    Pros

    Working one on one with team members for the sake of the business. Resolving issues with the legal publications on errors with content and formatting. Good atmosphere with some moral boosting activities (pot luck activities). The supervision and management worked well with you, not demanding. Get paid time off, including paid time off on holidays. Good working hours, day shift only, no weekend shifts.

    Cons

    Lacking good leadership, could not make snap decisions. Lots of personal biases of how the final product should look like, trying to emphasize looks rather than content and functionality with the legal publications, in print or online.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to your people and see to the needs of the customer. (The customer is not the ROD for the Official Reporter publications. The real customer are the ones who use the product). The customer doesn't care about aesthetics, they want accurate information no matter how it is presented.


  3. Good perks and headed in right direction

    Pros

    The company appears to be turning the corner in spite of challenging environment. Recent hires in the executive level help drive a better focus. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Very slow to make decisions and needs lots of people to say yes to a project but plenty of individuals appear able to say no. LN does not pay very high but I guess the benefits make up for that!

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating and helping the teams beneath you to execute. There is a large and willing group of employees who want us all to succeed.

    Pros

    Lexis offers a premium product, benefits, and potential for great work life balance. The culture at Lexis is very supportive offering excellent training and career enhancing programs.

    Cons

    The downside is you will likely make substantially less than similar jobs in the same industry. Also, Lexis tends to do major restructure every two to three years.

    Pros

    Good benefits, bonus, some very talented people among the many miscreants

    Cons

    Constant layoffs, "growth" achieved by budget cuts

    Advice to Management

    The parts are worth more than the whole; set them free and divest! Sell core business to Reuters and RE stock will soar.

    Pros

    Being at LexisNexis has given me the opportunity to expand my career. I've been with the organization for 3.5 years and after 2.5 years I was promoted. Work hard and be rewarded.

    Cons

    Communication across all business units need to be improved. Unfortunately employees don't know what's going on in different business units. It would be good to share what's going on so all are aware.

    Advice to Management

    I think great changes have been made to the organization, and trust that the work is getting done. We might want to better communicate the changes in all business units to all employees, not those that are on distributions lists.

    Pros

    Great co-workers who are smart, motivated, and dedicated. If you're willing to put in the work, lots of room to grow professionally and evolve your skills. Engaging and challenging project work. Purpose-driven company with focus on advancing the rule of law around the world.

    Cons

    Technology and products are rapidly evolving to meet customer needs. Have to be comfortable with moving quick, lean teams, lots of collaboration and creatively working to solve challenges/obstacles.

    Advice to Management

    To strengthen our flattened org structure - continue to build culture where everyone can have a voice and openness through info sharing.

    Great people to work with. Lots of great mentors and caring individuals. Great opportunities for career development for those who are driven to take advantage of same.

    Cons

    Recently lots of changes and restructuring and loss of critical experience/knowledge. Challenging for managers, employees and customers.

    Advice to Management

    More planning prior to large layoffs to ensure knowledge base is not lost and customer commitments continue to be met.
