The overcrowded cubicle farms are terrible for those working in collaborative or creative fields.

Pros

The coworkers and management were nice and intelligent. The new gym, while small, is uncrowded. There was a variety of projects to work on. Close to King's Island.

Cons

The buildings' decors were pretty depressing. This place is very overcrowded. Its hard to get excited about legal products. They absorb so many companies that the hierarchy is a mess. Lots of redundancy. Not efficient.

    My workgroup is confused by management, then senior management and most often by executive-level cross-talk.

    Pros

    Benefits package
    Time off after a few years

    Cons

    Developers are 2class citizens, treated like entry-level friecooks
    Multiple areas working on the exact same thing
    Manager overlap - we're never sure who relaly holds the purse strings or the final say. You can work for months getting positive feedback and then, all of a sudden, what you have is garbage.
    No clear direction from management on ultimate goals, needs, etc.
    Executives totally out of touch with real work or workplace

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire most of senior management, start over from scratch. Actually train and promote from within rather than having a new-shiny manager every other week.

    Legal was a good place to work, however the Risk/Government lacked class solid organizational leadership.

    Pros

    Lexis has a strong brand in the market and was once a very employee friendly place to work. Benefits and compensation are above average and continuous learning is valued.

    Cons

    Lexis restructures far too often, creating client and employee churn. They create impossible goals, split accounts and move revenue to appeal to Wall Street, but have missed the mark for the past 5 years. The Legal division is a class organization, but the Risk/ Government group is very unsophisticated with egomaniac leaders. There is very little consideration given to work & family balance and they drive workers like used car salesmen. The overall reputation has taken hits and sales are suffering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to your customers and their needs over how many more ways you can restructure the business.
