I worked at LA Inc.
Pros – 'Los Angeles' itself is a powerful brand. If you work for a company which claims to be the 'brand ambassador' or marketing partner for the city, you will automatically gain lot of credibility.
Cons – Lack of business focus and vision
A standard policy of 'No Decision is the Best Decision'.
Advice to Senior Management – People management is a sensitive area, which needs lot of commitment from the leadership.
My advice to LA INC leadership team is that prior to assigning people management responsibility to any individual, make sure that they are qualified and 'professionally' secured and 'successful 'people. No company is bad and no employee leaves the company. We simply leave the poor managers!
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at LA Inc. full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – Exposure to a variety of people in a number of different industries.
Ample networking opportunities.
Perks particular to the travel industry.
Opportunity to travel.
Cons – Very disorganized and unfocused.
Favoritism. Likeable and friend does not always translate into capable.
Nonsensical job titles that have no real equivalent outside LA Inc.
Indecisive department heads that cause longer working hours for staff in order to meet the deadlines set by those same indecisive department heads.
Advice to Senior Management – Decide on a plan of action and stick to it.
Open your minds to new ideas.
Listen to the members.
Ensure managers are really qualified and can handle their positions BEFORE they are promoted.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
