I have been working at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Salary and benefits are very competitive, work environment is positive and flexible. The ability to work remotely is especially popular, since many get their best work done away from the office. Work-life balance, health and wellness are strongly promoted, with policies and resources to match. As an engineer, I have all of the resources I need to get my job done. It's a good place to work for a short time (2-3 years).

Cons

Cost-cutting, especially through several rounds of layoffs, has led to the impression that senior leaders are "penny-wise, but pound-foolish", making tactical decisions with long-term negative impacts. Without commenting on the business impact, massive job offshoring in the past few years, coupled with incessant reorganization, has widely impacted the loyalty, trust and enthusiasm of remaining employees. LexisNexis is almost half a century old - ancient for a technology company - and is clinging in places to what seem like stodgy, out-dated management principles and techniques.

Advice to Management

Your employees have an organizational trust problem. It's hard to believe in your company when the others around you - who also believed in you - got their jobs shipped off to India. Stabilize your workforce, and then the enthusiasm might return.

    I have been working at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As with any large organization, there are some really good people here doing good work. Every business unit has its own pros, cons and internal dynamics so some of the problems occurring in the company overall or in one business unit may not affect others.

    Cons

    The company goes through a major reorganization every 18 months or so to "create synergies" or to "improve our competitive position." In reality, upper management has been grasping at straws for years now to try and figure out what's actually working and what isn't. If you are looking for a job where you are rewarded and recognized for generating good/great results, you may be disappointed with what you find here. If you are looking for a place where you can be mediocre but rely on your ability to talk a good game and demonstrate your mastery of office politics, apply now. This place is cut-throat and there appears to be no connection between actual job performance and opportunities for career advancement.

    Relaxed work environment, flexible with personal life.

    Way below market value salary

    Advice to Management

    It appears as if you take employee surveys then immediately throw them in the trash.
