    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    -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.

    Cons

    LCG 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.

    Pros

    Open 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.

    Cons

    Still 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep 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!

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Great people and a supportive work environment

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    - Great people who are competent, friendly and enthusiastic
    - A fun place to work if in the right team
    - Encourages people to take charge of their own careers and strives to provide opportunities in employees' areas of interest
    - HR is actually pleasant to work with and is quite efficient

    Cons

    - Not a place for big company types who crave for structure, direction and clear career paths.
    - Based on what team you are assigned to, the experience can vary significantly. No "LCG way" of doing things; everything depends on your team and the client.
    - Lack of brand recognition in the marketplace. The time spent doing poor quality work at a big firm might look better on your resume than doing great work here. LCG needs to compensate this by improving the brand or offering higher salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on improving the company's brand - it will help in attracting and retaining good talent in addition to growing the business. The current updates on business results are great, but considering most of the employees are technology professionals and the business is technology services, it would be great if a coherent technology strategy and road-map are thought through and provided.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    LCG Systems- HQ and client site review

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Rockville, MD
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Rockville, MD

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
