    I have been working at LaSalle Network full-time (Less than a year)


    Open environment where learning and feedback happens on the fly. You can ask for anything you want, provided you are ready to here what you need to do to get there. There is a lot of talk about "hours" but the hours here are pretty typical and flexible for any sort of life event. Most researchers take a full hour lunch so hours are not an issue. Management is empathetic to life situations and will work with you through whatever is happening in your personal life. There are a lot of perks that don't necessarily come out on your paycheck but do pay off in the long run. Free beer is something I see talked about a lot. If that is the top perk you are looking for or think here, it is not the right place for you. There are a lot of events and social possibilities here that add to the benefits but are by no means required to get ahead. Career progression is given to those that earn it (a meritocracy). I have found that as I have moved up, I have been less involved socially and it has not impacted my ability to progress here. I find that I learn a lot of facts about market trends, company movements and general business skills just by working here and being around the leaders. I won't lie and say everyday is great. The majority of days I am excited to come in to work (actually excited) and that to me, is all I can ask for. I work here because I love the way this company is run and the senior leadership treats us. The goal is to do business the right way, rather than to make a quick buck. I respect that and love to work here because of it.


    It takes a bit of time to get "over the hump". Once you do, there is no looking back. Like anything else, it takes time to be good at something. The good part is that they will tell you exactly what to work on to improve. Some people can't handle that type of direct feedback. In my experience, it is never abrasive and is always objective. It is a bit of an old school work environment. Being at the office, everyday is something that I don't see going anywhere. I personally do not mind but it does bother some. Does not have the same perks as some other post startup companies. Would love further expansion of commuter benefits and health programs.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to expand on the perks that other companies in the market have adopted. While there are people that may not love working here, most people I know and work with genuinely love working here. Keep up with the feedback.
