Pros

For someone who is passionate, hard-working and driven, Langan is a great place for professional and personal growth and reward. It's a very special place with a great culture and dedicated staff.

Cons

Langan tends to attract very self-motivated individuals who often struggle with work-life balance as a result of their own commitment and drive. Senior management recognizes the importance of work-life balance and continually works to improve the work environment. Sweat shop?...Not even close. Langan employees are passionate about their work and take it very seriously. It's a great place to work!

Advice to Management

Continue to build-on the strong culture to adapt to the younger generation (the new and future work force).

    Pros

    Pros --
    There are plenty of opportunities to learn at Langan and you have an opportunity to interact with some very sharp colleagues. Langan also seems stays on the cutting edge when it comes to technology.

    Cons

    Cons -- Langan has a culture of putting profits above all else and not adhering to their core values of integrity and teamwork. Due to the management structure, with each "Stockholder Group" being its own profit-center, the culture can be described as "Every Man for himself". Senior Management encourages this shark-like behavior by "putting some bait and the water and seeing who gets it." This discourages teamwork and sharing.

    There is absolutely no work-life balance at Langan, at least at the levels below Stockholder. Employees are expected to complete nearly all non-billable work on their own time (including training, proposal writing, networking events, and administrative tasks such as timesheets, and any over-budget items), which ends up equating to 65-70 hour work weeks as de rigueur.

    Langan has shown that that they are not loyal to their staff -- having 3 or 4 rounds of large layoffs in the last 5 years. However, Senior Management continued to be employed. This has led to an inverted pyramid structure, severely limiting growth opportunities for staff and middle-management.

    Advice to Management

    It is obvious that Management has seen the negative reviews on Glassdoor and has undertaken an initiative to write glowing reviews and they have instructed current employees to do the same (note many of the positive reviews are all from a one-week window).

    My advice to Management, is to put yourself in the shoes of your staff, and treat them they way you would want to be treated.
