    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good products though always seemed to be playing catch up to Westlaw, Last few years has been strong product growth

    Sales restructure most years has resulted in less field positions and more telephonic or sent off shore the the Philippians.

    Have a multi year plan and stick with it. Please stop recruiting people in one area then restructuring them out of a job12 or 18 months later.

    Pros

    Worked from Home was great and the equipment was provided. As long as you did you job you should be fine. If I worked in the office in Raleigh it would've been fantastic because they do Beer Bashes and other fun things locally that HBEs don't get to take advantage of.

    Cons

    Clear, consistent and concise communication was troublesome. There were times that you'd hear something from somebody that either didn't get cascaded down to the lower tiered employees. Hearing it through the grapevine was scary.
