I worked at The Roger Lee Group, LLCPros
The Roger Lee Group is a political consulting firm like non-other I have experienced because it is a place where new ideas and strategies are always encouraged and even the most junior employees are always welcome to participate in a wide variety of projects. As I got to know and work with the owner, Roger Lee, it was clear it is his vision that created the excellent work atmosphere.
In addition, while Mr. Lee can be almost shy in public, he is very outspoken in his professional life never fearing to push for trying something that might proof more effective than what is generally expected. He has developed new and more effective methods of touching voters and winning elections.
While many projects are assigned a manager, all the work produced always feels and usually is a group effort to some degree. Mr. Lee and the senior staff provide all employees a sense of pride in their interaction with clients, their work product and in the firm as a whole.
Anyone interested in political consulting be they entry level or at a very senior level would feel extremely satisfied and will quickly see that their direct involvement was allowed to make a true difference and is appreciated and desired. This respect for all staff members is clearly demonstrated when the bonuses are handed out.Cons
Before starting The Roger Lee Group, Mr. Lee founded and was president of a much larger firm, Strategy Source. He left his own company because he felt that with over 30 employees he was not able to be as hands on with the clients and still have room to experiment with new strategies.
While for the most part this makes it possible to produce every deliverable as a stellar representation of the firm’s quality.
However, Mr. Lee enjoys balancing 12 different clients or research projects at the same time.
Sometimes it seems as if Mr. Lee is unaware that his new firm is small by comparison to his previous firm and therefore all employees have learn that their priorities may change daily.
While this is always true in politics, with only 10% to 20% of the number of employees he used to have, it forces everyone to be able to multi-task regularly which I have noticed is very difficult for some.Advice to ManagementAdvice
As referenced above, the firm would benefit from placing a little more emphasis on staying focused. But overall, this is a very minor criticism.Recommends
