    I worked at LexisNexis full-time

    Pros

    Big company with many moving parts

    Cons

    Lack of leadership and development. Especially in Manager role. Expectations were to grow business, which was achieved at a 25% YoY rate. But this growth wasn't acknowledged by Senior management. HR department isn't accessible nor protective of management structure. Company very quick to look past achievements and disregard work product to protect lack of structure. Wouldn't recommend anyone work for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent in coaching and development. Hold yourselves accountable and don't be so quick to push responsibility to lower level management. Especially when it's your job to develop and coach accordingly.

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, incentives and overall work environment.

    Cons

    Changed several years back from a sales and solution driven organization to finance driven. More time spent on analyzing the numbers and not as much focus on what's driving the numbers.

    Advice to Management

    When acquisitions are made don't hand all the keys to the kingdom over to the acquired company. They may have their knowledge and expertise, but not the LN values and respect for the inherited LN employees.

    Pros

    No real job satisfaction or real achievement at this company. Benefits are mediocre. Some good employees, but management is a dígrace.

    Cons

    Sexism at its finest. Managers expect their egos stroked and favoritism all around. Managers are chosen because they are friends, not for real leadership. Horrible sales culture! Gotta be a good ole boy to get ahead. Very sexist and managers are preying on young pretty girls. No real growth potential. Beware!!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop being creepy and hire real managers to lead.
