    I have been working at LGM Financial Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company logo, should also stand for Let’s Give More to Customers and Employees. Truly great place to work, genuine, welcoming and caring all the up to the CEO Adam Hill which is so down to earth and inspiring. Not only are the benefits great, some are quite unique, which even go beyond those of large companies. The company truly values and invests a lot in staff training and Career Pathing.

    Cons

    Honestly, none that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing!

    Pros

    LGM is a nice company that treats their employee well. They have good benefits and give back to the community.

    Cons

    The software development department is lacking in direction. They were building a new in house system, but they kept the tech team isolated from the users of the system. It was unclear if what was being built would be useful and if it was going in the right direction. The pay was also much lower than I had experienced in other positions.

    I have been working at LGM Financial Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fast-paced, lots of opportunity to take on new projects if you take the initiative. It's an exciting industry with lots of innovation, meaning evolving priorities and projects. The great company culture and authentic passion for giving back among the Senior Leadership Team and employees is what initially drew me to apply. CEO is very ambitious with very exciting long term goals for the company. Great benefits with flexible hours and working remotely opportunities. Beautiful, award-winning office space.

    Cons

    No cons to share!

    Advice to Management

    Keep insisting on feedback from employees.

    I have been working at LGM Financial Services full-time

    Pros

    I've been really impressed with my first few months here. I appreciate how the senior leadership is present and active; they shared our results and goals with the whole company at the annual town hall. The CEO is a very inspiring leader. The work-life balance has been fair thus far, and I feel the company invests in their employees.

    Cons

    - Some processes could be re-worked for more efficient operations
    - Don't have all the tools/control needed to be able to do my job as productively/efficiently as I could.
    - Information silo's are present between departments (although less-so than at previous organizations I've worked at).

    Advice to Management

    - Keep investing in automation and technology
    - Keep the transparency high by continuing to share plans and goals with everyone internally

    Pros

    Many Pros: the people are wonderful, the office is gorgeous, and the work is rewarding. The perks and benefits are fantastic and the CEO practices what he preaches and truly believes in the core values of Respect, Integrity, Giving Back, Service Excellence and Continuous Learning.

    Cons

    Stressful at times with long hours. A sense of urgency is always expected though not always possible.

    I have been working at LGM Financial Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    LGM is one of the best companies I've worked for. The culture is fun and informal with a professional business ethic. We work well together and support open communication. There are endless projects to get involved in. Your growth is largely up to you (depending on your area within the company). The management in my area is very involved, holding monthly and quarterly one-on-one meetings where we address issues as well as build the relationship between manager and employee. Expectations are high and we continuously meet or exceed them. It feels good to be a part of something that I'm proud of.

    We have several annual parties and team-building events, including giving back days, departmental breakfasts, costume days which makes me feel very bonded to my team. Our office space is beautiful with 2 patios and a large kitchen, which we're always using for social gatherings.

    I've found my work-life balance is encouraged by having a regular schedule with overtime only when necessary, the health and wellness allowance, and the encouragement to give back to the community via 4 Giving Back days per year.

    Cons

    One downside is out of LGM's control - the industry. LGM's goal is to change what has traditionally been the consumer experience around buying a vehicle or buying a warranty. I believe we are honest and provide benefit to those that purchase our products, but perceptions still have a curve to overcome in terms of reputation.

    Another downside is salary. There is a large disparity between departments and roles. Increases per year are modest at best.

    Lastly, the company growth is sometimes faster than we're able to keep up with. This is, of course, not necessarily a bad thing, however it can be frustrating to have priorities constantly up in the air.

    Advice to Management

    Management could benefit from understanding the day to day tasks that make up the bigger picture that they see. I believe the work we provide to internal and external customers directly impacts LGM's ability to win business and maintain relationships. As a member of a cost centre, I would like to see that recognized to the same degree as other departments.

    Other than that, I am a huge LGM fan. Please continue to learn from us and grow us into the cohesive team that we are!
