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

    Pros

    Transition is a good time to get new types of experience, and to start over with new relationships with upper management.

    Cons

    joint venture changes the culture of the company quite a bit, very pared down community involvement and team building which can be supported by the original umbrella but is not part of the joint venture effort

    Advice to Management

    See what can be taken from the original managing company that can boost moral during transition - support activities that keep energy high - they are not all things with a high financial cost outright, but loss of them may contribute to loss of productivity, with will affect bottom line.

    I have been working at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lexis Nexis has a proud history and was truly a great company 10-15 years ago. At least according to the veterans on our team, there used to be a climate of innovation, collaboration, and building value for our paying customers and for society at large.

    Cons

    While this is a great legacy, it is no long applicable today. Today Lexis Nexis is struggling to survive, fighting changes on several fronts: - changing technology (everything is based on the internet) - changing values in our culture (people don't want to pay for information anymore) - regulation Today the company's primary concern isn't building value, it's preserving it. This means cutting costs no matter what the cost (no pun intended..) Teams are being outsourced, metrics are more important than ideas, and our teams are micromanaged. This results in an incredibly uncomfortable workplace where there isn't motivation or excitement.

    Advice to Management

    think about the long term future, not just about the next quarter's results.

    I have been working at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been with LN for 2 years now, and I am confident saying that the company is only interested in bottom line financials.

    Cons

    Employees are only important when they bring value. If a division, team, or person's project is deemed to be not of value by upper management, the entire team can be laid off. More and more work is being outsourced to save costs, so this keeps most of the company on our toes as we wonder what the next division or position to be outsourced is.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of employees. We're the people who are building the company and working for you full time.

    I have been working at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    LexisNexis was formerly a great company with an outstanding mandate and vision. As such, many employees have been around for a long time and are committed to that vision. These coworkers are great people from whom I have learned a lot. Working around GCS brings energy and is stimulating.

    Cons

    Company leadership is afraid to commit to a vision and long term strategy. The only interest is continuing to mine the traditional business models and there is an overall resistance to innovation. There is little job security as more and more positions are being outsourced unless your in sales or business development.

    Advice to Management

    Build long term value.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good benefits. Can be very interesting work.

    Cons

    Long, long, long hours are the norm. Certain departments (Editorial) are in constant fear of layoffs. Layoffs never seem to get the true dead wood. The culture of layoffs and down-sizing does not bring out the best in the workforce. The general consensus is that Mike Walsh is very ill-suited to his job.

    Advice to Management

    Mike Walsh, please move on before you drive this business completely into the ground.
