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

    Pros

    Continues to invest in it's technology infrastructure and evolve to become a next-gen company in the professional information space. There's an entrepreneurial feel because it runs lean - if you're committed to driving a strategic agenda, there's lots of great opportunity.

    Company is filled with sharp, talented people - which often makes team work and cross functional work fun, exciting. The company is also active in work to advance the rule of law and help local communities with it's Cares program.

    Cons

    Would like to see more diversity and women in leadership roles. Company is on the right track - but we need more.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to break down barriers and help us connect with colleagues across business units globally.

    Pros

    Great people, interesting work, good pay, flexible, and quite frankly the most rewarding mission I've been part of in my career.

    Cons

    Legal is not a bleeding edge industry(yet). Other than that, this job is better than any other I've had.

    Advice to Management

    In the battle between the steam and the rock, the stream always wins, not by brute force, but by fortitude.

    Pros

    Fantastic co-workers. Most of middle management is hard-working and tries to promote interests of customers and employees.

    Cons

    Constantly downsizing and off-shoring in the last few years. They do away with some of their best talent for what looks like very little gain.

    Advice to Management

    Consider that one of the functions of business is to provide jobs to talented people who help maintain the quality of your products.
