    I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, reasonable benefits, lots of interesting work to do. The company still has a some excellent individual contributors.

    Cons

    LN is weakest of the RELX portfolio of companies with questionable long term outlook. Poor management climate. Frustration at all levels is extremely high. No job security. In habit of cutting costs (people, training, improvements) to keep profit looking good for annual report. Closing Dayton OH office and aggressively laying off workers. They even layoff workers in Raleigh NC office where they are trying to build a "center of excellence".

    Advice to Management

    Cost cutting is not a survivable business strategy. Foster innovation by listening to and empowering individual contributors.

    Pros

    Company has a great culture. Used to have good work/life balance. Great people. Respected company in industry. Interesting work. Amazing clients.

    Cons

    Company has been downsizing and laying off very good people. Everyone is wondering what the end game is. Cannot make as much money. Products need to be more cutting edge.

    Advice to Management

    Stop downsizing and focus on the talent that you currently have.

    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.
