    I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people make the difference at LexisNexis. It is a community of employees that help each other learn, grow and drive to success

    Cons

    The senior management can be a little rigid. They are determined to take all technical jobs to North Carolina and not invest heavily in Ohio anymore. This company was built by the talented men and women in Ohio and it's unfortunate that they are moving away from it.

    I have been working at LexisNexis Legal & Professional full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good culture, love the people I work with. They have cut a lot of things, but do still order lunch for us and offer some quarterly incentives

    Cons

    Everything I said above; low morale, low pay, no job security. I have heard from senior managers that have left the company to get out, we will be taking all jobs to Philippines and North Carolina and the Dayton campus won’t be here in a few Pay goes down every year, senior management and management are all leaving the company. Sean Fitzpatrick makes budget cuts everywhere and outsourcing our jobs to the Philippines. They keep sending our people over to train them and I hear their campus is much nicer than ours. Half of my team is looking for a new job and it seems that my manager has one foot out the door.

    Pros

    Historically good pay and benefits, great people to work with, a culture that emphasizes performance and growth, relaxed working environment

    Cons

    Senior management ranks filled with like minded MBA mindsets who see the world through spreadsheets, quarterly numbers, and profit %. Suffer massive blindspot about value of people who do the work, believing most are fungible widgets that can be easily replaced by newer, cheaper people, both foreign and domestic. Communication is often tin-eared and tone deaf. Strategy of mimicking the competition is dreadfully reactionary; strategy of growing profit by repeatedly laying off workers is mindlessly conventional.

    National Clearinghouse for ridiculous management ideas About 5 years behind the curve for technology/management trends Dysfunctional senior management, which trickles down to the entire organization-- not just the CEO, but at the higher level at Reed Elsevier.

    I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional

    Pros

    Extremely knowledgeable people Very passionate, committed coworkers Decent benefits Decent work/life balance, though its up to you to monitor it - they'll take all they can get Local teams of business-side and development-side people work well together and respect each other

    Cons

    The local business and development organization is very competant, professional, and gets a lot done. In fact, the Litigation Solutions division is one of the few LexisNexis groups that has met it's sales goals and continued to grow. The big problem is when the corporate office decides to treat this division as just another regional office and makes cookie cutter decisions that have serious negative impacts. In addition, this division is a developer of PC and web-based software applications for the litigation discovery process, and senior management has no idea how to develop software applications. They are "leaders" who have a content background, not a software development background. As a result, they try to make changes to a system that works well, in order to make it fit in with the other divisions, because it's more work to have different processes and practices.

    "Going steadily downhill"

    Manager in Dayton, OH

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at LexisNexis Legal & Professional

    Pros

    Family/work life balance; some very dedicated employees, managers and even a few senior managers go the extra mile consistently to make sure a quality product is delivered. The time off and encouragement to be involved in the community in volunteer activities is rare among large corporations. There are also a few managers and senior managers who really care about providing the best quality product to the customer and the best workplace environment to employees.

    Cons

    These dedicated employees and managers are seldom recognized or rewarded and are becoming more and more rare as a brain drain is taking place. As expected, the reorganization under the new CEO is leading to a brain drain and people are leaving for various reasons. A large percentage of these are the ones who really gave their all to the company. All too often senior management throws almost insurmountable obstacles in the way by rushing a product to market before it is fully debugged or setting impossible financial goals. There is even less recognition of good performance than in the past and the focus senior management showed in the past on boosting employee morale - which common sense says will improve the bottom line - is just about gone. The show appears to be run by people with severe cases of ADHD - there is constant reorganization and the vision/direction of the business seems to change as fast as the weather.
