    I worked at LaSalle Network full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I thought they would keep me working, though it took some time to get my only assignment.

    Cons

    After my contract ended March 2016 they never found me another job even though it ended great.

    Advice to Management

    When you say you have a job, really have one. People want and need to work. Don't fight people tooth and nail for their unemployment benefits, especially when you have not found them another assignment.

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

    Pros

    The people I work with are the best and I know I have developed friendships there that will last a lifetime.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours get to be a little too much, but at the same time I feel like I have developed a great work ethic because of it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep the transparency even as we grow. The ratio of managers to employees might be a little low in certain groups.

    Thanks for your feedback. The hours feedback is real - hopefully you've seen though that what you put in is truly what you get out. Also, we are working on building our management team to lower that ... More

    I have been working at LaSalle Network full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    To be honest, because of the reviews that I saw on Glassdoor, I was hesitant to accept an offer from this company. However, it's important to remember that people don't hide behind their keyboards to say nice things... my time at LaSalle has been unlike any other job I've ever had. I have felt welcomed with open arms since day 1 and have already grown so much professionally through my role there. If you want to be challenged in a role and become part of a culture that feels like a family, there is no doubt you'd love LaSalle.

    Cons

    Like any job, it's a job. Recruiting isn't for the weak of heart. In this field of work it's necessary to have a hard work ethic. Yes the hours can be long, but the reward of what you accomplish in a work day makes it worth it. This recent graduate generation doesn't understand sometimes that you have to work hard to get the benefits! If you don't want to work, you probably should look else where. But working for a company that doesn't push isn't doing you any favors.

    Advice to Management

    With the company growing, it's easy to feel overwhelmed by all of the new employees. Maybe find new ways to bring people together within the company, so you have the chance to branch out more from just your unit.

    Thanks for the feedback and we are continually trying to get units to cross communicate and collaborate. I will bring that to the management meeting and staff council. Thanks!

    I worked at LaSalle Network (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free food and alcohol and that is about it. Also a few nice downtown offices. But that's seriously the only pro

    Cons

    LaSalle lies to all of their potential employees. Mind you, I am not some unhappy disgruntled employee. I like my new job and I've been promoted. I want to post this for anyone who is in the interview process. Please read and review all of the negative reviews. Nobody is lying when they say the internal marketing team spams this account with positive reviews. Just think about your choice carefully. Every single negative review is a valid warning.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire people with more experience to manage teams. Those who have grown with the company have only endured abuse and are confused about how to manage.

    It's great to see a contractor take the time to comment positively. As the research shows, the majority of people who review anonymously overwhelmingly are negative. Thank you for taking the time ... More

    I worked at LaSalle Network (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They often have lunches brought in, but that's because you have meetings and interviews scheduled around the lunch hours so it's a ploy to keep you in the office working rather than enjoying an hour break outside of the office

    Cons

    Don't you find it strange that for every 1 negative review 10 great and glowing reviews pop up to hide the truth? Great job, LaSalle internal marking team. Want the truth? Look at the negative reviews on their Facebook. The reason the rating there is a 4 is because the entire staff logged in to score a 5 to the company without writing any true and accurate response. Anyways, as an employee this place was hell on earth. I was disrespected and mistreated by teammates and management. The only people who were kind were the office assistance staff. I went on sleep aid medication and anxiety meds because of my time spent working her. I was clocking in overtime without receiving anything to show for it. They hire fresh grads to going into the carpet and work like slaves. And these grad love it because they are tricked with happy hours and food. If you want to build a career, this isn't the place! Be aware before accepting a job with them
    They also treat canadites like a sales transaction. They are great to the ones they like and pull out a red carpet and for the average ones or folks they can't help they will ignore. After every interview the canadidate is graded by the staff and discussed in depth. Most of the time they make fun of the canadites and their polish. This was very upsetting to witness which is why I left the company. They have zero integrity.

    Pros

    Pay Ok and find you jobs. Most of them meaningless.

    Cons

    Really unorganized.
    Use up employees after a few years and bring in news ones so they don't have to pay more.
    Find you jobs that don't meet any criteria on your resume.

    I can't argue with compensation. Salaries are given at the time of offers...if it's too low, you didn't have to accept the job. I don't know how much people can make driving Uber...but I'm not ... More
