    I have been working at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    LexisNexis wants to make sure that you know you are apart of a family. They help out their employees and they also care about the community.

    Cons

    As of right now I really not have any cons about LexisNexis. They are always improving to make it a great work place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    There's a lot of energy in this company. Tech employees from top to bottom have the chance to make a real impact. Lots of transition as the company has been scaling agile, but some really cool things are starting to happen as a result. Lots of emphasis on metrics. Company treats people well.

    Cons

    There's a lot change going on which sometimes can be overwhelming.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on transparency, give people time to catch their breath!

    Pros

    Very professional, caring company. Lots of opportunity. Always have employees in mind! Been here 2 and half years.

    Cons

    Really nothing negative. Territory assignments can sometimes make success difficult but ultimately if you work them hard it is noticed and leadership rewards with more productive territories.

    I have been working at LexisNexis Legal & Professional part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This job has been a great way to make connections and earn some money during Law School. My hours are flexible, and my superiors are always willing to work with me if there is any problem that I encounter on the job.

    Cons

    There are a limited number of hours per school for Student Representatives, and those are split among several team members. This means that sometimes it is hard to get enough hours per week in a semester.

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

    Pros

    Excellent team members, interesting technical and operational issues to work on, great benefits (401k match, PTO, etc). Fair work/life balance - work hard, play hard if you were a performer.

    Cons

    Constant lay-offs in response to shrinking revenues and need to pay for significant back-end investments. Management can't stick to a goal for more than a year; when it gets tough, they fold.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your staff to do the hard work. When it gets tough, back them up.

    Pros

    Home based sales so you have some flexibility

    Cons

    Layoffs are rampant and you tend to get nervous close to the end of any quarter.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out your capital spending so you can stop making up your lost margins by eliminating your people

    Pros

    You work with smart people that get things done.

    Cons

    There is no job security. Jobs moved overseas.

    Advice to Management

    The overseas folks are not keeping up like you think. It is the people in the states in the background that are fixing everything.

    I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A lot of long time employees, and plenty of fantastic talent throughout. Good growth opportunities if you can learn to navigate the politics.

    Cons

    Large company politics is a very big thing here, and if you don't want to play the game you will suffer.

    Not working at one of the two main campus locations (Ohio or North Carolina) will seriously limit your career. Over my many years I saw countless teams marginalized or let go based almost exclusively on the fact that they were located elsewhere in one of the many remote offices that have accumulated from years of acquisitions.

    Advice to Management

    For a company that almost exclusively provides technology products and services, you need to let your technology leaders have a more powerful voice at the table when decisions are being made. Years of business decisions without a focus on good technology practices have lead to enormous amounts of technical debt that a group of technology professionals have been fighting against tirelessly. You don't need to reverse direction - just listen to them.
