    I have been working at LSBF full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work at LSBF is not for the faint-hearted, but it can definitely be a rewarding experience. To me, it has been a huge learning curve and I had the opportunity of doing things that I never thought I would do. Got involved in some really good and high profile projects during the 2,5 years that I've been here.

    Cons

    I think the senior management could be a little bit clearer about their overall group strategy, so everyone would be on the same page about the company's goals, culture and objectives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up! Invest in your staff and bring them to the decision making process of your business. Maybe general assemblies with every single employee would be a good opportunity to motivate and put everyone on the same page.

    Lack of management or order, basically it's chaos, disorganised HR, who used to accidentally send wrong emails to me, managent don't seem to invest much back but like to wine and dine, all ran by one family, all management seem to be related

    Just don't

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

    Pros

    Excellent middle level and junior team, Relaxed environment, company HAD loads of potential and Interaction with the senior management was regular.
    Can get the spark back if they value the staff more as they used to year ago.
    Fun Staff and loads of parties..

    Cons

    Senior Management needs to look under the carpet and start controlling overall operations more aggressively.
    Salary could be a constraint for some worthy candidates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to decentralize the Authority and should hold people accountability for their actions rather than keeping the lobby happy.
