    I worked at LCH full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits package, really is very good

    Cons

    IT hardware and software is literally a joke - very frustrating if you are on the dev / tch side of things . I never actually was fully provisioned with access to the right drives in a year and a half!

    Seemingly no meritocracy as certain IT product owners know nothing about their product) , are not technical and have no true interest in improving the systems ... ( eg storing master data source IDs in downstream systems is not something they are going to change even though it causes the majority of the daily incidents).

    Most people there happy to tread water rather than progress

    Advice to Management

    Managers should at least be able to perform the tasks that the people they are managing undertake, else they have no concept of level of effort that something requires therefore cannot understand how hard you are working.. then give you inappropriate review scores/ overload you or the polar opposite .

    Don't respond with "yeah well, we are a cliquey team" and "toughen up" when an employee comes to you with a grievance because you're friends with the subject of said grievance. Very isolating and upsetting. Said manager ought not be 'managing' the Salesforce product in my opinion.
