    I have been working at LexisNexis Risk Solutions full-time

    Pros

    - Scrum and Kanban followed. Not best practice but efforts are being made to improve this. - Environment gradually becoming more relaxed and creative. - You will gain experience in legacy codebases, frameworks and processes....

    Cons

    - Promotions and progression are not well managed whatsoever within technology. Unless you get chummy with upper management, it ain't gonna happen. - Role "levels" (I, II, III, Senior, etc) only represent what you're paid, not how much you're valued or level of contribution or responsibilities. No one really knows how to get from one to the other. - Turnover in technology is very high, mainly due to the above... points. - The tech stack is sold with keywords like "docker", "laravel", "PHP7", when in reality only a minority of the tech stack lives up to this. Prepare yourself for legacy codebases, ancient frameworks where the "technology roadmap" (which no one seems to be able to locate) includes upgrading some time in the future, and virtually no CI/CD. - Manual processes and meetings will fill your day. - Decision making is often top down, which conflicts with the Agile process and stifles creativity. - Technology department is vastly underpaid compared with other departments. In a team of 3-8, most of which developers, the product owner is often paid 3 times that of a single developer. In some cases, this reaches 6 figures.

    Advice to Management

    - Invest much more in the people working in your technology department. If you do that, you won't need to keep trying to hire to fill the seats being left empty by unsatisfied Engineers. - Listen to your Engineers instead of delegating top down. They are clever people very good at solving problems or even coming up with new ones given the right information, don't hide them away from the market so much. - The... product owner in a scrum team is NOT the boss in that team. Unfortunately, the whole business model is set up this way. This makes Engineers feel like they aren't trusted to make decisions, they lose interest and motivation, and eventually leave. This needs to change, and so do the salary differences. Maybe start with that. - Find a better way to promote the Engineers you already have, and the attrition rate will vastly improve.

    I worked at LexisNexis Risk Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance is great. Flexible working hours 401K is good.

    Cons

    Less number of fulltime employees. They offer utter low pay for full-time employees. People are sticking to the company mainly due to work life balance. Work is not challenging. Technology stack is kind of old and they use lot of internal technologies.

    Advice to Management

    Dont try to hire qualified people for very less pay. Please pay well.

    I have been working at LexisNexis Risk Solutions

    Pros

    Work/life balance is good. Training is made readily available.

    Cons

    Easy to get stuck in one spot. Pay raises and promotions are once per year and nonnegotiable. So if you don't get what you hoped for, you're basically SOL until evaluation time.

    I worked at LexisNexis Risk Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people with the most part. Great co-workers. Decent work environment. Pay is on the high end of market. Good 401k plan but not so good on healthcare (high deductibles and cost). Good yearly bonus.

    Cons

    Complex and over abstracted architecture. Hard to get information needed to complete work. Need to chase people to get access to anything. Mangers were laid back but attentive.

    Advice to Management
