Mission: Lloyd was founded to create opportunities to earn, learn and live better.
I have been working at Lloyd Group full-time
I wish I could give 4.5 stars because Lloyd is definitely not perfect. However, what Lloyd Excels at is listening to employee problems and trying to put its Employees first as much as it can.
Additionally, the Culture at Lloyd is great. Lloyd tends to hire people who are not only competent in their field but more importantly a culture fit. Everybody is friendly and always willing to help and because of this, it makes all of our company events (usually at least once a month) that much more fun.
Lloyd has 3 locations which make it extremely convenient for anyone who lives in Philly, Princeton or access to Manhattan. The Manhattan office is just a few blocks away from Penn and Grand Central
I have worked for other MSPs before and I have never had the flexibility that I have had at Lloyd. Whether it is working from home, taking PTO or needing to switch hours, Lloyd has been extremely accomodating in this regard.
Bottom line is, as an analyst, you have an opportunity to learn a lot in a fast pace as you are able to work on so many different network setups in any given day. Lloyd is seen as a great stepping stone to another opportunity HOWEVER that is not to say that Lloyd is lacking in opportunities to grow. There are many career paths that you can take within Lloyd and if you are a good fit, the management will do its best to see that you are accommodated as much as they can.
While I mentioned above, the management tries to put Employees first, they are not always the greatest at communicating their motives and strategies to do so. They have been getting better at this though.
If you are in an analyst position, being On-Call isn't the greatest but they are working on limiting the hours at which On-Call is actually On Call by hiring people to work the late shifts.
Advice to Management
Management appears to be going in the right direction with the company and while there have been some bumps on the road, they appear to know what they're doing so they don't need any advice from me.
I applied online. I interviewed at Lloyd Group.
I was interviewed by three different people (one after another) about different aspects of account and project management. They explained how the position would interface with different departments and teams. I was able to ask several questions of each interviewer about the position and requirements of the job.
