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

    Pros

    -Management open to working with you to make sure you build the future you want
    -I really feel like LCG is making a big effort to make sure I am taken care
    -Management and HR go the extra mile to make you feel like they want you to stay at LCG and grow
    -Free training and certs!
    -Management will sit with you and talk about your future/growth opportunities. I dont feel like Im stuck in the same job forever.
    -Planned activities and outings
    -Great benefits!
    -Very generous company

    Cons

    -Some of the small client sites (with 3 or less employee's) sometimes seem forgotten. Just as perks are at bigger client sites (water coolers, free refreshments, kitchens, microwaves, refrigerators) they should also be made available for employee's at smaller sites
    -More opportunities outside the Rockville area
    - No Employee purchase program

    Advice to Management

    Overall, LCG is an excellent company that really works hard to make sure their employees are happy. Keep working at making sure the connections stays strong between corporate and your employee's.

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

    Pros

    Executives and Corporate Staff are committed to employees, and employees are committed to the company in return. Excellent benefits. Pay is reviewed annually for performance and benchmarking. Employees are often promoted within.

    Cons

    Extended work hours are sometimes expected depending on projects and workload.

    Advice to Management

    Management should continue to consider employees when making decisions.

    Pros

    Open collaborative enviroment where employees are valued! The majority of employees are very committeed to seeing the company succeed and therefore, there is a true team culture.

    Cons

    Still growing and with that comes growing pains! Things at time can seem a little unstructured but with time this should iron itseld out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep aiming big but be mindful of how thin people are spread. Dont forget that it's not always about revenue and that investment in your employees, even at the expense of the bottom line, in the long run will always be fruitful!

    -Management
    -Benefits
    -Innovation
    LCG Systems is continuously working to improve its standing as a preferred employer in the federal government space. The benefits package, management communication and opportunity to be involved in innovative technologies is excellent.

    Cons

    LCG Systems promotes training and certification so well that many of its employees move into the federal government space. This doesn't always leave the coverage that it should to focus and fulfill the company mission.

    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

    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.
