    New tasks, new contract, new deals on daily basis, never get bored

    Job security, what more would an employee need other than stable income?

    I worked at Lakeshore Engineering Services as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary paid on time and paid into any nominated bank account worldwide, per diem paid each week, good response from management in the head office, HR dept single point of contact, very professional

    Cons

    To be honest, the travel department had geographical problems, one had to explain where in the world you were travelling from, this particular department had obviously never heard of an atlas!

    Advice to Management

    Management with LES, was ok they were in the process of buying Toltest and this became their downfall, this buy out certainly didnt bring any good fortune, another Greek tragedy.

    I worked at Lakeshore Engineering Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you have the gift of gab and have the personality of a used car salesmen you can go far in this company with nothing more.

    Cons

    The company does nothing more than pass thru all the work to subcontractors. If you fall into the "Pros" about this company then you'll do ok as an employee for a few years then you'll be blamed for the issues. Sr management relies on repeating its core values for how they will get projects completed because they have no real plans to do so otherwise. Their inability to execute projects, now that their large firm not a small business, is reflected by the countless projects with issues and client evaluations. The company believes they can buy the issues away with their client when the heat is on. They have stooped so low they try to write the evaluation for the client and hand it to them instead of earning it. Look out for any promises they lure one in with. At the end if the day they dont come thru.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead weight and the car salesmen and trust the ones that do care, that you have but not listened to over the years.
