    I worked at Leadership Directories, Inc. full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Set work hours... That's about it.

    Cons

    There were too many challenges to name. Managment thinks that it is acceptable to publicly demean employees. Swearing at employees in company wide emails is ok?

    Passive aggressive comments are made on a daily basis.

    People constantly compared working at LDI to being stuck on a sinking ship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are people in upper management that need to go. There is no way around it.

    Pros

    Outside of being in a trendy neighborhood close to multiple train lines and buses, I cant think any (NYC)

    Cons

    They were happy to welcome me there, but after the second day, things got really unprofessional, and messy really quick. Upper management really don't care for the well being of the people who they hire and HR is very unethical. They are setting themselves up for a lawsuit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GROW A HEART!

    I worked at Leadership Directories, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Limited hours, office is near major transportation, and most workers have 2 monitors. Extremely lax work at home policy for some workers.

    Cons

    Inept department heads, low pay, no chance for advancement, no sense of community, cutting corners in every way possible. Friends of senior management can do whatever they want, while everyone else gets excluded, ignored, and ridiculed. There is no HR department and no one to talk to. Business strategy depends on whims of those too ignorant and short sighted to make the right calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to care about other people

    I have been working at Leadership Directories, Inc.

    Pros

    It's a small company that makes communication between senior management and the rest seamless. Weekly updates on the company's sales and management achievements and goals are sent to all employees.

    Cons

    The company is doomed to fail. It's management is incapable of adapting to new consumer demands. The company sticks to it's mantra of "verified data" while it's competitors create intelligent and more efficient ways of collecting data. Double standards throughout the company. Managers generally rose up the editorial ranks, but don't have the vision or knowhow to succeed in steering the company. Its competitors are light years ahead of it, and working for the company is as uninspiring as it is deflating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop living in the past. Stop calling your data collecting ants "editors" and either adjust the company goals to work with today's demand for information or sell the company and save everyone the frustration.

    Pros

    There are some good people working at Leadership Directories who have been there for quite a while. They are dedicated and work hard to make it a success.

    Cons

    Management has been incredibly weak since founder stepped down. Ineffective CEO was forced to step down due to illness and there currently is a caretaker CEO.
    The company does not have a compelling strategy to turn its business around and get back to growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're not willing to do the difficult things needed to turn around the biz, sell it to someone who is. It's no fun watching the business disintegrate.
