    I worked at LexisNexis part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    extra training, experience training others, become an expert with legal databases, and marketing experience

    Cons

    As a student employee they are not allowed to be used as a professional reference.

    Advice to Management

    Many students need more than just professors to list professional references, the senior account executive that worked with these students should be allowed to be listed as a professional reference.

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

    Pros

    Pay is decent.
    Not much work pressure.
    You can take tasks that you can do.
    Work from home.
    Once in 2-3 months team outing/sponsored Lunch
    Office gym

    Cons

    They gave me the choice to select the team and a specific area(Technology). But finally, they put me on a team wherever they feel like.
    In regard to the above point. I have spoken to my current colleagues, they are not interested in the work they do. I have done similar work in my college. I don't see why they are not putting people in the areas where we are strong and comfortable.

    The play area is always closed due to meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Kindly put people according to their areas of interest. That will be more productive to the company.
    Play area should be shifted to a better room. As it is always closed whenever there is a meeting in the Centennial Hall.

    Pros

    Great people, good work environment, solid benefits. Their facilities are above average and technical support is typical for the industry.

    I have been working at LexisNexis full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very few to report these days

    Cons

    Spent the last 8 years waiting for the layoff call. It used to happen two times a year and now it's very quarter and sometimes even more often. Boosting profits by cutting talent is manufactured growth and a company can only do that so long before the bottom falls out. This company is almost there after 10-steady years of cutting. Shipping jobs to Manilla, cutting tenured and experienced staff and downgrading senior level positions to entry level. Incoming salary levels have been slashed significantly, making it difficult to recruit qualified talent in multiple disciplines across the company. The quality of work and the ability to meet customer expectations are suffering. The culture is dying. There is no room for growth and everyone is doing several jobs. Stay away

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting all the institutional knowledge out of the company. Get creative about how to increase profits without sacrificing loyalty and critical thinking in the organization.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, ability to work from home; good benefits package

    Cons

    No job stability, too many reorganizations. During the course of one year I reported to three different managers.

    Advice to Management

    Communications of reorgs and downsizing needs to be better. All to often, colleages only find out that someone is gone when the emails bounce back or they heard whispers and rumors. This does not help morale. Also, constant reorganizations makes it look like management does not really know what they are doing
