    I have been working at LAC Group full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Sr management listens to ideas and gives credit where due. You can pave your own entrepreneurial path and see your actions make a positive impact - all ideas are welcome. Direct access to CEO. Flat(ish) org structure. Good communication from the top. Company works hard to reach remote employees and make them feel like part of the team.

    Cons

    Can be lonely if you are remote.

    Thank you, including for the great headline, "Employees can make a difference." Regarding your comment that remote work can be lonely, there is truth to that, so we encourage you to drop in on the online "water cooler" now and again for some remote socializing. Thank you again for ...

    Pros

    Professional and well structured company to work for, I was impressed with the interview process and how well organized they were and are. Management does a wonderful job, at communicating at all levels. New ideas are welcomed when brought up to management, and they are put into action. Work-life balance is key for me and LAC Group definitely has it!

    Cons

    No comment, as I am new to the company

    Former Employee - Administrative Services Librarian 

    I worked at LAC Group full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I worked for LAC Group in three different positions over a period of 5 years. Two were temporary and one was on site with a law firm. LAC's recruiters were able to find me positions when I needed them, and I am most appreciative for that. The benefits were the biggest attraction of LAC Group for me, compared to other temp agencies. I probably could have continued in the law firm position indefinitely. I left for...

    Cons

    I personally don't flourish in the corporate law culture, which I didn't realize until I worked in it. Even though my last assignment was as a permanent employee, it was not clear to me if there were opportunities for professional advancement within the company. When you serve many utilitarian functions, Job security > Career satisfaction.

    Pros

    LAC has a highly entrepreneurial environment that recognizes the value of new ideas and innovation.

    Cons

    Sr. management need to work on their communications skills; we went through a major technology change last year that could have gone smoother if we had a longer ramp-up.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to get more input from staff before undertaking any major changes in technology, benefits or processes.

    I have been working at LAC Group full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Decent wages My health care plan is comprehensive and has a low premium My actual onsite job is a great place to work and I enjoy what I do there

    Cons

    Poor, often condescending communication from C-suite PTO recording system is non-functional and has been so for over a year - and they have yet to actually fix it, though they constantly say they're working on it No sick time, and not very much PTO per year They say they will match our 401(k) contributions but have not actually done so for as long as I've been working here They ask for a lot of company loyalty without...

    I have been working at LAC Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Access to good assignments in the Washington D.C. area

    Cons

    The pay, the so-called "benefits", the lack of leadership

    Advice to Management

    LAC Group sounds good on paper, but the reality of working for them is not as positive. Too many people in middle management who seem to cater mostly for themselves and not those of us "on assignment", and upper management is embarrassingly out of touch. And the benefits are not even remotely competitive: 15 days of "PTO", which includes sick time, and they just withdrew their obligation to match 401K contributions. Think...
