    I have been working at LGM Financial Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are amazing, location and facilities are second to none, work is engaging and broad, culture is rich and super fun, compensation and benefits are well above the mean and a more casual work environment means that overall it's an absolute pleasure to come to work everyday.

    Cons

    Not that it's a true con but you have to hit the ground running and be able to go the distance. This is all relative though and it balances out with the environment and culture... we work hard and play hard at LGM!

    Advice to Management

    More social activities/engagements - this will help to further build those bridges between departments.

    Pros

    After spending 8 years working in a dealership I wanted a new challenge in life. I came across LGM and it offered me a new opportunity to grow both professionally and personally. The culture in LGM is team oriented and they're always looking to innovate in the automotive world. They recognize top performers and will help you achieve your goals. This is achieved through continuous education allowances, mentoring, and career path planning. If you're a driven individual looking to take the next step LGM can be the perfect fit. Joining LGM was the best career choice I've made. I would recommend anyone looking for a change in there career to apply and see if LGM is right for you.

    Cons

    Located in Coal Harbour , it can present challenges commuting into the city. They're close to the Sky Train, West Coast Express, and bus routes. LGM focuses on providing its employees options for a healthy work life balance. I look forward to seeing LGM continue to adapt to the needs of its employees.

    I have been working at LGM Financial Services (More than 5 years)

    Nothing comes to mind. Therefore I have nothing to say.

    Pros

    - Strong culture of collaboration/employee development and being part of an exciting future
    - Leadership: open to feedback/invested in the success of the overall company/cares about employees
    - Generous benefit package: vacation/personal days off/paid volunteer days
    - Top notch working environment (ergonomic desks for all employees/2 patios/games in lunch room) downtown Vancouver.

    Cons

    LGM is working hard at nurturing a culture of high engagement, and as such has being recognized as one of Aon Hewitt’s the Best Employers in Canada.

    I know this review may read too good to be true, but I have been in business for over 20 years and can truly appreciate what LGM does offer to its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on:
    - creating open/frequent communication opportunities with your team
    - sharing your vision of your division/organization future as we continue to grow
    - promoting a culture of frequent and honest feedback (from employees to you in management)
    - coaching your employees around their personal development and how their skills and personal contribution contribue to the big picture

    Pros

    The people and we have first-class, state of the art work environments.
    Our core values. Our core values are present in everything we do. We don't just put our core values on the wall, we live them!
    We move as a very fast pace, change is always present.
    We have made training one of our biggest priorities.
    The "perks" are too many to list.
    We have very little employee turnover.

    Cons

    Our processes haven't kept up with our growth.
    We move at a fast pace, change is always present. We are constantly under the gun of tight deadlines and quick turn-a-rounds.
    We have very little employee turnover.
    Work/life balance, for some roles, is difficult to attain.

    Advice to Management

    I don't suspect they need my advise, as I feel we are working on the right things, including: training, customer experience improvements, and updating and refining our processes. HUB will allows us to move forward with the IT infrastructure necessary to stay competitive for many years.

    Pros

    It is a great company to work with, as leadership cares about the employee and the community. It is open, fair, challenging, and also very rewarding environment. It is fast paced and agile in moving forward new initiatives. Leadership encourages the innovation so that resources can become more creative. The working environment is very nice (ergonomic). You can find very few local companies that can matche LGM.

    Cons

    As LGM is very fast paced and agile in IT and business, it might require more diligent on documenting the processes, changes and future initiatives. Without existing knowledge documented, it might requires more time and cost to reinvent the wheel, which is not efficient.

    Advice to Management

    Great leadership style that really connects with the employee - talk to employee very frequently, BBQ events, social events, gives the regular business updates, etc. Keep up the excellent work and Go LGM Go!
