Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pick a strategy and stick with it. Quit hiring flunkie executives that jump from company to company. They only cost Lexis more money when they leave and everything they did has to be un-done. Let your employees make decisions without fear of backlash. Management should address the low morale that has persisted for 5+ years.

    Pros

    Great employees. Phenomenal work-life balance. Still value customer service and providing a good customer experience.

    Cons

    Lost their ability to innovate and keep up with the competition. Cultural changes and inability to successfully consolidate many of their acquisitions proved frustrating.

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

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are in line with industry average. There are frequent fun company sponsored events.

    Cons

    People are overworked and there is a lack of trust in executive leadership and management. Constant turn over among executive and management positions. The organization structure also includes a large number of these positions relative to the number of employees. There's almost an equal amount of time spent communicating and reviewing with different layers of management as there is on actual deliverables. Low morale and high burnout.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees like they're human, are valuable, and have lives outside of work. Set reasonable expectations and schedules based on resources. Also, spend more resources on technical, hands-on skills and decrease the management layers!!
