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

    Pros

    It'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.

    Cons

    They'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 ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully 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.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Alot 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).

    Cons

    You 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 ManagementAdvice

    Why 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

    Pros

    The people, location, and earnings potential is limitless

    Cons

    Disorganized, no training, lack of leadership of the recruiting team. Traffic in the area is terrible. If you don't live in the right spot and plan your commute correctly, you can lose 1-2 hours a day just in travel. The biggest problem is that it's really easy to forget about your social life. Some days you get so into your job you lose track of the time and the whole day passes you by. Occasionally there's pressure to get something accomplished quickly and you may find yourself working longer hours than you want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it a more open environment

    Pros

    - Great compensation
    - Great work environment (good balance between having fun and working hard)
    - Solid leadership team
    - Flexible schedule
    - Fun team to work with

    Cons

    - Lack of training (however management is working on this and putting in place the appropriate training necessary to ensure we all are experts in what we do)
    - Lack of defined individual goals (would like to work with my manager to set personal goals whether it be on a quarterly, semi or annual basis)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you all are doing a great job and are heading in the right direction as far as making the appropriate improvements in the areas needed.
