    Pros

    There is significant potential to build a global information services business. The businesses need to be more integrated at the systems architecture level, and more nimble in proactively changing to meed client needs.

    Cons

    The organization has been poorly managed for years. This is reflected in all kinds of ways. Most of the mid-level and up managers went to c-level law schools, then went into business. That's a bad combo. LexisNexis has some really good people, but senior management has no technology background. Good ideas, which require some risk taking, have no way to make it into the products. The poor customer is almost totally ignored. There is a major disconnect between Dayton/New York, and the sales team and end users. LexisNexis is a laggard, which is a huge waste given some of the really smart people and huge resources the company has.

    Advice to Management

    Delayer the organization. Break it into smaller units with more discretionary control. Everyone but their sales team has lost touch with the customer. Simplify the decision making.

    Pros

    The promise of what the company should be. The cfompany has so much going for it but seems to be too slow to make the decisions required to keep the company healthy.It is fixable.There are great software products, great content, and great people.

    Cons

    Failure to keep produicts current. Failure to treat employees with respect. Destroying acquired companies. Not customer-focused. Falls behind the times in business and technology repeatedly.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention. Be concerned about the health of the products, businesses, and customer relationships. Not just the financials.I hear senior management saying some of the righ things. Middle management gets some of it wrong. People who are to execute on the plan are demoralized.
