    Pros

    The pay is very fair for work required. It is a friendly company both on the corporate level and local level. Benefits are offered to employees very quickly upon hire. They are always looking for ways to improve practices.

    Cons

    Health benefits are expensive and don't cover as much as I think they should. Corporate launches new initiatives without one part of the company talking to another.

  2. This is a great company to work for.

    Pros

    The managers are thorough and disciplined, but nice most of the time. The pay is right where it should be for my job, and my coworkers are all great to work with.

    Cons

    There are opportunities to move up, but I haven't seen them yet. Sometimes the managers can be a bit hard to please, but they are still patient most of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more patient with your new employees. Some learners are faster or slower than others, so you can't expect everyone to get it right away. Also, at times you say one thing but do another, or baby your employees.

    Pros

    Great company the best and the largest OOH company in North America. Great Benefits great stock options.

    Cons

    Each office is run independently and I was bullied and sexually harassed for 5 years. I would have filed an anonymous complaint but when one did a vicious employee meeting was called and when folks left and a negative exit interviews were given regarding the GM but no recourse nothing was done. They just called GM asked if they did the things ex employee accused them of they just said no I would never and it was swept out to sea. Sad that such a great organization has weak links at the local levels and they do nothing about it. I planned to retire from Lamar but unfortunately the stress and ridicule and unfair treatment by the GM made it impossible. Lamar needs to pay attention to markets that are not growing and have abundant turn over maybe your appointed GM are making it impossible for people to do their jobs. Remember you are only as strong as your weakest link and you have a few of them at GM / VP levels that need to be disposed of like trash.

    Advice to Management

    evaqluate your GM's every year based on growth budgets turnovers and when employees leave maybe believe that just once they may be forthcoming of a bad apple at upper management level.

    Pros

    The companies values are great. The work-life balance is awesome. Very little micromanaging.

    Cons

    Each office runs as a separate entity, so one market might be great to work in, but another may not. It is hit or miss in different regions.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more commissions.

    Pros

    The dress code is very casual and the work environment is very friendly and relaxed. The corporate office is very modern and unique. I've received comments that it resembles something out of a Google office. There's a full kitchen that would allow you to cook just about anything.

    Cons

    Compensation is typically on the lower side.

    Advice to Management

    Place more emphasis on retaining top talent.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Stock can be purchased at a discounted rate. In the right departments there is a good community feeling.

    Cons

    Expected to work lots of overtime with no pay, no comp time, and no acknowledgement for having done so. Travel at a moments notice to anywhere the company decides is "an emergency" and for unknown durations.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the feedback of employees who are actually in the field. Stop making poor decisions based on ignorant ideas.
