    I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional

    Pros

    Focused on cost base and making the sale at any expense

    Cons

    Absolutely short term mentality in everything the company does from development through to talent management and personnel aspects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a realistic strategy, and investment plan that starts with the deployment of product portfolio so you can actually understand what it costs to deliver the services you sell. Get out of the markets and customers that are not profitable.

    Pros

    It is a large company with a little bit of stability. They have a lot of room to grow if you work hard.

    Cons

    Management in certain areas can be tough here. If you land under the wrong group you could have a rough time with the company.

    Pros

    Great product, good people for the most part. Generally good benefits.

    Cons

    Lot of changes with management. Really dislike the views of our new management. Sales jobs are becoming more and more micromanaged. New leaders are really hurting the company both in customer service and overall employee morale. Earnings (commissions) for sales positions are getting lower each year on average. Base salary is a lot lower than what is found in the market...not competitive at all. Furthermore, almost all reps get the same base, whether you have been there 1 year or 15 years.

    Pros

    Great leadership and team culture. Co workers were great and very interesting work! Very good and gratifying training and team building events.

    Cons

    Not allot to say on the con side of things, I think smart coders and SQL gurus do not always make for good managers of people. I needed more opportunity for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When promoting look for people skills. You are only going to be as good as the people you develop and surround yourself with.

    I have been working at LexisNexis Legal & Professional as a contractor (more than a 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    Generally a good company, with good products and good income potential

    Cons

    Some misguided management. They repeatedly invest in the wrong parts of their CRM and it's useless...no it's worse, it's a detriment to most users. And there's some disconnect between upper management and the "street" - so if your middle manager is good, it's OK, but if the middle manager just does whatever upper management wants, it interferes with getting things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know it's painful, but you need to either completely pull the plug on the CRM, or put someone else in charge of it and make it functional for your customer-facing reps. It's not even close, and missing BASIC capabilities.
