    Pros

    Great place to work and excellent benefits. For a large company it is very entrepreneurial. They value process improvements and most roles will have you home by 6:30.

    Cons

    Like any large, American insurance company, changes are slow. That same entrepreneurial attitude can hinder internal communications between departments

    Advice to Management

    Based on stock performance over the last three years, keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    At least 40 hours/wk, OT opportunities, could work remotely from home.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, and an executive leadership team that appears to care about employees. There is a strong commitment to building a diverse workforce and it appears that there is genuine commitment to employee engagement.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, like any larger company they struggle significantly. While there are some business areas that are trying to strive to develop a Nimble and responsive culture, the overall commitment at LFG is lacking. Technology and tools needed to effectively service customers and internal employees and decision making are lacking.

  7. Ok but not great.
