    Pros

    It was fun and I made a lot of friends. Very flexible schedule, which was great for my family.

    Cons

    There doesn't seem to be any structure. People are let go way too frequently without giving warning. Everything is considered a lay off and some people are given no notice of their lay off and walked out the door and some are given a 2 week warning that it's coming. It's all in who you know and who likes you...that determines what you're working on and if you move up the ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk about things outside of closed doors, get to know your employees as people, provide some structure to follow so employees aren't always left guessing.

    Pros

    The people are a lot of fun to interact with and were all very creative.

    Cons

    Lack of direction and structure. Also they will let you go without notice at any time. Also if you make one mistake that is it you are done.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorites and try to become more structured.

    Pros

    Positive work environment, great leadership, freedom to work how you work best (work from home, work from Starbucks, just do good work!). The company culture is hardworking yet relaxed in the office. There is a great "agency" feel to working at LC. You work with extremely talented and dedicated people who are eager to teach and encourage people who are new to the advertising world.

    Cons

    Honestly, there aren't many cons to working at Laughlin Constable. The one thing that surprised me was no corporate gym membership for employees. Especially since there are so many great gyms downtown and they are committed to employee wellness in the office. However, this is a very small con. Overall, there is little to complain about working at LC!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing! They do a great job of making new employees feel welcome. I have never been afraid to approach anyone in the company and ask questions. The learning culture at LC is great, and I hope it continues!

    Pros

    Everyone understands when you have a sick child and have to work from home.
    Staff is positive and outgoing.
    At previous employers I felt like I was always the one going above and beyond and others had poor work ethics. At Laughlin everyone has a great work ethic and it is an infectious place to be!

    Cons

    When there is no work from clients, cuts can be made. This can be avoided by working hard, being positive and getting involved in many things at Laughlin. The more involved you are with projects the more fun it is anyway!

    Pros

    LC is one of the best places I have ever worked. The flexible scheduling and the family friendly schedule is awesome. Also love early dismissal and the summer hours. LC does a lot for their employees including summer parties and holiday parties. Co-workers are friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Wish they had a parking lot, but that's downtown for you.

    Keep it up!

    A great work/family balance that I haven't had anywhere else

    Pros

    The reason I wanted to work here is because of the family-friendliness. I love that I can have a career and a family and never feel like one outweighs the other. Plus I have a family-friendly schedule, so I can stay home one day/week with my family.

    I've always felt recognized for what I do to help the business and feel my coworkers are more positive and helpful than other places that I've worked.

    Great hours and I love the summer hours and early dismissal days.

    I've never had the 'yuck' feeling of coming to work in the morning. I enjoy what I do, where I am and who I'm with.

    Cons

    Things change quickly in this industry, so sometimes the work that I do can becomes obsolete quickly. For instance, there could be a rush to start and complete a project. Within 2 days the client changes their mind and now 2 days of work doesn't matter anymore.

    It would be nice if the company would either pay for parking or gym memberships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To help us all feel part of Laughlin Constable, be sure to keep the communication open with all of the employees.
