  1. "Customer Service Representative"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at LandAmerica Financial Group full-time

    Pros

    Quarterly bonuses were great. Strong teamwork environment. Casual attire permitted. There was a gaming space on the first floor of our building to allow employees to relax and let off some steam.

    Cons

    Worked a lot of hours, especially every last 5 days of every month. Not unusual to work 12 hour days, but we were compensated for our time and we were fed while working.

    Competitive pay and reasonable work load, creating a good work/life balance.

    Corporate didn't understand local offices and made bad decisions due to this. Wasn't a sense of shared values.

    Listen to local offices and know what is going on before making bad decisions. Reduce 'good ole boys club' mentality.

    Pros

    Plenty of happy talk while they were in business. Nice employee benefits.

    Cons

    The top management at this company went on an acquisition binge during the real estate bubble and financed it through debt. They didn't understand many of the companies they were buying and were frustrated to find that they didn't operate as their core title business. They went bankrupt because they invested the escrow funds of 1031 real estate investors into incredibly risky auction rate securities and lost their money.

    Advice to Management

    You were arrogant and incompetent. You lost a lot of innocent investor's and employees money. Shame on you.

    Pros

    Out of all the IT departments for small or large enterprises, LFG was my favorite. Serious, yet personable and fun.

    Cons

    They filed for Bankruptcy in a short amount of time without warning. Kind of wondered how no one saw it coming or if they did, tried to right the ship.

    Advice to Management

    After Chapter 11 is completed, bring LFG back to life.
