    Pros

    Interesting, exciting work. Can be very challenging.

    Cons

    Management has tried to turn the consulting services offered by Lerch Bates into a commodity. Insufficient attention is spent on training and maintaining industry knowledge. Too much focus on $ and growth vs quality of services provided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on customer service and employee knowledge growth.

    The people make Lerch Bates what it is.

    Senior management is too focused on $, and trying to turn LB into a "large" company. Need to return to core businesses and focus on customer.
