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

I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional as a contractor for 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    LexisNexis cares about the employees and clients, and seeks to maintain positive relationships with all.

    Cons

    The company is currently working on outsourcing a lot of work, which means that there has been some departmental reorganization and layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many of your employees are worried about their jobs, and with good reason. Hearing about how much work was being shipped offshore was a constant worry.

    Lots of potential, extremely poor execution and leadership.

    I have been working at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Large, stable company with tons of potential.
    - Strong, passionate employees that truly want to see the company succeed.
    - In an area where technical resources are abundant

    Cons

    - Executive leadership that allows their arrogance to downplay most employee concerns.
    - An organization thats more concerned with 'messaging' and 'framing' conversations that surfacing and addressing real organization concerns.
    - Executive leadership team that follows more of a 'push' model for ideas and feedback instead of a 'pull' method to give employees a stage to voice concerns.
    - Attracting talent is difficult because the company has such a negative reputation in the area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Please place your arrogance aside and actually listen to your employees.
    - Pay attention to the Employee Surveys that we spend time on.
    - Engage employees in recommending action plans to get us going in the right direction.
