    I worked at LexisNexis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People were great. Staff great!They let you set your own hours within 4 hour period, as long as your end time is by 6:30 pm to 7:00 pm

    Cons

    Job is only temporary, BARELY 6 MONTHS. Were one will not be able to apply for unemployment. Only thing though, if one applied for an job opening, the company will not inform you if they would not accept you.

    I worked at LexisNexis full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work from home! The company sets you up with a computer, phone, hotspot, printer and ipad. It's easy to move around to other positions within the parent company, Reed Elsevier.

    Cons

    constant layoffs, twice a year, if not more these days. It makes for an extremely demoralizing and anxiety ridden work day. You're constantly looking over your shoulder and waiting for "the call" from HR to say your position has been eliminated. Employees would move across the country for consultant roles only to find out, three months later, that their positions are eliminated. The executives will say "we value our people" on Monday and then on Friday, eliminate 60 positions.

    Advice to Management

    Too many managers and VPs. One segment can easily have 3 VPs and 5 Regional Sales Managers overseeing 30 direct reports. Get it together and stop eliminating support people. Reps can't do their jobs if they spend the entire work day creating IDs (true story!) and correcting invoices (another true story).

    I worked at LexisNexis full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large company with opportunities to move around. Strong benefits with good pay. Work life balance is excellent.

    Cons

    Sales goals tend to be nearly impossible to reach. Management seems to focus on statistics more than results. Phone stats are more important than hitting your goal. They take micro managing to a new level.

    Advice to Management

    Let people sell without all the stress that's added with requirements to meet certain phone stat measurements. More people does not translate to more sales. Treat your people like adults and you will keep the adults. Or, just keep replacing the adults with the inexperienced kids right out of college. Easy way to save money but hard to replace the results.

    I have been working at LexisNexis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    work at home but have linx so you will have to stay connect with your manager when working at home. All management usually checkout by 5:00 pm.

    Cons

    micro-managers who are always checking in with each sales person.

    Advice to Management

    Less micro management will get more productivity out of employees.

    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.
