    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

    Great benefits package, and various training programs offered. A huge plus was the ability to work remotely.

    Cons

    Due to being a contractor working at client site, there wasn't much communication between managers and employees of LCG.

    Advice to Management

    I advise management to visit client sites more often, to close the communication gap, as this can lead to loss of contracts.

    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.

    "LCG Systems- HQ and client site review"

    Pros

    Nice people, office, and if you are at the HQ bldg- you get free fruit, drinks, and other perks. The building is secure which is a plus if you work later hours.

    Cons

    Corporate culture hard to break into the clique. Lack of dedicated, qualified tester for their in-house software development efforts lead me to believe that the client is not getting top quality products. Even though client sites are only a few miles from the HQ, the little perks are not available such as fruit, drinks, etc. --sort of makes you feel you aren't really part of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Deliver some of your HQ perks to workers forced to be at client sites, often a fruit basket and some free soft drinks and a visit by management once in a while would go a long way towards making sure everyone feels they are part of the company.

    Pros

    Good professional development of career, always willing to accommodate for new certifications and training where possible and budget not withstanding.

    Cons

    no real growth opportunity. company growing, but you're either a manager of sorts or "in the field", so to speak.

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees informed of ways to advance their career. Maybe a mentor/apprentice type role where we could find out how the management team works.
