    Pros

    LHP cares about employees. There are many examples of things they have done for people that most employees don't know about. They are supportive of entrepreneurial ideas and look for ways to engage the employee base.

    Cons

    Because the resident engineers sit onsite at customer locations, it's hard for the employees to appreciate the work environment and culture of LHP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the focus on people as you grow.

    Pros

    Work offering breadth of experience
    Family Environment
    Entrepreneurial environment - supportive of employee ideas
    Excellent work/life balance (flex time)

    Cons

    Vindictive sales guys (whatever the title) who over promise and then mistreat engineers in retaliation
    Project management is very weak; leaving too great a burden on engineers to ensure the project is managed correctly
    Uses foreign labour who are limited in their employment opportunities because of visa restraints; American labour is too mobile for the load/treatment given out by management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let sales guys manage engineers

    Pros

    Free drinks and snacks. We get paid a medium wage. And some benefits.

    Cons

    Many experienced engineers are leaving due to very high work load and overlapping multiple projects. If very good work is done, they load you even more with more stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reorganization will not fix this problem.

    Pros

    There greatest asset is, for a contracting company they make you feel you are part of a family.The company is expanding its client base which has created more opportunities in the last year or so.They try everything within their reach to retain you once you are in irrespective of your project status with the client.They also have a lot of help with in engineering for college grads to quickly get on board.There are training programs available for professional hires as well.Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Just a week's worth of vacation and med insurance is slightly higher than other places.Pay can also be lower but it differs from person to person though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increasing benefits would go a long way in retaining people and building teams with experience to handle engineering challenges going forward.Expanding businesses in developing economies like China,India and brazil is also food for thought.

    Pros

    Good place for new grads to get experience.
    Pay is ok.
    Generally friendly office environment.

    Cons

    Inconsistent application of corporate culture to senior members of engineering staff whose behavior in some instances is grossly unethical (i.e. with respect to customer's IP). The company is trying to expand into Detroit and Chicago but their HR policies have not caught up to this plan; benefits (medical and dental) are very much Indiana centric. Almost everything is out of network in Detroit and not much is in network in Chicago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Apply culture statement consistently.

    Pros

    There are really some nice people in the company, making you feel warm. Since the company is still growing, there are some good opportunities to help people to grow. CEO and presidents are nice. Good for international students, since the company help employee to apply F1 visa, then green card.

    Cons

    Salary is below average, vacation time only one week per year in the beginning, after two year, increased to 7 days...No bonus, no relocation assistance. Feeling like being dragging around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruiting department manager is busy in getting more candidates, and neglects current employees.
