    Pros

    Good people and benefits. Interesting network related work within ICRD. Pretty flexible with what you work on. Good technical training.

    Cons

    Work and advancement heavily based on holding various security clearance. Lots of reinventing the wheel because teams don't communicate. Little room for advancement at current growth rate.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees. Don't wait for them to leave to offer them a salary you think their worth.

    Pros

    Benefits, location, parking, catered lunches,

    Cons

    Management cares about themselves and about employees. Don't go to HR with problems, they'll likeky fire you. Used to be remote worki mg. Took it away without warning. If you're well liked some managers don't listen to you if you're not the person they like.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management who treats employees with a human element of respect. Nasty management.

    I have been working at LGS Innovations full-time

    Pros

    4 weeks PTO ( if they approve).

    Cons

    Company is looking to be bought and is taking on more work then it can possibly compete with the given staff. This causes extremely long hours that you can verify by looking at the parking lot during if hours. No incentives, promotions or bonuses along with minimal pay increases.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to grow the business so fast ( like wireless) and compete the work you have.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. There are a lot of great people that work for LGS.

    Cons

    Unless you work in Denver or DC, the company does not care about you. The High Point office was always ignored, lots of layoffs, and no communication with other branches. The management hired unqualified friends to run departments. Lots of long hours to fix mistakes from the headquarters. Almost no culture or unity that young companies have.

    Advice to Management

    Do not hire senior management based on friendship.

    I have been working at LGS Innovations full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    LGS provides a great balance of home and work life. They are constantly looking for ways to make work fun and interesting. I go to work everyday knowing that what I do makes a difference. The leadership has an open door policy and allows for feedback and suggestions. This is a company of 1,200 and growing but it has the feel of a small family oriented organization.

    Cons

    The commute is the biggest challenge for me. The leadership understands there are days when it may take a few minutes longer to get to work.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on the Mission and continue to keep that family oriented small-business feel.
