    Thanks for your review. I really enjoy reading comments from employees who "love" their work. That's important given how many hours/days/weeks/years we pour into our careers. It has to be meaningful and interesting to captivate our hearts and minds. It's true that we are busy ...

    I worked at LGM Financial Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is a company that really does value its employees. Not just with software development training, but communication skills training, emotional intelligence training and more. The company is committed to giving back to the community by encouraging employees to volunteer for 4 days of the week, paid! Everyone on the senior leadership team is approachable and willing to listen.

    Cons

    The direction of the business is changing rapidly and the company needs to change with it. This requires a lot of complex changes being made quickly, which means being pulled in multiple directions constantly if you're working in the Technology dept.

    I have been working at LGM Financial Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have been working at LGM for over two years. I have witnessed that LGM truly cares about people and their career. The HR team has great programms and trainers that mentors all leaders and mangers to have the best tools and trainings to lead their teams In technology department, as a developer we are free to innovate, bring new ideas and innovate and work on new technologies!

    Cons

    Sometimes there are a lot of things to do that all are high priority, however I haven't seen this to disturb anyones work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work of training the leaders and managers. Employees would appreciate more mentorship from skilled and trained managers.

    I worked at LGM Financial Services full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and extra benefits, downtown location

    Cons

    I worked 11 hours day to day but it was overlooked and no compensation, I received training from an impatient worker. Whilst they claim to be a top employee, it seems to be because of the hard work HR put into public relations.

    Advice to Management

    Do not mislead the employee into thinking they are in the right path if there is an issue.

    I worked at LGM Financial Services full-time

    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.

    Hello and thanks for your note on Glassdoor. Sounds like you are no longer with LGM and since I don't know how long it has been since you departed, it makes it a little more difficult to ascertain how recent these concerns are. About 18 months ago we launched the biggest technology ...

    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!

    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...
