    Pros

    Executives and Corporate Staff are committed to employees, and employees are committed to the company in return. Excellent benefits. Pay is reviewed annually for performance and benchmarking. Employees are often promoted within.

    Cons

    Extended work hours are sometimes expected depending on projects and workload.

    Advice to Management

    Management should continue to consider employees when making decisions.

    Pros

    Great benefits package, and various training programs offered. A huge plus was the ability to work remotely.

    Cons

    Due to being a contractor working at client site, there wasn't much communication between managers and employees of LCG.

    Advice to Management

    I advise management to visit client sites more often, to close the communication gap, as this can lead to loss of contracts.

    Pros

    Small family mentality. Often have happy hours company wide where you can meet the top players or fellow new comers.

    Cons

    Micro management is present with a lot of their teams from what i am understanding. I know we have to account personally for every hour we work

    Advice to Management

    Switch to fringe benefits as not all employees want the benefits you force on to us. I would much rather have the mandatory 3.25 an hour the govn't requires to a 401k as many of the bigger contractors do.

    Pros

    -Management open to working with you to make sure you build the future you want -I really feel like LCG is making a big effort to make sure I am taken care -Management and HR go the extra mile to make you feel like they want you to stay at LCG and grow -Free training and certs! -Management will sit with you and talk about your future/growth opportunities. I dont feel like Im stuck in the same job forever. -Planned activities and outings -Great benefits! -Very generous company

    Cons

    -Some of the small client sites (with 3 or less employee's) sometimes seem forgotten. Just as perks are at bigger client sites (water coolers, free refreshments, kitchens, microwaves, refrigerators) they should also be made available for employee's at smaller sites -More opportunities outside the Rockville area - No Employee purchase program

    Advice to Management

    Overall, LCG is an excellent company that really works hard to make sure their employees are happy. Keep working at making sure the connections stays strong between corporate and your employee's.

    Pros

    LCG suffered some peculiar and arguably unethical management problems years ago but those problems have been resolved, the problem personnel have been dismissed and the climate has improved towards a focus on doing good work for our customers. Business development has demonstrated an increasingly strong capability of landing contracts and keeping the company fiscally healthy. economic woes were turned around in record time in an impressive display of financial mitigation. LCG appears to promote from within almost exclusively. This opportunity for advancement is one of its greatest strengths and undersold by management. Fortunately, the policy seems to be working fine as far as avoiding the "Peter Principle" as well.

    Cons

    As a small company, LCG is not in a position to provide a large number of fancy perks. I do have concerns LCG may suffer if we get an economic recovery and quality personnel get poached.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful of compensation packages in the event of an economic recovery. Severe brain drain is a true threat to the continued success of the company. Don't give up on the corporate event planning. The gestures were welcome despite sparse participation. HR should not feel demoralized when some events aren't as popular as hoped. This is an early stage. Perhaps monthly is too ambitious. Quarterly and closer to work locations and starting times right after work might help participation rates.

    Pros

    Nice people, office, and if you are at the HQ bldg- you get free fruit, drinks, and other perks. The building is secure which is a plus if you work later hours.

    Cons

    Corporate culture hard to break into the clique. Lack of dedicated, qualified tester for their in-house software development efforts lead me to believe that the client is not getting top quality products. Even though client sites are only a few miles from the HQ, the little perks are not available such as fruit, drinks, etc. --sort of makes you feel you aren't really part of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Deliver some of your HQ perks to workers forced to be at client sites, often a fruit basket and some free soft drinks and a visit by management once in a while would go a long way towards making sure everyone feels they are part of the company.
