Great work life balance. Telecommuting option is great.
Very cyclical. Sometimes very busy and at other times very light on work.1

From the perspective of a young professional, LMI is not an unwise place to begin your career. The benefits at LMI are very competitive from an industry perspective. Aspirants for an advanced degree have a tuition reimbursement program available. The retirement contribution plan is also outstanding- fresh college grads can start building a retirement nest-egg, even if you are in debt up to your eyeballs. Work/life balance here is also very good with generous leave policies. As a jumping off point into government consulting world, LMI is much less cut-throat than other firms, which makes it very accessible.
The starting salary for entry level is on the very low end of the industry average, justified by a "stellar" benefits package. In truth, many of the benefits hailed in the package are not geared towards young professionals and those that are, such as tuition reimbursement, have been drastically reduced recently. Since many employees are now off-site, the HQ tends to be a bit deserted with very limited engagement opportunities for those not consistently on-site. Raises and bonuses are also tied to overall company bookings and are based only partially on merit. This can be incredibly frustrating for those looking to move up or increase their salary through hard work, which may I remind you is already low. In addition, promotions, getting exposure and moving in between divisions are also very difficult as the organization has a rather flat corporate structure.4

Good work life balance and flexible.
Bureaucracy. Those who’ve been there a long time don’t always welcome new ideas.LMI Response2y

Depending on the department, the management is excellent. They try hard to be transparent and are often open to talk. Work/life balance is respected.
Moving within the company is very difficult. People tend to find their place and own it for years (and I mean 10+ years), even the lower level position.

I have been satisfied with career advancement opportunities and have a great work life balance and am able to telework full time with limited exceptions. Great benefits package and salary is good for not working crazy hours.
Compensation a bit less than competitors but factoring in work life balance and total hours worked it is competitive.LMI Response2y

Retirement benefits even after recent cuts remains very strong. If you are able to work at a client site, the downward trends back at HQ are easy to ignore. Work life balance is generally still good, however, the trend is for management to request more 'on your own time' (aka non-billable) work to offset their own high overhead expenses. Work life balance varies widely by manager.
The current CEO and Senior Management are attempting to follow a for profit structure, at a not-for-profit company. The question of what LMI wants to be has long been up in the air, it appears we are headed for a Booz style structure, but no manager will admit to that. There is not much opportunity for promotion within the company due to a small/flat management structure with a large projectized consulting staff. Senior Management only pays lip service to staff at all levels, and does not utilize the internal talent at LMI to make decisions (CEO often hires outside groups to study COAs). Rumors of huge management bonuses while the rest of the staff has seen wage stagnation have harmed morale and created an environment of mistrust. The new workspace office environment has further harmed morale. The staff is reasonable and would have accepted change to an open concept plan, however, it is difficult to understand how after so much money was spent (again, while the staff absorbs wage stagnation) the new building serves our needs so poorly.19
