    Pros

    Built lifelong camaraderie with my analyst class. Learnt a great deal of technical skills.

    Cons

    Horrible hours, terrible bosses - lots of ill tempered higher ups. Academic types who are unable to do proper project management. Mid-level managers were calm level headed and technically sound professionals who kept the boat afloat.

    Advice to Management

    You should have stayed a private company!

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

    Pros

    Smart people. Leading academics and expertise across a bunch of areas. Recruit from the best schools. Good quality of life for a consulting company

    Cons

    No rhyme or reason at management level- company goes through phases where strategy is short term and makes no sense.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. There are a bunch of talented people here who, like you, want the best for the company. Financing deals is not the core competency of the company - economic consulting is.

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

    Pros

    Great people culture. LECG was a fantastic group of talent brought together in the practice.The practice level management was good and proactive in moving the practice forward.

    Cons

    Upper level management lacked direction and focus and was many times absent all together. In the ifnal days of the company, management did a poor job coomunicating objectives and outcomes as it related to the downsizing.

    Advice to Management

    THere really is nothing to put here since the company is out of business. The LECG 2.0 firm of BRG seems to have taken on many of the corporate personalities of LECG.
