    Pros

    Management understands the industry, which adds a sense of security.
    The company is growing.
    The work is fascinating.
    Management is transparent...they live their culture and values.
    Co-workers are awesome, good people doing important work.

    Cons

    Sometimes more guidance is needed...it's nice to have freedom and not be micromanaged but that has limits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being transparent and keep thinking of your employees first...it is appreciated.

    Pros

    You will definitely be challenged at LWG there is something new to do everyday. This requires you to be self motivated but the trade off is very little micro management. The people here are fantastic and incredibly hard working and service oriented both internally and externally. The company has amazing leadership and vision which flows from our leader Bob Wedoff who has really created an environment where we can all be successful.

    Flexible
    Leverages the latest in technology
    Safe positive work environment
    Hard working and dedicated team
    Very Strong Senior Leadership
    Great Benefits and Competitive Compensation
    Lots of opportunities to learn and develop your skills through formal and informal means.
    Stable and growing at a good pace
    Annual Celebration where all employees across the world meet and share in our successes from the previous year as well as brain storm for the future.
    Very transparent as far as performance and revenue
    Management is easy to talk to

    Cons

    None really it can get busy, but if you put in the hard work you are rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep implementing the strategy that has made LWG a success.

    I have been working at LWG Consulting full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    From a technical point of view there is really no end to the things we see and/or get to work on. We get to work on projects locally, but also all around the world. For an engineer it can be very satisfying to see so many pieces of equipment from such different industries.

    Cons

    Have to be ok with travel, sometimes on very short notice. Client's are the focus over everything so when the client's want something, you have to deliver. Even if that means extra work for you. Really the down side to any service focused company.

    I worked at LWG Consulting full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pros were supposed to be the promises they made prior to joining the company. They actually sought me out, courted me for about 2 months, hired me and took all my personal resources and contacts I spent 10 years developing. The overall I never gave me the job I was led to believe I would get ... and I got booted.

    Cons

    Not just getting let go ... that was not as bad as how much I was led down for their failure to live up to the claims they made and expectations they laid out..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't make promises you don't intend to keep and don't mislead ...because they make you liars and it will come back to haunt you 10 times over.

    I have been working at LWG Consulting full-time

    Pros

    I am constantly learning and being challenged.
    I get to see different and interesting things and location on a weekly basis.
    Pleasant work environment.
    No micromanaging.
    Get to make my own scheduling

    Cons

    There is traveling, sometimes on a last minute basis. However people help each other out if conflicts arise. Not a lot of higher management positions, although company is growing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the good work, and treat all equally.

    Pros

    You get to work and draw knowledge from a group of engineers with a diverse set of backgrounds and experiences. The culture is based on collaboration, excellence of employees and an open door policy with management. The work is exciting and challenging and you will never have the same work two days in a row!

    Cons

    You will need to travel; sometimes on short notice. Most travel is by car, but sometimes air travel is required. Focus, discipline and having a self starting attitude are required.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Great management , people in the right positions know what they are doing and how to be successful. Something different every day, you will not be bored working for LWG. Numerous office locations provide a range of possibilities for where you could work and also who you work with. Even with all the many locations LWG is one team continuing to grow throughout the world.

    Cons

    The only con I have come across is needing to be able to travel at the last minute. This is not a surprise however coming into the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Interesting company. I just joined January 1st- 12 internal people purchased it from a public company and took it private 10 years ago yet the financials are readily available to all to see and are distributed at the company meeting. Individual managers are highly focused and are not afraid of being second guessed which tells me they have effective management in place.

    Cons

    None that I have seen to date.Appears to be from all angles a well run company that maximizes the talent of their staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am frequently asked by management to opine on subjects and am greatful for the opportunity

    - Wide range of employee expertise to draw and learn from.
    - Smaller company so communication was very open.

    Cons
