OK place to work

I worked at LandAmerica Financial Group

ProsGood benefits package compared to its competitors

ConsManagement was poorly prepared for the down turn in the real estate market

Advice to Senior ManagementNew clients/orders are not the only part of the business; you must also take care of problems such as claims are the level at which they are caused.

Not a bad place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Irvine, CA

I have been working at LandAmerica Financial Group

ProsThe best reasons to work for LandAmerica are they are not too large of a company where politics and procedures constantly get in the way, but they are large enough to offer plenty of room for advancement. They are very willing to let you explore different career paths within the company. They are very open to ideas and will give you the resources necessary to pursue those ideas. They seem to be very flexible with time off for personal reasons and holidays. The benefits package is pretty good with a decent 401K and health insurance is top notch. All-in-all they are a good company to work for.

ConsNot really their fault, but because of the current housing market there have been a lot of layoffs. Although I have noticed they will try to move a good employee to another position if their current position has been eliminated.

Advice to Senior ManagementI cannot really think of anything I would suggest

Build Great Lives is the motto, but please live by it.

Business Process Implementer (Project Manager) (Former Employee)

ProsIn the industry, they are probably the company that will lay you off last, meaning holding on to there staff longer.

ConsDon't expect Tenure or Experience to be part of the decision when it is time to let people go. It seems like the corporate office picks names from a hat and that is who goes.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe work and dedication from the heart can come from the experienced and highest tenure employees. Even though these may be the higher paid, these are the ones willing to go out of their way to do the job. Think that employees that came from an acquired company, have their roots still with the company.

RIP

ProsI found it was a good place to work...sorry to see it end. The industry had been on hard times but LA did many things wrong.

Cons$$$$$$$$$$$ wasn't competitve. Average at best, especially for dedicated achievers. Our managemnet was nice and good people to work with bu Senior management hadn't a clue about day to day.

Advice to Senior Managementbetter luck next time, listen to your staff, don't waste money during hard times.
