    Pros

    Very family oriented. Believe in a diverse work environment and the ethics has a REAL place in the work place. Management didn't just preach diversity and ethics they LIVED it!!

    Cons

    Some management has just been in place too long. Some of the upper management was so old that they didn't even know how to use Outlook. Made their understanding of what their high tech oriented younger employees did for a living nearly impossible. Many times the younger employees who were more capable then the management and manipulating the systems and working with data were either rated too low and just neutral simply because their leadership had no grasp of what they were doing. LM was supposed to be a Functional line of employment company but many times employees were placed direclty under a program manager or lead supervisor. This creates major issues during review time as an admin might have to compete with engineers for her raises and bonuses. If the admin was correctly placed in the Functional group then the admin competed with other admins during review time. LM senior managment just couldn't grasp that review admins along side engineers was not only wrong it was damaging to employee morale.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that you employees are placed in their correct functional group and that they don't report directly to a program manager or lead supervisor. This creates conflict for the employee if the functional manager is telling the employee to follow one company policy but the program manager or lead supervisor is telling the employee to follow program policy.
