 years.

    Money can be made. Management leaves performers alone

    Downsizing big time. Poor leadership at the top.

    Upper managment is out of touch with sales and products.

    Management treats you like just a number, don't pay value for the education they require.

    You get more when you appreciate your employees.
