I have been working at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time

Pros

Great team and middle management. Dedicated, smart people, though many of them are contractors and not full-time employees. Decent salaries and benefits. Large, reputable corporation behind this division.

Cons

Poor upper management and little to no communication with employees at large. A major shift is taking place that employees know about but management will not reveal, killing morale. Lots of water cooler doom talk. Rumors of further layoffs. Seemingly no day-to-day management of workforce. No path for future advancement, except maybe for MBA/think tank types.

Advice to Management

See cons and address those, if improving this company is a priority that management is interested in.

    I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    LexisNexis cares about the employees and clients, and seeks to maintain positive relationships with all.

    Cons

    The company is currently working on outsourcing a lot of work, which means that there has been some departmental reorganization and layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Many of your employees are worried about their jobs, and with good reason. Hearing about how much work was being shipped offshore was a constant worry.

    "Frequent passive-aggressive behavior and contemptuous attitudes in the N.C. software business. But interesting products."

    I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is making headway into SaaS (software as a service) and reorganizes often to stay atop a dynamic market.

    Cons

    Reorganizes often to stay atop a dynamic market.. Several managers seem to have passive-aggressive behaviors that (apart from the obvious personal drawbacks) result in many meetings to pin people down to commitments.

    Advice to Management

    More modeling and rewarding of humility and the celebration of others could reduce communications stonewalling and employee attrition.
