I have been working at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Outstanding, professional people
Great lifestyle balance
Interesting work

Cons

National Clearinghouse for ridiculous management ideas
About 5 years behind the curve for technology/management trends
Dysfunctional senior management, which trickles down to the entire organization-- not just the CEO, but at the higher level at Reed Elsevier.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop looking for quick fixes and stop trying to play Stock Market Roulette. Figure out what your core business is and take a little pride in it-- we don't have to constantly play catch-up. Your employees want the company to succeed as much as you do-- possibly more, since many of them have fewer opportunities to move on or relocate-- so you should listen to them and trust them. Great employees are your greatest asset, not a liability, so stop treating them like that. Respect their expertise and give them what they need to do their job and they will make you look great! And finally, catch up with the rest of the business world and stop trying to offshore all of our work. Most companies have already realized that this is a bad idea and costs more money that it saves and have started to bring the work back. For once, keep up and just stop trying to get untrained people with no expertise to do our work.

    Pros

    Compensation & Benefits are excellent, vacation and PTO Days great even for a newbie.

    Cons

    You never know when your role will be outsourced

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down the reorganization. Two or three a year is too many. Got to keep talent in house rather than always resorting to contractors to do it for you.

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

    Pros

    If you bust it here, you will be rewarded, that is if the company has the commission structure set up properly. Great resources and flex schedule for sales people. Very politically liberal environment. Friendly to minorities and ALT lifestyles. Fun place to work hard and play hard. Some great leaders in the company that wanted to mentor and help you succeed!

    Cons

    Commission structure, position title, product, and the manager changed every year while I was there. Some mediocre mangers that did not want to mentor. I have heard from MANY current employees that you just cant make money there anymore. You can also get laid off in a heartbeat when the company reorgs every (literally) three years regardless of how much you are liked or how long you have worked there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your sales people commission wise!
