    Pros

    A company with a mission that you beleive in, people in the trenches that are intelligent and civil, and interesting work.

    Cons

    Lost opportunity Another once great conpany, thought leader in fact, on the decline due to leadership complacency, risk aversity, politics, and infighting. Sad.

    Advice to Management

    Drink your own champagne. You want change in culture, then lead! You’re shutting down Dayton, OH and growing Raleigh, NC. How many Executives and Senior Leaders permanantly live in NC, as opposed to owning a condo and flying in? Where do CxO’s live, not NC?

    Pick a problem and solve it, rather than picking a shiny solution and hoping your problems go away.

    Comment. One star rating are zero star ratings, but Glassdoor does bot permit zero stars. Other ratings are actual.

    I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time

    Pros

    The team I worked with comprised talented, intelligent writers, so their recruitment was high level (or maybe the job prospects were negative enough that they managed to attract numerous overqualified professionals).

    Cons

    The management was always trying to cut costs and time at the expense of the product and the employees. In the end, it felt like a factory focused on volume production, devoid of creativity and innovation. When Lexis Nexis was bought out by Internet Brands, the environment slid further downhill.

    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 Technology is outdated.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.

    Management afraid to weed out employees with bad attitudes and those employees who comprise other employees....bad internal controls....

    Advice to Management

    Start by getting rid of the internal employees that are combative with other employees....
