    Pros

    The company is nice if you in the right department. Their LexisNexis Cares program is very worthwhile. They do allow employees the flexibility of working at home when needed.

    Cons

    Executive management is removed.

    Pros

    Lexis Nexis is a forward thinking legal company. I like the products they offer. I really enjoyed working for them.

    Cons

    The pay could be better, especially for legal professionals, but you shouldn't expect to be paid as a lawyer when you're not working as one.

    Pros

    Great people. Really care about the customer. People like to engage and work together to solve problems. Organization has been flattened and people are getting to know the leaders.

    Cons

    Tough competitive situation. Funding is being used to build out new products, which has created cost pressure on other areas. This has resulted in a number of positions being eliminated and remaining employees are very busy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Will have to stop cutting soon or will impact the business

    Pros

    Lots of smart people, tries to instill professionalism in practices, willing to innovate, generally good products.

    Cons

    A senior team that rotates frequently due to poor leadership and a ever changing vision. Often seems more interested in what the competition is doing rather than customers. Not a huge amount of respect of employees--just pieces to move around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top down doesn't always work. Try developing and communicating a vision and then letting divisions and teams execute.

    Pros

    Friends and a good environment. Good benefits. Food was good. Training was good. Management not good. Out of touch and play favorites.

    Cons

    Year over year goals increase but not territory. Bad managers that are not in tune with reality. Play favorites for who gets best territory. Are not dominant in market and new products are not good

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

    Pros

    LexisNexis has great benefits and compensation. The culture in many of their satellite offices is casual and what you would expect for an IT company in this day and age. Their home campus in Dayton is more business casual.

    Cons

    LexisNexis is losing money at an astronomical rate and as such they are cutting corners wherever they can in order to keep in their parent company Reed Elsevier's good graces. That includes laying off critical staff, outsourcing and offshoring development and QA, and closing offices. They put all of their eggs (as well as their capital) in one basket with their Lexis Advance product, and it has unfortunately been an utter failure. They are scrambling and paying dearly for it now. This used to be a great place to work, but I cannot in good conscience recommend employment here to anyone now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to your roots with regards to staff. Embrace the online digital "free" information culture. Value and respect your employees like you used to.

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits and people. Flexible work schedules to accommodate life's little necessities. The work was always fairly distributed, and you felt valued.

    Cons

    Culture has taken a turn, and cuts are constant. There are too few people to do the work of so many. Either people are getting cut or they're leaving on their own. It wasn't this way five years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Words are nice, but sincerity behind those words speaks volumes.
