Pros

Extremely knowledgeable people
Very passionate, committed coworkers
Decent benefits
Decent work/life balance, though its up to you to monitor it - they'll take all they can get
Local teams of business-side and development-side people work well together and respect each other

Cons

The local business and development organization is very competant, professional, and gets a lot done. In fact, the Litigation Solutions division is one of the few LexisNexis groups that has met it's sales goals and continued to grow. The big problem is when the corporate office decides to treat this division as just another regional office and makes cookie cutter decisions that have serious negative impacts. In addition, this division is a developer of PC and web-based software applications for the litigation discovery process, and senior management has no idea how to develop software applications. They are "leaders" who have a content background, not a software development background. As a result, they try to make changes to a system that works well, in order to make it fit in with the other divisions, because it's more work to have different processes and practices.

Advice to Management

Let the local management teams make the decisions on how to succeed - if they deliver, why not give them the authority to decide how to operate?
Take a serious look at the trade-offs being made in regards to integrity and valuing your people, in the name of doing whatever it takes to get products out.

    Pros

    This company does offer great flexibility for life balancing.

    Cons

    Good place to work but often unstable in various departments due to economy

    Advice to Management

    Too many contractors are used and too much outsourcing. It would be nice if they would bring back more local workers.
