    Pros

    Great culture, great CEO, some good directors). Great experience and picked up some great skills.

    Cons

    L&S underpays and overworks. Expect to bring home work often. After speaking with other coworkers, I found out my male counterparts were making $6,000 more than me. It's also extremely hard to get a decent raise, even if you work extremely hard.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more freedom. Directors often dictate too much and this hurts employee growth. This is why retention is extremely bad. Pay women more - people talk and know how much each other makes.

    I have been working at Lawrence & Schiller full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have a great working culture and view on family/work balance. The people are friendly and professional.

    Cons

    There are a lot of behind the scene politics. Sometimes it can feel like a popularity contest or "what have you done for me lately" mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Make you compensation align with industry and regional expectations.

    I worked at Lawrence & Schiller full-time

    Pros

    Absolute professionals when it comes to the work they produce. Most of their people are at the top of their field, especially for this region. They have a culture that expects the employees to perform at a high level, which helps energize everyone to produce their best work.

    Cons

    For a "creative" company, atmosphere seems a bit sterile.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful of treating people with respect ... there's a definite fear factor at work that some in upper management seem to like to hold over people. This sense is emphasized by a lack of transparency with upper management decisions. Also, there's a definite boy's club atmosphere that many seem to play into.
