Busy company with a lot of upside.
Pros: coworkers, management, pay, benefits, job duties, willingness to train, pay for education
Cons: hours, lack of structure due to exponential growth, understaffed
For the most part, I thoroughly enjoy working for L&W. The only issue I personally have with the company are the hours required. I have no problem working hard, but there aren't too many weeks I put in less than 60 hours. 50 is enough. Especially with a family.
The company likes to run lean, but it is bordering on too lean. I feel as though every department within the organization is understaffed and people are overworked, causing a higher turnaround than one would like to see. If one person quits a department (at least at the Tech Center), it causes a ripple affect through the entire department. The people who already have too much to do are now required to take on additional work that the person leaving will be leaving behind.
The last thing I've noticed is the lack of structure. The company has grown exponentially since 2009 and has not yet adjusted to being a large company. Upper management still runs it as though it is a "mom and pop" operation, but I am confident it will get better with time.
