    Proceed with caution

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsOffice staff is friendly and supportive with a desire to succeed.
    Benefits are comparable to the IT staffing industry.
    Consulting practice leaders are experienced with a depth in solution development.
    Field consultants work with good companies and are supported with a consultant support resource.

    ConsTurnover is very high with most of the practice leads, recruiting and sales resources on board for less than a year. Attracting talent, retention and longevity are poor.
    Company is in a constant state of transition and has been for years, trying to migrate from an IT staffing firm to an IT solutions firm without a clear strategy supported by the owners.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop a clear strategy for the migration from staffing to solutions that the ownership can support. Manage the transition plan with a long-term perspective.

    Started Off Well, But Company Needs Some Work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    Pros--Friendly atmosphere in office
    --Good communication among peers
    --Moderately good benefits package
    --Enjoyable team building activities

    I was really excited to join the LG team and found the staff to be wonderful when I began my job: friendly atmosphere, promise of career growth, modest benefits that I was told would increase as LG grew.

    Cons--Lack of communication from executives
    --Not much in-office training
    --Management is not straightforward in sharing company information with employees that we need to do our jobs.

    Alot of the promises made at the beginning of my hire did not happen. No training, benefits have not improved, and there has not been opportunity to advance much. Management has not been clear about recent company activities involving a harassment complaint filed with the equal opportunity commission, which has left me having to answer questions from outside agents that I don't feel I am qualified to answer without more information from the exec team. General feeling of secrecy from management team that is not appreciated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your staff in the loop about what is going on between the company and the community and your former employees so that we can do our jobs more effectively.

    Very good firm. Owners are honest, hardworking and have all the right intentions

    Recruiter (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsIt's a no bs place to work. straight, open communication. recruiting is not for everyone. it's hard work and you have to be smart and tenacious. LG gives you every chance to make as much money as you want. finally have a good model in place and a clear plan moving forward. Great guys who own the firm who actually generate a substantial amount of revenue vs. sitting in an office giving orders.

    ConsThey've hired terrible people in the past that shouldn't be in this industry in the first place. Thank god all those people are gone. I'm not surprised by some of the comments because it's by former employees who were completely dishonest, horrible employees, or were scheming against management to rip them off and take trade secrets with them.

    Management's plan has been seriously faulted in the past trying to make the leap from staff-aug to pure professional services and hired a guy who was an absolute bust. Came in talking big game but in the end it was all talk and zero production.

    Owners are bag carrying, revenue generating guys so you don't get as much hands on attention, but they've added some additional staff to help out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHopefully your worst hires are in the past. I almost left because of some of these folks. Keep on point and make the slow transition to professional services. You know every executive in town.

    Good and Bad

    Technical Recruiter (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    Pros-Good co-workers and environment at the time (most no longer there though)
    -Used to be able to make good money, though this apparently has changed
    -They used to have exceptional recruiters

    Cons-Management refers to employees as chess pieces on a chess board, and treat people poorly when they leave

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo a better job of treating people well when they leave. Put some processes or training in place (this was non-existant)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Do your homework about the company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsAlot of the people within this company are great and have strong backgrounds.
    They cover all their employees benefits at no cost to the employee.
    Compensation is not bad (Some have it much better than others in the same role).

    ConsYou are not looked at as a valuable asset to the organization and instead a dollar sign.
    Senior management is dishonest, untrustworthy and does not know the meaning of the word "intregrity".
    Even if you leave the company on good terms they still try to ruin your name.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhy do you think 99% of all ex-LG Consulting employees have bad things to say about you? Could they all be wrong? People do not leave amazing jobs with bosses that truly value them...they leave when they feel the bosses wouldnt piss on them if they were on fire (which is why I and many others have left). Your company could be great if you listened and took care of your bottom line

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
