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

    Pros

    It pays the rent. It's hard to come up with the 20 word minimum here. Working here is better than not having a job.

    Cons

    Attrition rate is high and pay is low. Technology is outdated. The free coffee doesn't come close to making up for these issues.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at who's minding the store (i.e., middle management). Also put some thought into why all the good people have left.

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

    Pros

    Excellent organization, well-run, good people. Really learned a lot while I was there. If you really want to learn legal news writing, this is a good place.

    Cons

    Can be a little quiet in the office and a little boring. People tend to keep to themselves, but they also work hard. Not the kind of place you can chat.

    Advice to Management

    Could use to have more meetings and more structure--the place remains too long in a rut and could use some spicing up sometimes.

    I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay. Flexible schedule. Needed 5 words.

    Cons

    Outsourcing is a high priority. They didn't spend millions on 2 facilities in the Philippines to keep jobs in 1st world countries. Upper management is not to be trusted. So keep that in mind. Not sure how I feel about their treatment of Infosys contractors.

    Advice to Management

    None. Beyond help.

    Pros

    The people, LexisNexis employees are hard working people who care about the business and each other

    Cons

    Senior executive leadership, they are unable to make their aggressive profit goals from sales so every 6 months we cut costs to make our goals. We aggressively moving most nontechnical positions to the Philippines including customer service, finance, editorial, marketing and sales. Employee moral is horrible.
