I worked at LRP Publications full-time
The people in my department were all awesome. The workload was steady. Management helped me grow professionally and was receptive to feedback to improve our products. The camaraderie and collaboration that was happening in my department made it a joy to go to work most days.
As to all the negative reviews on here, a job is what you make of it. Management is going to keep doing what they are doing unless you speak up. If your concern is something that is reasonable -- they will address it. I know because I've witnessed it.
And no, I wasn't asked to write this. I just want to send a message to someone who might be discouraged by all these negative reviews: Don't be. Because I was myself at one point. And now I realize that none of those things hold a candle to the good things that are happening at LRP, especially in my department.
It's quiet sometimes, but you get used to it. The CEO was not very engaging.
Advice to Management
I honestly would say do exactly what you are doing. And maybe loosen up just a bit.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at LRP Publications.
I applied directly on their website on 3/8/2017 and had a phone interview on 3/17/2017. During the interview I asked how long the process was and I was told I would hear back within 24 to 48 business hours. A week came and went and I did not hear anything. I did get an email saying they selected another candidate. I understand the recruiter is busy but don't set a time frame and not meet it. It is just unprofessional. I did not bother to follow up with them after the 24/48 hours as that was discouraging and the reviews of current and past employees did not motivate me. I hope the person that got selected does well and is treated well. As for me, it seems like I dodged a bullet from this company! I am pleased with the result.
