Frequent passive-aggressive behavior and contemptuous attitudes in the N.C. software business. But interesting products.

No opinion of CEO

I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

The company is making headway into SaaS (software as a service) and reorganizes often to stay atop a dynamic market.

Cons

Reorganizes often to stay atop a dynamic market.. Several managers seem to have passive-aggressive behaviors that (apart from the obvious personal drawbacks) result in many meetings to pin people down to commitments.

Advice to Management

More modeling and rewarding of humility and the celebration of others could reduce communications stonewalling and employee attrition.

    I have been working at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly people, good atmosphere. Can't speak for corporate, only local division. Good BLSS leadership.

    Cons

    Departments are still in silos. Problems are "somebody else's" and sharing of loads between groups can be painful.

    Advice to Management

    Find a better office building. 15+ years is way too long to be in one spot; the facilities are not laid out in a way to inspire creativity or interaction. Stop letting the small clients dictate our priorities; be proactive rather than reactive. Say "no" or "pay us to do it" when clients want something out of scope for free.

    I have been working at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time

    Pros

    Great team and middle management. Dedicated, smart people, though many of them are contractors and not full-time employees. Decent salaries and benefits. Large, reputable corporation behind this division.

    Cons

    Poor upper management and little to no communication with employees at large. A major shift is taking place that employees know about but management will not reveal, killing morale. Lots of water cooler doom talk. Rumors of further layoffs. Seemingly no day-to-day management of workforce. No path for future advancement, except maybe for MBA/think tank types.

    Advice to Management

    See cons and address those, if improving this company is a priority that management is interested in.
