    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.

    Pros

    Location in Greensboro is great. The building is located downtown, so far access to eating and activities.

    Cons

    The company likes to start projects and put people in charge who have no idea what they are doing. Your duties may literally change from day to day based on trial and error.

    Advice to Management

    It may be beneficial to work kinks out amongst each other before pushing policies out to the employees. That way there is no question of why things are being done one way in some areas and another way with employees in the same area.

    There's really no point.
