    I have been working at LexisNexis Legal & Professional as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    I feel never overwhelmed here. I find it very easy to get help from the team, and most of us have a positive attitude. They are not strict about what time you come in or what time you leave, and you can work from home for just about any reason. People who have to take time off usually get the time off as well, and again, for any reason. The work life balance is so strong that I could see it giving people a new sense of entitlement. They do not micromanage either. Just do your job, make sure you are available during the meetings, and put your best foot forward.

    Cons

    The work pace is a little too slow for me. The worklife balance is shifted too far on life for me as well. I do feel under-utilized. Sometimes I have to wait days for other team-members from around the world to finish something just so I can continue working on it. I personally find the slow-paced environment a hinderance and am afraid I'll get a sense of entitlement that does not exist in any other company.

    I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lexis Nexis is a forward thinking legal company. I like the products they offer. I really enjoyed working for them.

    Cons

    The pay could be better, especially for legal professionals, but you shouldn't expect to be paid as a lawyer when you're not working as one.

    Pros

    Great product, good incentives, competitive environment, great training

    Cons

    Sketchy on charge-back pay on old accounts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to retain tenured reps who are facing mountains of charge backs from revolving account managers mismanaging accounts.

    I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Professional, hard working people who are easy to collaborate with and more than willing to help you build internal networks (important when you come to LN via an acquisition). Great sales coaching, training, etc. LN values its sales team and is committed to giving the necessary tools to succeed. Provide an important service to their customers and take community involvement, giving back, etc., seriously.

    Cons

    The legal research industry as a whole is changing and LN is no different. That's not necessarily a bad thing though since just as many doors are opened as they are closed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for investing so much in my professional sales growth and training.

    Pros

    Great senior management in the software division with some fantastic hires in the last year or so. Treats employees fairly and rewards top performers. Awesome focus on philanthropy through LexisCares.

    Cons

    Work/life balance gets tested but not often. Need to make equity more available to employees to drive retention of top talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in your people.

    Pros

    The Benefits and compensation are good. Time off for personal family emergencies is easily gained. You can have as much latitude that you need or want as long as you preform. Tolerant of all!

    Cons

    It is a very PC company which seems to have too much middle management. I left because I wanted to transfer to a different position but my VP or manager stopped me from interviewing telling me I was to valuable to the division.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of some middle managers
