Good salary and benefits, but too unstable as an organization

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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Steady work. Nice office buidling in Ballantyne.

    Cons

    Sold out to First Advantage who off shored jobs to India within months.

    Advice to Management

    Value employees who produce quality results instead of selling out to the highest bidder that will take jobs from the USA.

    Pros

    Nice facilities, nice people, good work. The Dayton, Ohio office is nice and full of good people, but it is out in the middle of nowhere. The Cary, NC office is A-1 and growing.

    Cons

    Unceremoniously let people go for "cost" reasons regardless of performance. They really do a terrible job of managing their talent, often letting good people go because they are on the wrong project at the wrong time.

    Advice to Management

    The really big projects never work out in the end. Minimize the risk of big projects by having a vision, and make incremental investments that can be reviewed. Hold people accountable if the vision is not being achieved at each increment.
