    Pros

    Great people to work with. Company is flexible with work hours. Sufficient vacation time. Seems to be taking good care of the employees.

    Cons

    There are no absolutely no perks. Growth opportunities are less. No program for developing careers of the employees. The human resources department lacks competency. They are not proactive in solving problems.

    Pros

    Good compensation during the good times
    Flexible working hours
    Initially part of an excellent team, went downhill due to re-organization

    Cons

    Poor long term strategy
    No diversification of services in the US
    Long term living under the axe of layoff
    Department head very weak
    Very little inter department collaboration, wrong people doing the wrong work

    Advice to Management

    Poor handling of lay offs, separation packages extremely weak, why hire sales when you get rid of billable staff, middle management very weak in certain departments

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers and good work environment (if you make an effort to get to know everyone)
    Ability to heighten and learn new technical skills from other workers
    Lateral structure for technical workers, which limits sense of superiority

    Cons

    Bureaucratic executive/management team with no insight to what the workers truly do
    Limited ability to advance in the company

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the recommendations made by workers who make money for the company
    Listen to employee's recommendations on assisting with achieving the research priorities set by the LR Foundation
    Diversify the management team as the majority is older, white, and male
    Focus on cross collaboration between the different streams (e.g. Marine, Energy, etc.) as this is a major gap in generating and sustaining new business and clients

    Pros

    Great history and good people huge potential for an inspirational leadership team.

    Cons

    Challenged to grasp markets, lack ability to drive innovation, a bit too old school, if not a non-profit, would be challenged to position in market with those that are. Managers are more focused on managing their world than the actual business they are in of the clients needs.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people that think out of the box and respect your experts. There are strong people working at Lloyds and given the opportunity they can transform the industry.

    I have been working at Lloyd's Register full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked at companies that said they supported a work life balance but LR really allows it. Even won an award for the programs in place. Fun Wellness initiatives, great benefits, generous 401(k) match, occasional autonomy, but most important to me is that it is OK for me to walk out the door at 5:00, the location is great and the people are fantastic.

    Cons

    All departments ultimately report to someone in London and they do not always know what is best for us in the US. Everything is very centralized. The early morning calls with London colleagues are tough too.

    Advice to Management

    If you surround yourself with only people from London or put London born people in leadership positions globally, you will not truly have a global organization. You are in many countries but you only hear "like" people saying "yes".

    Pros

    Nice work life balance, schedule flexibility

    Cons

    Only willing to promote men or people from the UK. A lot of those promoted come from BV and they are trying to turn the dept into BV

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your office, talk to your staff
