    Pros

    The company offered a flexible work schedule and set you up with a home office. They also had great perks and contests which would increase earning potential. Top sales people won trips to fabulous locations. Invests in the growth of heir employees,

    Cons

    It seemed were working all the time as critical emails which needed to be responded to would go out over the weekend at all hours of the day or night.

    Advice to Management

    At times it felt like there was favoritism that went on. Also, in my particular case I got stuck with a manager who was going through in vitro, was distracted, did not pay attention to the reports I was sending regarding a particular client and then tried to throw me under the bus to get fired when her boss came down on her. No one interviewed me to get my side of the story. The only thing that saved me was that when she had to go out on complete bed rest, her boss' right hand man took over and only had rave reviews for me. My advice is to have a fair hearing and not just take a manager at their word.

    Pros

    Great people on the day to day basis. Clear project expectations and rates that must be achieved.

    Cons

    Work is mundane. Talks about quality but really wants quantity. Low paying jobs unless you are in sales. Doubled my salary when I left. It's a shame they do not reward loyal employees. Raise starting salaries for new incoming people, but those that were here for years get the shaft.

    Advice to Management

    You talk a good game about work life balance, but it the end it is all lip service. Quantity is what is rewarded; not quality.

    Pros

    USA: Working from home/ work life balance, decent health plan (at least compared to other companies' plans), intelligent co-workers (at least those who are left), interesting projects. Nice office. Part of the RELX publishing group so there are opportunities for lateral moves other career opportunities in our sister companies. Offices around the world if you want to travel (and have a good reason for visiting them)

    Cons

    Yearly downsizing in US offices as positions are off-shored. Work load keeps increasing while compensation goes down (at least for those who had a 35 hour week increased to 40 hours without a change in salary so they make less per hour). Quality of our products continue to go down. Penny pinching. Little chance for advancement or a decent raise unless you move to an entirely different RELX company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop destroying/ devaluing analytical. We make the money for you. Stop devaluing your talent pool. Get rid of some chiefs and hire some "Indians," especially lawyers who know things about lawyers' needs that marketing people just don't get.

    Pros

    Being at LexisNexis has given me the opportunity to expand my career. I've been with the organization for 3.5 years and after 2.5 years I was promoted. Work hard and be rewarded.

    Cons

    Communication across all business units need to be improved. Unfortunately employees don't know what's going on in different business units. It would be good to share what's going on so all are aware.

    Advice to Management

    I think great changes have been made to the organization, and trust that the work is getting done. We might want to better communicate the changes in all business units to all employees, not those that are on distributions lists.

    Great co-workers who are smart, motivated, and dedicated. If you're willing to put in the work, lots of room to grow professionally and evolve your skills. Engaging and challenging project work. Purpose-driven company with focus on advancing the rule of law around the world.

    Cons

    Technology and products are rapidly evolving to meet customer needs. Have to be comfortable with moving quick, lean teams, lots of collaboration and creatively working to solve challenges/obstacles.

    Advice to Management

    To strengthen our flattened org structure - continue to build culture where everyone can have a voice and openness through info sharing.
