    Pros

    LaSalle is the kind of place that makes you work to earn it. As many of these reviews state you work really hard and they expect a lot out of you but if you truly want to make a career for yourself here then you have to show it in the beginning and it will be recognized. Your manager is always there for you no matter what the situation- personal or professional. They may push you with work related things but they are also empathetic and will change the world to make sure you are happy. It is a matter of building trust.

    Career advancement is completely within reach. They train you in the beginning on the basics in a group style. Then you have one on one training with your manager for the first few weeks and the training team has developed a packet to show you how you are improving and where you stand. It is well formulated. The training and development team is there to help you whether you are brand new or have been here for years. There are always ways to better yourself professionally and they come from the industry so they understand.

    C-suite is incredible. I owe my job to these people and my future career. From HR to operations to the CEO himself...they are all the type of people who want to get to know you and want to see you succeed. They have pushed me to do more than I ever thought I could which has moved my career along at a lightning pace. They see potential in you and give you all the tools to grow and succeed.

    Talk about collaboration... I have never experienced an environment that relies so heavily on teammates, leadership and other departments to be successful. If something on your team isn't working they want your opinions and ideas to make it better. If one team is struggling they reach out to others for answers. It is the definition of collaboration.

    You'll meet life-long friends here too. These people are here to hold you up when things get rough and make you laugh. I couldn't imagine going through life without these crazy, quirky, weird people :)

    Cons

    This environment isn't for everyone. If you are looking for a steady day job where you clock in at 9 and clock out at 5 this probably isn't the right place. No one will say you have to work over time but if you want to learn and succeed, and are passionate about growing you career then you do it when necessary. Not a really a con but something to note.

    Communication styles are different here. We believe in raw reactions. So, we don't really have a filter when we run around the office or when we have meetings because we want employees to be able to speak how they truly feel. Sometimes it is a graceful comment and sometimes it is raw emotion but it is all said to help learn, grow and motivate team members. Again, not a con but if you like poised and perfect all the time then this might not be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    The only thing I will say is that c-suite or HR should sit down with each team member who has been here 1-3 years to see how they are feeling. Sometimes it is hard to say everything to your manager and a check in from a different person/voice might help.

    Otherwise, keep doing what you are doing.
