Operations Specialist / New Accounts (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – March 31, 2014
I processed the applications Third Party Investments Advisors during the morning. During the afternoon I do the Quality Check for off-shore processors. My co-workers are very nice and patient. They are always there when you need help. The hardest part of my job was making sure I didn't make any mistakes. The most enjoyable part of my job was everything. I enjoyed this job tremendously.
Great building and amenities and most associates are wonderful!
Registered Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Fort Mill, SC – May 22, 2017
I love the building and all the amenities (wellness center, full gym, cafeteria, outside living area) and most of the employees are happy here with great attitudes. They do push for job advancement, or career change within LPL, but the managers, IF you are a good employee, can make advancement to another department difficult, which can be understandable as they don't want to lose a valuable associate and have to retrain someone new. The bad side is LPL is notorious for layoffs, so you're never really 100% secure, but I guess you really could say that with any other companies also.
SENIOR BUSINESS ANALYST- PROCUREMENT (Current Employee) – Fort Mill, SC – May 18, 2017
A typical day would be located in the new state of the art building located in Fort Mill, SC. The company has a culture of continuous learning and personal development. While working at LPL I have learned to trust my intellect and take initiative on things out of my day to day job. The management team encourages and empowers employees to make decisions and take necessary risk.
Marketing Regulatory Review (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – May 18, 2017
The writing is on the wall... major culture shift in the last 18 months becoming increasingly micro in management style across departments. Company is undergoing a relocation to a new campus in SC. Career opportunities are limited unless you are there. As a result, lots of new hires with limited understanding of the business. A "buyout" offer was floated in the financial media last year. Putting two and two together, I'd say there is some turmoil within the firm. Used to be a fun place to work, unfortunately not any more.
Anonymous (Former Employee) – Fort Mill, SC – May 16, 2017
Good company but I would steer clear of GRC. Horrible management, extremely unprofessional. Deputy Chief Risk Officer is extremely abusive to all direct and indirect reports. Trust this review....don't do it. Try to join a different department within the firm.
Help Desk/Email Migration Technician (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – April 25, 2017
Beautiful new building. Lots of light. Motorized desktops (up & down). They pay employees well. I was there for a contract project, so... Lounge areas on every floor, with kitchen areas, big screen TVs, really inexpensive soft drinks. Cafeteria/restaurant on site. Food is sometimes great. Company gave pre-paid cards for use in cafeteria & Starbucks area. I never paid for anything. Had money left over when I left.
Enjoyed working for the Company - did not like the lay-offs
Custody Manager (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – April 24, 2017
Moved from managing the Custody Department to Inside Advisory Sales support. The last position was all phone support, with minimal supervision. Sales team expectations were extremely high. Upper Management was not focused on sales division, but rather operations departments, so lay-offs hit our department first when the market crashed in 2008/2009.
Work environment was excellent and fellow co-workers were as well. It was mainly the markets that can change everything in this industry.
I would still be working at LPL if it did not have such a bad management team at the time I worked there. I heard management is a lot better, I would not mind going back to work there since that was the only problem.
I worked here as a contractor for a few months. My first day on the job their were lay-offs. I should have taken that as a sign. My contract was ended abruptly. Great company but I would only work here if full-time status was offered.
Data Quality Management (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – March 16, 2017
Don't trust what you read here because LFG regularly gets bad reviews purged. I guess it's cheaper than treating people like human beings. Yesterday there were over 400 reviews, and what do you know, today their down to 200 with all the one star reviews deleted.
At least half half the employees are miserable, and a good deal of their workforce are temps trapped in temp jobs for years at a time despite being sold on temp to perm within a year or less.
