    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.

    Pros

    The pace of change seems to accelerate every year. Very customer focused company, The company is transforming its product and business technology. Leadership appears willing to take heavy criticism as they drive difficult change through its business. Frequent changes create protest at times with tough employee impacts. If you enjoy an exciting transformation of products, technologies and processes - this is the company to work for. If it scares you, then I wouldn't work here. Exciting developments in machine learning, and AI, as well as product development processes, mean more technology change. Super collaborative and respectful culture. Competitive benefits.

    Cons

    Management continues to change established roles, organizations and locations. Coupled with what must be record high investment in new technologies and solutions, this is a fast changing environment that's not for everyone. Tough impacts to some employees as the company transforms

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time sharing the successes, not just giving the tough news.
