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

    Pros

    Everyone I have worked with has been great. All travel is paid for as well

    Cons

    The management is severely undertrained which leads to many more issues. The company is very misleading in your professional growth through the company. The company is very disorganized when it come to logistics, which causes the company to lose more money than it should.

    Pros

    If you like to travel, this could be the job for you. Every day is different for me which is great. Great benefits too.

    Cons

    Pay, pay, pay. Also, management makes many promises but then doesn't follow through. Finally, you may feel that you get forgotten about on the road.

    Advice to Management

    Could be a great company but think about how you are treating your employees.

    I worked at LRA Worldwide (More than a year)

    Pros

    - get to earn traveling miles

    Cons

    A traveling consultant job sounded like the best job ever, but I learned that it was not. I was sent to small towns in the middle of nowhere with very few options to eat. In addition, I was often schedule to fly out at 6 am on Mondays and arrived home after midnight on Fridays.

    Advice to Management

    Management was not helpful. Play favoritism. The "Senior Advising Consultant" was not supportive and

    Pros

    Direct supervisors were great to work with, high expectations but low stress, competitive wage and benefits, good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Hired as a full-time employee, but was treated like a contractor, promises made during the hiring process were not kept, upper management not responsive to inquiries.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful with the reality of opportunities, do not ignore questions from employees.

    Pros

    airline miles and hotel points- if you're not being sent to the middle of nowhere, you can become brand loyal with a hotel chain and an airline and get some cool perks!

    Cons

    Everything else.

    With the travel every week, having any sort of work-life balance is impossible. Unless you consider a "life" sitting alone in a hotel room doing endless amounts of surveys and reports. There is zero comradarie between employees because you really never meet each other, besides minimal training opportunities. You work long hours and are compensated at less than minimum wage for the hours that you work. It's extremely grueling, and you're very rarely appreciated by upper management.

    Pros

    Deloitte benefits - PTO - health insurance

    Cons

    Unqualified middle management who unfairly and irregularly discusses performance or initiates check-ins or inquires about your overall wellbeing. A company that expects unlimited flexibility from its employees but gives nothing back in return. There is no interest in your personal career goals or personal qualifications. If you decide to commit to this company remember your just a game piece to them to impress the client. Their is no point in being a top performer as it seems to mean nothing to them. Greater Deloitte will not see past your LRA history as they themselves recognize lra has not much to offer.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the employees with potential and possibly have more competitive hiring practices so you aren't having to babysit all of your consultants.

    Pros

    The pros working for LRA are nonexistent with the exception of the fact that you can add "Deloitte & Touche" to your resume when your client engagement within LRA ends. You will have the privilege to say you were apart of Deloitte and will receive their benefits for as long as you are employed with LRA.

    Cons

    LRA was acquired by Deloitte in 2015 but the company has not adopted the "real" Deloittte culture, policies or pay levels. What this means is that should you accept a position within LRA, you will receive all of the Deloitte benefits but only for as long as you are contracted with your existing client. Once your current client engagement ends, be prepared to be laid-off regardless of how good of a job you do because LRA will not assist you in anyway to be rolled on to a new project. (Be warned that leadership will tell you that you should not worry because LRA has plenty of projects that you could be rolled on to or that they are working on acquiring new business..... Do not believe any of it.) If you were in a "real" division within Deloitte your resource manager and team lead would be working to get you placed on a new engagement as your existing one comes to and end. Due to the fact that LRA has been acquired by Deloitte within the last year and a half the LRA team leads and resource managers do not have the internal networking connections within Deloitte to do anything to help you advance or move forward from an existing engagement. They will tell you they are attempting to place you but it is only words. Their main goal is to keep you hanging on so that you will keep working hard to meet the needs of the current client but when its over, you will be laid-off. My advice for anyone considering LRA as a "foot in the door" to the "real" Deloitte, put all of your efforts into networking with as many leaders within Deloitte (not LRA) as you can from day one. Do not wait until you come to the end of your current engagement to try and reach out and "network."

    Advice to Management

    You are not leaders and you should all be ashamed of yourselves.

    I worked at LRA Worldwide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As stated in another review, all of the positives come from the parent company, Deloitte - PTO, health benefits. LRA offers nothing but junk.

    Cons

    Terrible pay regardless of experience and really poor compared to other similar positions are other companies. They hire you for a project but assure you during the interview that you are being hired as a long term employee. Come the end of the project, everyone is laid off with no warning. There is not communication from management regarding changes to the project until you ask what is this new aspect and then a magic email with all the information you needed a week ago appears. Really a garbage job. If they tell you about the option to move to Deloitte projects, they are just lying.

    Advice to Management

    None. They know what they are doing to the employees and they do not care
