    Small enough to care, big enough to help

    Tier II Technical Support (Current Employee) Bethesda, MD

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

    ConsMicro 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 Senior ManagementSwitch 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Shining Star in a sea of undesirable tech firms!

    Support (Current Employee) Rockville, MD

    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 Senior ManagementOverall, 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good, and getting better

    Systems Analyst (Current Employee) Bethesda, MD

    ProsLCG 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.

    ConsAs 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 Senior ManagementBe 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.

    LCG Systems- HQ and client site review

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Rockville, MD

    ProsNice 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.

    ConsCorporate 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 Senior ManagementDeliver 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not bad

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Rockville, MD

    ProsGood professional development of career, always willing to accommodate for new certifications and training where possible and budget not withstanding.

    Consno real growth opportunity. company growing, but you're either a manager of sorts or "in the field", so to speak.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep employees informed of ways to advance their career. Maybe a mentor/apprentice type role where we could find out how the management team works.

    Many opportunities and rewards for hard working, intelligent employees.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros-Management
    -Benefits
    -Innovation
    LCG Systems is continuously working to improve its standing as a preferred employer in the federal government space. The benefits package, management communication and opportunity to be involved in innovative technologies is excellent.

    ConsLCG Systems promotes training and certification so well that many of its employees move into the federal government space. This doesn't always leave the coverage that it should to focus and fulfill the company mission.

    Fantastic

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsOpen collaborative enviroment where employees are valued! The majority of employees are very committeed to seeing the company succeed and therefore, there is a true team culture.

    ConsStill growing and with that comes growing pains! Things at time can seem a little unstructured but with time this should iron itseld out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep aiming big but be mindful of how thin people are spread. Dont forget that it's not always about revenue and that investment in your employees, even at the expense of the bottom line, in the long run will always be fruitful!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
