    Pros

    Stability, Professionalism, Benefits, People. LFG is a good company and provides a stepping stone to advance your career path whether you choose to stay with the company or move on.

    Cons

    Career path, politics, bureaucracy, change management. As with any company that has been in business for a very long time (100 yrs), there are some ingrained cultural attributes that may not serve the best interest of today's professionals. Too many of the "old guard" are in management positions and will not easily adapt to the demands of today's workforce or customers.

    Advice to Management

    Promote the right talent and instill a culture of accountability in practice. Recognize and promote those who show initiative, achieve results and great potential without having to be sponsored by management in a lengthy bureaucratic process.

They offer a diverse benefits package, the Company emphasizes the importance of employees owning their careers and initiating interactions with mamagement for growth opportunities and continuous professional development, additionally, the Company actively supports the communities of its Key City locatons and encourages its employees to engage in participating and supporting their communities.

    Cons

    Most jobs are location specific.
