      Pros

      The Management really care about their employees, fellow co-workers look out for each other, weekends off, opportunities for overtime pay.

      Cons

      Parent Company often miscommunicates and tries to blame most of their failures on the employees of L&M, last minute appointments through TMS are always possible, tendency for over scheduling on clients’ ends, heavy workloads for a small staff.

    3. 4.0
      Current Employee, less than 1 year

      Excellent People and Culture

      Apr 19, 2021 - Senior Finance Executive in Chicago, IL
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Wonderful culture, people really come together and are working collaboratively towards a shared goal. British company less concerned with the daily stock price than a US-based company. Looks at the long term stability and sustainability.

      Cons

      Although not a huge company, it is at time slow to make decisions creating periods of uncertainty. A lot of emphasis has been places in improving data rigor however it is a long process to revert 20 years of lack of investments in systems prior to Nick Hampton joining the company.

      Pros

      Compensation, equipment experience, fast pace most of the time

      They don’t involve you in meetings or anything in that nature as you are not an employee of theirs. Won’t hire you on unless you have a PHD

      Pros

      Fairly stable, colleagues are arguably the best part of working here, work/life balance is okay (it is what you make it)

      Cons

      High turnover, limited growth opportunities, no time to develop/learn skills due to how lean things are kept (e.g. no technicians)
