Big, slow, comfortable, many benefits but unexciting

Pros

Flexible hours, 9/80 work schedule. Offered pension (N/A now). Coworkers were mostly smart and nice. Interesting projects from big picture perspective. Bicycles for use on campus. 401k and charitable donation matching. Good retention bonus offered for staying on until the end of a project. Occasional BBQ parties, and holiday banquet. Leadership training program and tuition reimbursement. Maybe a good deal when you have a family and work is just a paycheck.

Cons

Coming out of college, there weren't many coworkers my age, and most who were talked about leaving. Work never really felt fun. The pace felt slow, with a lot of processes. Projects take years to complete. Few fun perks. Possibly below-average salary. Drab old office buildings.

    Pros

    9/80 work week is good for work life balance. Good Training if your manager allows you to attend. Large enough comapny if you could find a position to transfer.

    Cons

    The Marietta site is completely different from the other locations. It's less about what you know rather than who you know. If your'e from the South you should be fine.

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, no suits and people are nice and interested in there work true 40 hour work week, no insane over time 9/80 work schedule gives you a three day weekend every other weekend very flexible with working hours and vacation, "flex time" allows you to build up additional time off Good salary, not the best for the Bay Area but considering the relaxed work environment they offer good compensation. Internal transfers offer access to a wide variety of industries and skill building opportunities.

    Cons

    While the LM name recognition can help when looking for work this is not a great place for young people to start a career. The company is over managed and seems more interested in chasing the latest ISO / Jack Welch certification than looking at its own history or asking its own employees about what works. There is too much hierarchy and over specialization, that said it's a big company and you can transfer internally to gain a variety of experience. Heading up the management ladder internally though probably won't work, one of my best qualified friend who worked there at the same time as mean and was doing his best was basically told to stop working so hard b/c he was making people look bad.
