    Pros

    Great people, smart, conscientious, inquisitive.

    Cons

    Burdened by docile culture, nobody wants to make waves and status quo rules the day. Too much focus on getting along and not getting it done - a handful of assertive people get their way even if it's bad for the company. Bureaucracy can be albatross. Senior people with good strategies don't hold each other and subordinates accountable for execution.

    Advice to Management

    Process mapping, cut out the layers - offer real training to junior leaders and let them make decisions. Every executive needs to get out of headquarters and listen. New CEO is saying all the right things, if he is 50% effective it LMI will be a different company in 12 months.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are great and the company tries hard to maintain a collegial atmosphere. There are a lot of different and interesting contracts to work on and most employees are very dedicated to their work.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work and so it's easy to get lost in the shuffle if you're not willing to speak up for yourself, loudly. In my case, my personal interests were overlooked, despite my own and other's vocal opposition, for the benefit of the company; not a heinous crime by any means but the way it was handled left me feeling manipulated rather than "taking one for the team".

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employee's and employee's immediate supervisor's wishes. Mid- and upper-management can't have the time to get to know everyone they manage on a personal level so maintaining happy employees will be easier if you give value to the feedback from people working closely with them.

    I have been working at LMI full-time

    Pros

    Interesting work, nice compensation; flexible hours - work from home occasionally;

    Cons

    No upward mobility; work your tail off or just sit there all day - everyone gets the same bonus, different benefits packages for off-site employees; no camaraderie;

    Advice to Management

    Won't matter - they are not listening

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

    Pros

    Good starting pay. Multiple bonuses throughout the year. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Yearly raises are small. I went from a Entry level tester position to a lead business analyst position and I got a $4000 bump but still make less than $60,000.

    Seem to hired on more to fill a spot on a contract and will lay me off once this project is done. Geared more towards highly experienced and proven performance individuals. As a young person in the industry, I feel like I got taken advantage. I am by far the youngest person at this site.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and keep young employees engaged. They have lots of new and innovative ideas to bring you that you should harness.

    "Analyst"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at LMI full-time

    Pros

    - You can easily work 8 hour days here, not 10-12 like others
    - Won't throw you out when a contract ends; I've seen them float people for 3 months on overhead

    Cons

    - Very limited upward mobility
    - The incredible amount of bureaucracy makes this company move slower than the government

    Advice to Management

    - You must be more dynamic, or you will be out-competed! Don't become a dinosaur!
    - Listen to your people. Ideas should flow up into new lines of business. As you're looking at this, you have talent stagnating, getting frustrated, and leaving!
