    Pros

    Great leadership and team culture. Co workers were great and very interesting work! Very good and gratifying training and team building events.

    Cons

    Not allot to say on the con side of things, I think smart coders and SQL gurus do not always make for good managers of people. I needed more opportunity for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When promoting look for people skills. You are only going to be as good as the people you develop and surround yourself with.

    I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Generally a good company, with good products and good income potential

    Cons

    Some misguided management. They repeatedly invest in the wrong parts of their CRM and it's useless...no it's worse, it's a detriment to most users. And there's some disconnect between upper management and the "street" - so if your middle manager is good, it's OK, but if the middle manager just does whatever upper management wants, it interferes with getting things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know it's painful, but you need to either completely pull the plug on the CRM, or put someone else in charge of it and make it functional for your customer-facing reps. It's not even close, and missing BASIC capabilities.

    Pros

    The benefits of working for an industry giant like LexisNexis include the ability to profit off of the interaction of multiple business elements to produce new and interesting products from individual groups.

    Cons

    An overall focus from upper management on outsourcing key tasks overseas leads not only to job instability, but a certain sloppiness and inaccuracy of data as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on employee development and less so on outsourcing.
