    Pros

    -Profit sharing

    Pointless, they don't want to see the issues

    Work/life balance
    Benefits - Tuition assistance, FMLA, health, 401k
    Management
    Loomis continues to improve its business through growth and innovation. We work hard to determine what works best for us and invest in said things. Loomis surveyed the employees and listened to what the employees wanted - development, training, innovation and leadership opportunities.

    Loomis provides a competitive comprehensive package. Coupled with the work/life balance, benefits, and culture is truly is one of the best places to work.

    Cons

    The cons that I used to have were addressed when Loomis surveyed the employees and implemented new things (training, development).

    It is difficult to move within the company. Employees are pretty happy and positions rarely open up. Typically, the positions are new jobs and are extremely competitive both with internal and external candidates.

    Advice to Management

    Continue what you are doing and ensure you listen to the employees. The survey is a great way to have our voices heard.

    Pros

    Investment positions are given a lot of independence and freedom to develop views on the markets. Success is rewarded and as the company is growing, management will often provide opportunities to expand the responsibilities of high perrformers.

    Cons

    Independence is a double edged sword. You need to be able to understand the organization, how to add value to the investment process and convince others of important ideas in order to succeed.

    Pros

    Extremely competent people, all-around very smart, coupled with unparalleled work-life balance. Most everyone is friendly, happy to be in the office and enjoy what they do. All of this while the firm continues to well as a whole.

    Cons

    With so many people who have been there for a long time, training could be better, as it is sometimes forgotten that newer people do not know the ins and outs of the company.
