Pros

Decent benefits although I understand that has changed significantly since my departure. If you establish the right connections and stay on the party line, you can advance. There isn't much pressure to do things the right way and a complete lack of focus on continual improvement. So, if you just want to go to a job each day and bring home a paycheck, it's a good place to "hide."

Cons

Lots of politics, lack of direction and support from senior and executive management, incompetent technical leadership. They aren't really interested in ideas from employees. If you publicly stray from the party line, you will be isolated and eventually moved out.

Advice to Management

Create a strategy to implement your vision. There seems to be good conversations and a decent vision but a complete lack of a realistic implementation plan.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for LandAmerica are they are not too large of a company where politics and procedures constantly get in the way, but they are large enough to offer plenty of room for advancement. They are very willing to let you explore different career paths within the company. They are very open to ideas and will give you the resources necessary to pursue those ideas. They seem to be very flexible with time off for personal reasons and holidays. The benefits package is pretty good with a decent 401K and health insurance is top notch. All-in-all they are a good company to work for.

    Cons

    Not really their fault, but because of the current housing market there have been a lot of layoffs. Although I have noticed they will try to move a good employee to another position if their current position has been eliminated.

    Advice to Management

    I cannot really think of anything I would suggest

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    In the industry, they are probably the company that will lay you off last, meaning holding on to there staff longer.

    Cons

    Don't expect Tenure or Experience to be part of the decision when it is time to let people go. It seems like the corporate office picks names from a hat and that is who goes.

    Advice to Management

    The work and dedication from the heart can come from the experienced and highest tenure employees. Even though these may be the higher paid, these are the ones willing to go out of their way to do the job. Think that employees that came from an acquired company, have their roots still with the company.
