I worked at Lagasse full-time (More than 10 years)
Co-workers very friendly, Some Sr. mgmt. will mentor you, flexibility in salaried positions. Ability to learn new things
No security, the ones that do not contribute to the good of the company are rewarded and the ones that made the company money are let go. Communication is a joke and changes are made to procedures without regard to any input to the SME.
Advice to Management
Utilize your internal talent and stop exhausting your good people and demand performance from those not producing. Get over the good ole boy handshake and allow the women with the talent to shine
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Lagasse (Deerfield, IL) in January 2015.
Internal candidate, submitted resume and had to discuss with current manager. Waiting for the interview is long and process is not communicated. Your manager can refuse to allow the talent to move for selfish reasons, you cover someone not pulling weight on your team can backfire
