No opinion of CEO

Pros

Diverse opportunities throughout the organization - from IT, to sales, marketing, data mining, project and product management, customer service and support - there's a lot to do here.

Cons

Bachelor Degree might get you into sales or Customer Support, but anything more than that the premium is on an advanced degree - MBA, and especially, JD. If you only have a BA or BS, you're only going to go so far.

Advice to Management

There are plenty of capable folks in your employment who don't have a JD or MBA, but have plenty of experience with the company. Management can do a better job of giving these people opportunities throughout the organization.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    LN really cares about the community and giving back to others. Somewhat flexible with using your PTO.

    Cons

    Too many people think they are your manager. Execs often forget that if it was for none execs, they wouldn't be in there position. Management will ask for feedback but do nothing with the feedback. Certain departments you cannot get out off, if your good they want to keep you there. There are execs who you do not report to, determine your future. If you have "friends" here, your golden.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the "little" people, we are in the trenches and we know more than you think.

    Pros

    Extremely knowledgeable people
    Very passionate, committed coworkers
    Decent benefits
    Decent work/life balance, though its up to you to monitor it - they'll take all they can get
    Local teams of business-side and development-side people work well together and respect each other

    Cons

    The local business and development organization is very competant, professional, and gets a lot done. In fact, the Litigation Solutions division is one of the few LexisNexis groups that has met it's sales goals and continued to grow. The big problem is when the corporate office decides to treat this division as just another regional office and makes cookie cutter decisions that have serious negative impacts. In addition, this division is a developer of PC and web-based software applications for the litigation discovery process, and senior management has no idea how to develop software applications. They are "leaders" who have a content background, not a software development background. As a result, they try to make changes to a system that works well, in order to make it fit in with the other divisions, because it's more work to have different processes and practices.

    Advice to Management

    Let the local management teams make the decisions on how to succeed - if they deliver, why not give them the authority to decide how to operate?
    Take a serious look at the trade-offs being made in regards to integrity and valuing your people, in the name of doing whatever it takes to get products out.
