I worked at LMI full-time

Pros

Folks at LMI have a true belief in what they're doing. LMI is completely dedicated to government consulting. The amount of experience the average LMI employee has is amazing. Nearly anyone could be considered a SME. Employees are treated well and pay is good.

Cons

I was disappointed at the inability to move laterally between groups. LMI, by its name, tends to focus on supply chain/logistics problems. But the supply chain is a broad concept. The organization is divided into many different groups, many of which focus on a different area of the supply chain. I did not observe much transition between groups, allowing people a broader experience in the supply chain.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

With government sequestration likely to highly effect organizations that do most or all of their business with government organization, it is high time that LMI make a concerted effort to develop a competency, even if just a small one to start, in consulting with private or quasi-public organizations. It would be extremely unfair to the common LMI consultant to see their livelihood disappear solely because LMI is too proud to "stoop" to the level of consulting for private industry.

    Pros

    They really work at protecting the culture at LMI by hiring nice people. Plus they only go after consulting work that we can do well. Other firms go after anything and send people without the right experience to do the work. They don't do that at LMI. High quality work is a badge of honor here.

    Cons

    Traffic around Tyson's & no Metro shuttle

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Protect the culture of LMI. It's a special place.
    Especially compared to the other consulting firms.

    Pros

    Strong community reputation w. clients. Great staff and employees that genuinely care about what they are doing and each other. Leadership promotes professional and personal growth at all levels. Strong support for work-life family balance. Lots of field expertise, intelligent employees, and STRONG talent - great project opportunities to apply skills. Staff is not rude, cut-throat, divisive - there is never an "every man for himself" mentality here. Very academic and collegial environment. Competition is a standard you place against yourself to succeed - not others.

    Cons

    Salary range is lower in comparison to what you would make at other management consulting firms for level of work and there is little room to grow into management positions without bringing new business in. Can be difficult to network in other parts of the company if you work at an off-site client location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mandate days for off-site employees to rotate in and out of Tysons Corner location so that they stay integrated with the core network. Also, identify opportunities to strengthen mid-level management opportunities.
