    I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible, good to great pay, generally great benefits (although they've been slowly decreasing over the last several years), a lot of diverse technologies and platforms to work on (also could be a con). A lot of very bright and great coworkers.

    Cons

    Nothing but reorganizations with continual layoffs (often of some of the best, brightest, and most experienced folks) for the last 3 - 5 years (some might say even longer than that). I believe some of the leadership has good vision but is hampered by the senior leadership (CEO/CTO/CFO) from being able to execute on that vision so there's constant back and forth that is demoralizing to say the least. Since I've been gone, there have already been a few reorganizations (again) within the company, and one of them was a major reorg. Crazy considering that I left as a part of a major reorganization that was supposed to fix everything. But that's the problem right there -- instead of actually figuring out the real problem and tackling it, no matter how painful, senior leadership thinks they can replace one or more of the sub-leaders (various VP's and senior VP's), reorganize the department, and fix all the problems. Senior leadership has been using this approach for several years and it hasn't worked yet! When will they figure out that they're a part of the problem? I do think there needs to be a reorganization -- Reed Elsevier (parent company) needs to reorganize LexisNexis by replacing senior leadership (CEO, CTO, and CFO). Only then will the company even have a chance of surviving. Although I was offered multiple positions when my position/department was eliminated, the only way I would consider working at LexisNexis again, short of some ridiculous offer, would be if senior leadership was changed since they have been in place for several years and have continued to just make things worse and worse. The only thing the current senior leadership is concerned with is the bottom line profits. So while they continue to cut expenses (mostly by cutting people), they are actually making the problem worse by removing the ability for the product teams to add any real value to the products for their customers. The only folks left barely have the time to just maintain the products and often don't have a very good understanding of what they're doing. That's because all of the most experienced folks seem to be the ones that are let go or who leave on their own because they see that they're on a dead-end path.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At one point in time I would have said something to the effect of, "Wake up." But at this point the only thing that I think will help is for you to just move on. Not only would it be the best thing for the company, but it would probably even be better for you since you would no longer have the stress of trying to keep the company's bottom line looking decent so you don't get fired.
