Pros: there are some smart, knowledgeable people at lpl
Cons: stressed out, myopic, harsh, negative manager, no cube/space to work
I would like to be able to say nice things about LPL. However, experience there was worst ever. May be due to the technology dept I worked in and that manager, than overall LPL where I met nice people.
My second day there I was told that 2 people right before me had quit the position I was just hired for; I did also shortly thereafter. Wish I had knew – more... that before I started and would have accepted one of the several job offers I had. Two other people that worked with that dept had quit just the month before. It was a small department. Highest turnover!
Fact: I was told to lie and cover up for major mistakes that affected successful implementation of project I inherited at the end of the project from my manager for key external customer. The reason there was a problem was due to management, lack of communication, lack of best practices for technology process.
Rather than fix the problems quickly and make client happy, manager wanted to pretend solution was OK when it was glaringly obvious that the project that was worked on for 6 months before I arrived was not what the customer wanted. The customer was furious. And it was a relatively simple project!
It is likely that people quit due to lack of integrity and poor treatment by this particular manager.
My manager was very nice in front of other people; negative, harsh, bordering on psycho behind closed doors. People usually quit a manager not a company. This manager needs some serious training in ethics, integrity, working with people effectively. – less
