    Pros

    A nice culture with good benefits and community. Company is very socially responsible. Great coworkers and HR department. It was nice to be part of a company as well known as LexisNexis. Good technology and customer service.

    Cons

    Very little product training provided. Risk Solutions is a clique-type group where the favorites get the best customers and the most support. Sales oversells and everyone else pays the price in having to support customers who have been given unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold sales teams accountable.

    Pros

    Solid company, with growth potential. Good working conditions. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    The company is generally a good place to work, but they are growing through acquisitions which affects job security. They tend to layoff staff with every acquisition. They sometimes acquire businesses they are unfamiliar with, which causes setbacks in growth when they don't listen to their knowledgeable employee base. Also lacks solid growth management planning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, not just your management. They have a wealth of experience and insight that your upper management doesn't have.

    Pros

    Several large divisions - opportunity to move laterally
    Bonus tied to overall P&L as well as sub-division P&L which is not always a good thing, since CEO decides which divisions get investment to grow revenues and profits

    Cons

    Lack of vision; investment in people (HR is a joke); promotions are hard to come by despite stellar year on year performance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring new blood; Time for the old guard to retire or recycle

    Pros

    Great benefits, company perks and wonderful corporate responsibility program. Great long term employees that want to do the right thing and work extremely hard to get things done.

    Cons

    Difficult environment to work in given the clear division amongst leadership. Company politics are extremely high and often impede on getting things done. Leadership at the RISK business level is consumed with competing amongst the other business units in hopes of getting promoted and often lose sight of what the business should be focused on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set your personal agendas aside in the best interest of the organization and your employees.
