    I have been working at LMS North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    flexible work schedule (atleast on paper)

    Cons

    1) Unbelievably rude management that does give a S*** about your life outside work.
    2) Extremely pathetic handling of customer requests and planning of work load.
    3) the only thing you always hear from managers and leaders here is why dont you finish faster. not once do they give a pat on the shoulder to say you did well.
    4) You can never ever ever get hold of managers to listen to any issues you have other than project related
    5) if you come to this company, you should be THE OMNISCIENT to earn even basic humane respect - if it so happens that there existed on this planet one thing that you did not know, you can kiss your esteem goodbye.

    Advice to Management

    learn management and teach what it is to do well as a company - it is not always and only sales numbers that count

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging work
    Good combination of computer science, application engineering
    Good colleagues
    International exposure/organization
    Company attempts to allow good work/home balance

    Cons

    Limits to job growth given HQ is in Europe

  5. "Student Co-Op"

    I worked at LMS North America (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly office and was able to do useful and meaningful work as a student intern (full time in the summer and part time during the school year during my junior year), very easy to communicate with staff

    Cons

    Recently acquired by Siemens PLM meaning that more corporate styles have been added to the offices, sometimes work was also a little repetitive but could be due to limited training and timing at the location

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be a strong support system for your employees and available as much as possible. Also work on maintaining a strong office culture despite the newer corporate standards

    Pros

    Reasonably generous vacation policy. Services management (brought over from Emmeskay) was very good still.

    Cons

    Engineering services had a large culture-clash with the sales group. President was a poor leader

    Advice to Management

    The European management seemed much more reasonable. The American management seemed extremely "corporate": political, backstabbing, etc. They should be replaced, or the culture adjusted.


  7. "Was very much like a small family until greed happened!"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Flexible schedule
    Employee appreciation (even though Sales was king and everyone else a pee-on)
    Friendly and helpful coworkers (especially non-egotistical customer services)
    Everyone generally cares for each other with the exception of a few that thought they were God...

    Cons

    Management only focus on sales
    Administration group scrambling to be 100% accurate while the group was very limited in ratio to the orders
    If you aren't SALES you are nobody
    Especially if you aren't an engineer you are not special and they reminded you of that
    No room for growth ... Raises were by the pennies each year and if you are not sales, forget that too!
    Belgian leaders have no mercy
    Used the same IT management software since the conception of the company

    Advice to Management

    Sales and bottom line isn't everything ... But maybe I am wrong since you were sold because of the bottom line!
    Focus on everyone, not just sales
    Encourage and promote within don't insult the current talent by bringing in outsiders.

    Pros

    Scheduling flexibility and benefits are great including healthcare, 401k, and vacation

    Cons

    VERY sales oriented. Sales team is most favored group by far

    Advice to Management

    Focus not only on Sales staff - appreciate supporting functions

    Pros

    Many friendly faces and good team to work with on the surface. Pitch a good message. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Not too many are actually trustworthy, and management can be ruthless. Creates CYA attitude. Very little room for career growth in this subsidiary sales office.
