LexisNexis spirit - Fall Fest 2018!
There's never been a more exciting time to join the LexisNexis Legal & Professional team.
Our goal is to revolutionize the way customers in legal, corporate, tax, government, academic and non-profit organizations work by combining a deep understanding of their needs, emerging technologies and powerful content and software.
Our teams are developing and delivering what was once unimaginable through the use of Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, the Cloud and Open Source tools.
As a team and in collaboration with customers and key actors, we’re in a unique position to transform the industry through information, technology and analytics while having a powerful, positive impact on society by advancing the rule of law.
As rule of law increases in any given country, access to decent work and economic growth tends to rise, families are able to lift themselves out of poverty, innovation and infrastructure are stimulated, health and well-being increase, and there are reduced inequalities and acts of violence, including improvement in gender equality. See our Rule of Law Impact Tracker and read more here.
The rule of law is the foundation for the development of peaceful, equitable and prosperous societies. We believe that for the rule of law to be effective, there must be equality under the law, transparency of law, an independent judiciary and access to legal remedy.
Yet, about half of the world’s population live outside the shelter of the law. That’s 4 billion people struggling for their basic, human rights on a daily basis.
At LexisNexis Legal & Professional, our underlying purpose as a business is to advance the rule of law around the world. We’re working to bring the percentage of people living outside the umbrella protection of the rule of law down to zero through our day-to-day business operations, products and services, and actions as a corporate citizen.
This work is led through the efforts and creativity of our 10,000 people and in collaboration with customers and stakeholders in law firms, courts, businesses, governments, academia, associations, NGOs and the United Nations. Because progress is possible when we join together.
LexisNexis Legal & Professional is part of the RELX Group, along with LexisNexis Risk Solutions, Elsevier and Reed Exhibitions. LexisNexis Legal & Professional support the RELX Group Diversity & Inclusion approach below.
Our people are our strength. Our workforce of about 30,000 people has an average length of service of nine years.
Our people team is responsible for recruiting talented individuals and helping them develop in their role. We provide innovative learning and development opportunities for our employees and work with them to create an inclusive culture that enables a high-performing and engaged workforce.
At RELX Group we are passionate about making a positive impact on society and customers through our unique contributions as a business including access to information, advance of science and health, protection of society, promotion of the rule of law and access to justice, and fostering communities. We are fully committed to creating a fair and equitable work environment for our people and in all the countries and territories in which we operate we seek to comply with local employment and equality laws.
We want RELX Group to be a great place to work, where our employees feel valued, have equal opportunities and pay equality, regardless of their gender, gender identity, national origin, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, age or disability status.
Diversity and Inclusion are important to our future. We need the engagement of people from a wide range of backgrounds, experiences and ideas to achieve real innovation for our customers around the world.
Our Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Vision, set out above, articulates our commitment to a diverse workforce and an environment that respects individuals and their contributions. Our D&I Strategy is focused on translating the Vision into practical action. Among its commitments is maintaining a D&I Advisory Group composed of a senior business and HR leader from each business unit, supported by a broader D&I Working Group.
We also have more than 35 Employee Resource Groups across the Group, such as women’s forums and LGBT groups, to facilitate support, mentoring and community involvement.
Our workforce is 51% female and 49% male. There are 43% female and 57% male managers, and 29% female and 71% male senior operational managers. Women make up 36% of the members of the RELX Boards.
We remain committed to promoting and enabling equal opportunity, regardless of gender, at every level in our organization.
To enable parity across all levels, we have undertaken several initiatives.
Recent examples of progress include:
Our D&I initiatives across the Group encompass our employees, our customers and our broader community:
Our reward philosophy aims to support the company’s ability to attract, motivate and retain high performing employees. Our reward principles are underpinned by external equity, internal equity and pay for performance.
We follow rigorous internal processes of one over one approvals and carry out internal audits to ensure pay parity for employees doing the same or similar work in a geography. Additionally, we have a whistle-blower process via an internal hotline to ensure that any issue can be reported without prejudice.
RELX Group serves customers in more than 180 countries and has offices in about 40 countries. We are committed to following all local employee legislation, regulations and laws.
We conduct regular surveys to gather employee feedback. In 2017, we conducted pulse surveys across the business to hear from employees about how we are doing to make RELX Group a great place to work.
Our employees have the right to a healthy and safe workplace, as outlined in our Global Health and Safety Policy. While we comply with all employee-related reporting requirements, we are also committed to promoting workplace well-being of our employees. In the US, where we have the largest presence of employees, the CareConnect and REACH programs promote workplace well-being through health screenings and various health awareness programs and incentives.
Our annual Fit2Win global well-being competition encourages employees to establish fitness teams to compete for cash prizes for charities of their choice. In 2017, 106 teams took part and ran, walked, cycled and swam a total of 93,457 miles.
Dedicated health and well-being programs are now available to more than 19,000 employees around the world, equating to over 60 percent of our employees.

I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time (More than a year)
The Lexis Brand is very highly regarded. It's an easy sell into law firms who need legal research and online regulations. Worked without being micromanaged. Pay was good and was president trips
The umbrella of offerings was a bit overwhelming.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at LexisNexis Legal & Professional (Dayton, OH) in July 2014.
I applied through a recruiter, and received a request for an interview within a few days. Initially was a telephone interview and then followed up with an in-person interview with the team a few days later. Upon arrival I met with the team in a conference room with a projector screen, then we went over some previous projects I've worked on as well as some source code. Most of the process was going over a little bit of 'code review' as well as a conversation regarding their project and current challenges. At the end of the interview I felt confident that I would be resourceful to the team.
