    I worked at LCG full-time

    Pros

    Felt like: solid specialty in small contract bids and work. Great source of experience for new laborers in the IT field. A company that recognizes competent workers and in-turn will reward you with job security.

    - Friendly, hard-working, and responsive staff
    - Recognition and praise for a job well done
    - Recognition of skilled workers
    - First day, casual lunch with Project Manager/Supervisor
    - Hands-off management based on trust for the most part (a privilege you earn to keep)
    - Healthcare plans were a variety of Carefirst choices with 0 deductibles for most common/basic services. Copays for common services ranging from $15-$35 per visit. Average for max out-of-pocket costs.

    Cons

    Felt like: small-to-low-medium sized company with a budget that'll struggle to retain its best employees to competing companies after year one.

    - Salaries generally range from low-to-average in comparison to similar market salaries & experience in the area
    - Typical 3 weeks (15 days) of PTO accrual per year
    - Company parties were all small family-oriented activities, cheap get-aways
    - No bonuses, maybe giftcard reward, likely a nice thank you card and/or edible treat

    - Healthcare plan premiums were average-medium
    - Dental premium was average
    - Vision benefits and premium was average

    Pros

    It's a small company with a great culture of employees from an array of different backgrounds.

    Cons

    False promises regarding bonuses, rewards, etc; Compensation isn't the best but ultimately depends on experience.

    I worked at LCG full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small company makes it easy to speak to higher ups, HR, etc. as needed. They acknowledge and reward hard workers, to a degree. Plenty of room for growth for those who take the time and effort to go above and beyond. There's a lot of really smart and motivated people within the company to learn from.

    Cons

    False promises around raises happened more than once. Because most employees work directly on contract sites, you may never see anyone from the company outside of your team, outside of town halls. If your client has a bad culture, you will experience that culture more than the LCG culture, simply due to proximity.

    Advice to Management

    In the time I was there, there was a lot of different initiatives. Focus the roadmap and don't keep changing paths every year or so.

    I worked at LCG full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits - wide assortment. The company staff is very professional.

    Cons

    Executive shake ups happen at least once every 5 years. It doesn't affect the rank and file contractors much, but it is a little unsettling. Though the company desires to grow, the head count remains rather stagnant for all the years I was there.

    Advice to Management

    Happy customers and happy contractors will equate to a growing company.

    Pros

    Once you learn the LCG culture it can be an easy place to work. If you're not on contract site, people generally arrive at work at 10am and leave by 5pm, and try to accomplish all their work during the week so the weekend is free.

    Cons

    Power struggles among senior management slows down progress company could make. Recruiting is inept and unprofessional.COO position is replaced too often for company to have real stability. The CEO is rarely around. Long time employees complain of lack of career advancement, but advancement is really based on who senior management has the best rapport with, not ability.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in professionals to complete the task. The recruiter is hurting the company image.

    -Paid Time Off

    Cons

    -Low compensation with generally very low percentage increase.
    -New COO policy.
    -Changes in benefits with new COO.
    -Slow H R

    Advice to Management

    Call with COO does not work if employee cannot trust management. Reason lot of people are leaving. There must be something wrong with policy/management behind this.
