    I worked at LRA Worldwide

    Pros

    - quiet and calm work environment.
    - great management.

    Cons

    - quick turnover for consultants.
    - clients that do not renew contracts and therefore lack of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do not have any advice or feedback for the management team at LRA. I was very happy with the management team.

    Very unique opportunity. Company culture could use some attention.

    I worked at LRA Worldwide full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Extensive travel to unique areas.
    -Building up your personal reward accounts, and taking advantage of road warrior perks.
    -Closeness of consultants.
    -Seeing the world.

    Cons

    -Health benefits.
    -Severely underpaid for amount of time and work put into accounts.
    -Training greatly varies depending on what account(s) you consult or work for.
    -Management takes advantage of nice people, often saying one thing and doing another.
    -Company changes and updates are made unilaterally. No consultant opinion or concern is taken into account.
    -Very clique-esque company, where favorites are obviously seen amongst other associates.
    -Consultants/Associates NEVER come first. The company is completely client-driven. The company says they are the ones that create change and make things better in the industry. When, in actuality they do not offer advice to companies because they will not take it. The client(s) gives the company a list of items they want to be inspected or audited, and LRA says "how high?" when the client says "jump!".
    -Very small amount of creativity is allowed by associates. Very strict client guidelines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making drastic changes to policies without consultant input. Too many changes were made in the last two years that greatly benefited the office staff, and completely disregarded the consultants; i.e. Time and Expense reporting.

    Don't applaud your company for giving a great work/life balance, when most of the consultant's free time is flying, writing reports, and/or submitting time and expense (which can take you up to three hours depending on how many accounts you work on).

    For those at the top, making decisions, can you actually make a decision? Too many times one thing was said in a meeting or e-mail. Then, as the assignment was being completed, they would change their mind, or make last-minute changes (i.e. forcing a consultant to a country, and then being lambasted by not allowing them to meet online via Skype). A higher-up once said, "Why did you listen to me?" BECAUSE YOU'RE EVERYONE'S BOSS!

    Be honest. Don't beat around the bush hoping a consultant will complete a task by offering perks, and then not delivering on them.

    HR is too "comfy" with Management and Ownership, not really allowing a fair environment.

    I have been working at LRA Worldwide full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    got to travel all over the country to some amazing desitanations

    Cons

    only home 4days/month, only would direct deposit pay check, would not direct deposit expense checks - made it hard to stay afloat while traveling around. Pay was mediocre - for the work we did and amount of travel, we should've been paid much more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    upgrade pay scale and ability to direct deposit ALL checks. provide company credit card.

    I have been working at LRA Worldwide

    Pros

    Great Clients
    A variety of job experience - much more than simply working in a hotel
    Always sensitive to our personal needs
    The QA department has a lot of opportunities
    Research and Consulting Practices make it interesting to explore industries beyond hotels

    Cons

    For a small company they look after us well but it can be difficult at times when compared to benefits of larger companies.
