    Pros

    beautiful building, indoor gym, great pay, personal space, you can get certification at your own pace with no pressure.

    Cons

    Difficult to move to a different department if you want to move up in the company or even make a change. Training is highly lacking. Some departments have DOS systems and you work using function keys and black/green screens. Supervisors are not all certified ! but they can run a department? Employees know more than the supervisors and are certified.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for better computer systems instead of ice cream days. Have the managers take all the LOMA classes for there job and get certified.

    Pros

    Competitive compensation; good benefits including share ownership scheme, annual bonus and employee discounts, excellent training that allows to progress in your understanding of the job and develop hard and soft skills to enhance your career. Excellent team culture!

    Cons

    The salary growth is pretty slow as you progress from the bottom ranks. The opportunities to network and meet people from the industry are limited.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate the vision and the direction of the company in a much more effective way.

    Pros

    As in the Title the people are fantastic, it si an company where you can get stuff done without being dragged into the politics to much however if you are a political animal it has plenty of games to play ! The offices in Kingswood are fantastic with great facilities including a pool, gym and loads of pitches for all sports. Good canteen and coffee bar and very clean and well maintained, car park can be interesting at times but overall 5* for a working environment. Benefits package is always good, especially and unsurprisingly the pension is fantastic.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of change in recent years which has a negative impact on staff moral but as an outsider I can still see what a great place to work L&G is. Communication from managers to staff has always been an issue and I belive this is still the case.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to love your staff again, the ethos has always been an arm around the shoulder and positive encouragement instead of a stick, make sure you return fully to that ethos as a happy workforce is a dynamic, focused workforce..

    Pros

    Good people, generally good atmosphere, good customer culture. Work life balance is pretty good - people are not expected to work long hours. Benefits package is generous.

    Cons

    Frustratingly slow decision making. Recent change in CEO means change in direction and strategy that is not clear. Some areas are under-resourced.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a strategy, stick with it, communicate it clearly and listen to your employees feedback. Upgrade IT systems.

    Pros

    I worked in the Kingswood office and valued the out of London location. Great work/life balance (gym, yoga, running and football on site and flexible hours), happy and clever colleagues, excellent cafeteria and resources. The company was very supportive of study and professional development.

    Cons

    Somewhat sleepy village, no opportunities to network outside the company. Team based culture which I personally liked but it does make it more difficult for individuals to stand out.
