    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.

    I have been working at LCG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Small family mentality. Often have happy hours company wide where you can meet the top players or fellow new comers.

    Cons

    Micro management is present with a lot of their teams from what i am understanding. I know we have to account personally for every hour we work

    Advice to Management

    Switch to fringe benefits as not all employees want the benefits you force on to us. I would much rather have the mandatory 3.25 an hour the govn't requires to a 401k as many of the bigger contractors do.

    Pros

    LCG suffered some peculiar and arguably unethical management problems years ago but those problems have been resolved, the problem personnel have been dismissed and the climate has improved towards a focus on doing good work for our customers.

    Business development has demonstrated an increasingly strong capability of landing contracts and keeping the company fiscally healthy. economic woes were turned around in record time in an impressive display of financial mitigation.

    LCG appears to promote from within almost exclusively. This opportunity for advancement is one of its greatest strengths and undersold by management. Fortunately, the policy seems to be working fine as far as avoiding the "Peter Principle" as well.

    Cons

    As a small company, LCG is not in a position to provide a large number of fancy perks.

    I do have concerns LCG may suffer if we get an economic recovery and quality personnel get poached.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful of compensation packages in the event of an economic recovery. Severe brain drain is a true threat to the continued success of the company.

    Don't give up on the corporate event planning. The gestures were welcome despite sparse participation. HR should not feel demoralized when some events aren't as popular as hoped. This is an early stage. Perhaps monthly is too ambitious. Quarterly and closer to work locations and starting times right after work might help participation rates.

    Pros

    - Great people who are competent, friendly and enthusiastic
    - A fun place to work if in the right team
    - Encourages people to take charge of their own careers and strives to provide opportunities in employees' areas of interest
    - HR is actually pleasant to work with and is quite efficient

    Cons

    - Not a place for big company types who crave for structure, direction and clear career paths.
    - Based on what team you are assigned to, the experience can vary significantly. No "LCG way" of doing things; everything depends on your team and the client.
    - Lack of brand recognition in the marketplace. The time spent doing poor quality work at a big firm might look better on your resume than doing great work here. LCG needs to compensate this by improving the brand or offering higher salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Work on improving the company's brand - it will help in attracting and retaining good talent in addition to growing the business. The current updates on business results are great, but considering most of the employees are technology professionals and the business is technology services, it would be great if a coherent technology strategy and road-map are thought through and provided.
