Good salary and benefits, but too unstable as an organization

I have been working at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Salary and benefits are very competitive, work environment is positive and flexible. The ability to work remotely is especially popular, since many get their best work done away from the office. Work-life balance, health and wellness are strongly promoted, with policies and resources to match. As an engineer, I have all of the resources I need to get my job done. It's a good place to work for a short time (2-3 years).

Cons

Cost-cutting, especially through several rounds of layoffs, has led to the impression that senior leaders are "penny-wise, but pound-foolish", making tactical decisions with long-term negative impacts. Without commenting on the business impact, massive job offshoring in the past few years, coupled with incessant reorganization, has widely impacted the loyalty, trust and enthusiasm of remaining employees. LexisNexis is almost half a century old - ancient for a technology company - and is clinging in places to what seem like stodgy, out-dated management principles and techniques.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your employees have an organizational trust problem. It's hard to believe in your company when the others around you - who also believed in you - got their jobs shipped off to India. Stabilize your workforce, and then the enthusiasm might return.

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

    Pros

    Large company that you can easily get lost in if that is what you are looking for.
    Many divisions with multiple technologies to work with.

    Cons

    Several years ago all internal communications started to degrade and nothing has been done to address this.
    The focus is more on supporting the sales team than supporting the customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck. Upper management is hired from outside the company. I have not seen anyone interanly promoted above Director.
