    Pros

    Great company to work for. Many opportunities for everyone in the company. The company truly lives by the company values. LYONSCG has unwavering commitment to the clients and employees. It is wonderful that the entire company "one team" will all go the extra mile for the clients and each other. Great to be on a team of the best and the brightest.

    Cons

    Intensity of the work. At the same time we are a work hard play hard group.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in the employees as you have done for many many years. It continues to pay off for the team and the many outstanding successful clients.

    Pros

    It may sound contrived, but you really are part of a team here. Everyone's contributions are recognized and you have every opportunity to have your opinions heard from the executive team to the front line managers. The work is challenging and stimulating, leaving you with the feeling that you've accomplished some great things. Plenty of company sponsored events, generous benefits like health club reimbursement.

    Cons

    Consulting isn't for everyone. It requires a person with the ability to pivot quickly from project to project or task to task. If that's not your thing, you may be more comfortable elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep doing what you're doing. You've built something great here where the team feels more like a family than just co-workers.

    Pros

    Good culture, and surrounded by a lot of hard working people focused on providing a good product and service to clients. Social outings as a company were always a good time! Good pay, decent benefits.

    Cons

    Working with clients who have online retail sites means the busiest times of the year are around the big shopping holidays, which can be a bit of a drain over time. Open floor plan is distracting at times.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management had a solid team while I was at LCG. Maintain your company's culture, and keeping making those sales so everyone can celebrate success often.

    Fun group of people, but the work is unrealistic

    Hire a professional executive management team to run the company

    Pros

    Lyons is an open culture where it is easy to know what is happening. Featuring a strong culture biased to clients leads to great customer outcomes and relationships. The executive management team is bright, courageous and has integrity. A rare find!

    Cons

    If you want to do the minimum or coast, you will not be happy here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and don't let the people who LYONSCG has had to separate from affect what you're doing despite some grumblings on Glass Door.

    Pros

    in-office perks and bonuses, shared recognition

    Cons

    long hours, poor real leadership, low pay for the time required, unequal rewards for achievement

    Advice to Management

    chasing profit will lose people's commitment in the long-run, I believe you guys must be fun away from work, but believe you take too much advantage of people for your gains and make others do your "dirty work" so you appear nice.
