I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time for more than a year

Pros

Training, colleagues are supportive of one another.

Cons

It does not offer the tools that sales people need to be successful such as a CRM that actually works. Further, there are too many sales people working the same account (different products) and they call on the same people. As a result, it becomes difficult to schedule appointments and this creates an environment in which the reps are competing for the clients' time. Salaries and commissions are quite low.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There are some things such as those mentioned above that could be addressed quite simply and would make a big difference in your employees' productivity.

    Frequent passive-aggressive behavior and contemptuous attitudes in the N.C. software business. But interesting products.

    I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    The company is making headway into SaaS (software as a service) and reorganizes often to stay atop a dynamic market.

    Cons

    Reorganizes often to stay atop a dynamic market.. Several managers seem to have passive-aggressive behaviors that (apart from the obvious personal drawbacks) result in many meetings to pin people down to commitments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More modeling and rewarding of humility and the celebration of others could reduce communications stonewalling and employee attrition.

    I have been working at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Friendly people, good atmosphere. Can't speak for corporate, only local division. Good BLSS leadership.

    Cons

    Departments are still in silos. Problems are "somebody else's" and sharing of loads between groups can be painful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a better office building. 15+ years is way too long to be in one spot; the facilities are not laid out in a way to inspire creativity or interaction. Stop letting the small clients dictate our priorities; be proactive rather than reactive. Say "no" or "pay us to do it" when clients want something out of scope for free.
