    I worked at LaSalle Network full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Good location & young, team-based group.

    Cons

    Almost everything about this place is a huge red flag. Questionable business practices at best, coupled with a CEO who demands constant praise and attention leads to a brainwashed and unoriginal workforce... Very little support from management and even less investment in professional development. While they do recruit for a lot of companies, sales is entirely quota and metrics-driven-- expect to work 12+ hour days,...

    Advice to Management

    Change everything you're doing now--50%+ of annual turnover. If you lose roughly half of your employees each year, something needs to change.

    To say we offer very little professional development is just not true. We have one trainer for every 50 employee. That’s a terrific ratio. Management is heavily involved in recruiting and sales, out to the c-suite. 50% annual turnover isn’t accurate either. You can be critical ...

    I have been working at LaSalle Network full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    6 years has gone by in a flash, and where I’m at in my career and what I’ve been able to achieve is something I never imagined possible. When I graduated college, just like many grads, I didn’t exactly know what I wanted to do. I had somewhat of an idea…but not really. I worked other places for a couple years and thought that the leadership I was exposed to/worked with was it…that’s what existed everywhere. But I wasn’t...

    I have been working at LaSalle Network full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    From day one it has been obvious LaSalle has something different and unique happening. There is a ton of communication. The CEO, Tom Gimbel, has been incredibly transparent and engaged at all levels. My role as PMO Manger is to come in and initiate change management. This is usually scary and uncertain for people. However, everyone has been warm, welcoming, and excited about the plans we are working on. They collectively...

    Cons

    The chairs outside Tom's office should be Cardinal's instead of Cubs :) Other than that I have zero complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great communication and transparency. I appreciate the humor and fun mixed in with the messages. Even with the fast growth make sure everyone has an opportunity (hopefully different than mine - physically speaking) to know that they are one of us and we take care of our own.
