    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 worked at LGM Financial Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - admirable president
    -flat organization
    -great culture (sliding over the last year or two)
    -nice new office and awesome cafeteria, BBQ on patio, game room
    - gym in the building
    -downtown hub
    -proprietary products

    Cons

    -several great top execs have been replaced with stiffnecked ones who do things ONLY their way
    -change in top management waterfalled into lowered moral
    - after a huge revamp of software, budgets got cut, and so did fun, great people and perks
    - remote work was eliminated by new CIO, adding extra duties with no extra pay, extra hours and more stress
    -very skinny benefits with low maximums

    Advice to Management

    To support the culture you ones had, you need to replace the stiff neck execs with the open minded flexible execs. If not, you'll lose more and more great folks that made LGM LGM!

    Great benefits working conditions and overall great people. Growing rapidly for lots of opportunities to develop and advance.

    Cons

    Real Opportunities to advance only in Vancouver. Surprising when their ORM clients are all in Ontario. Discouraging when relocation is not in the cards for the family.

    Advice to Management

    Expand operations in Oakville to help people who will be ready to do something else after being 18-24 months in their current position.

    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
