    Pros

    employee sample sales, some divisions within the company are awesome to work for and treat you like family, benefits were free but now we have to pay for it. learning tool,

    Cons

    Upper Management say one thing and do the other. Promise you things but never fulfill them. very difficult to move up, no employee discounts, if people don't understand the work they get a smaller account and the person who knows the work gets the double workload. The director treats people unfairly, unless you are good friends with the director then you move up and are treat different.

    Advice to Management

    Get retrain in being a human being with feelings and how the company really works, ask the people who do the work for advice before changing the work load. appreciate the employee more

    Pros

    The benefits are great (but they may be getting rid of these next yr), the less senior employees are wonderful and always have great ideas.

    Cons

    They are operating in the stone age - no innovation whatsoever. Everything is based on your age - if you are 45+ I would recommend working here, if not, go elsewhere bc your ideas, opinions and pov won't matter. No culture and very very low morale.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN TO YOUR YOUNGER EMPLOYEES. BOOST MORALE!!!

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

    Pros

    Usually only worked 40-45 hours/week. Thought it was stable. Good benefits. A wide variety of projects. Very challenging.

    Cons

    Toward the end I was often working 45-55 hours/week, and sometimes more. People kept getting laid off and the remaining employees had to take on more projects. Deadlines were and work load were not adequately discussed.

    Advice to Management

    I think everyone would be happier if we discussed and communicated more about projects and workload.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, this company offers a great benefit plan

    Cons

    Director and Mgmnt promise positions knowing they will not extend later and the disrespect of employees is unbelievable

    Advice to Management

    Train the "D"irector on employee relations and also send her to school due to her lack of education, she has problems dealing with others in the real world, she is insecure and unprofessional, with her poor attitude and how she relates to others she will be the reason this company will fail and has been failing.
