    I worked at LaFrance full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Casual dress, nice work environment, established policies, family owned, managed with the long term in mind, opportunities to grow and develop if you want them and work hard.

    Cons

    Lots of travel which may or may not be a good thing, hard to break through to an upper management position due to flat organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let slackers or poor performers stay. It's ok to fire someone for poor performance & who's bringing down moral

    A nice laidback place to work, as long as you don't mind the below average pay.

    I have been working at LaFrance

    Pros

    Its a very laid back work environment. They generally accept projects to be completed whenever they are completed, with no real deadlines breathing down your neck. The company has a diverse group of employees, with the majority of entry level positions filled by recent college graduates. Somewhat flexible hours, it is not unusual for the CEO to call a half day when there is a special event going on on that day i.e. (major sports team playing during work hours).

    Cons

    Some of the managers hired are either very anal with their employees or are incompetent at their job.The pay is below average in all positions across the board.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a hard look at the under performing employees and managers, and replace them with someone that actually takes pride in their work.
