Senior Associate Consultant (Former Employee), Boston, MA – January 22, 2014
Firm no longer exists. Was a reasonably good place to work while it existed. Management consulting involves a number of interesting challenges. The firm itself was a bit chaotic, but the work had the potential to be quite interesting, and there was a good collegiality among the junior team.
Lack of Integrity, Intelligence and Client Concern
Senior Recruiter (Former Employee), Los Angeles – March 24, 2013
Pros: you don't have to work that hard
Cons: lack of client concern, manipulative business tactics
The one reason I left Lucas group is because it is, for lack of a better term, a "sleazy" company.
The first hour working there, I witnessed two recruiters lie to a potential client about their capabilities – more... without concern. You look at their website and it is like a great poster for a bad movie.
The headhunters are underpaid and seemingly need the money which hurts ethical conduct.
Picture the recruiting version of Glen Gary Glenross and there you have it. If you need some extra money, tossing resumes can be lucrative sometimes, but many of the people working at the Lucas Group are part-time waiters, but don't tell clients that which blew me away.
The one saving grace is that you don't have to work too hard, but then again that could be a negative. Work there at your own caution, but you won't feel good about yourself. – less
Senior Partner (Current Employee), Atlanta, GA – December 3, 2012
Pros: the commission structure, the trips, contests, it is fun!!
Cons: the emotional component with the candidates and telling them they did not get a job.
I chose Lucas Group as my employer because of the long tenured employees. There is typically a lot of turn over in the recruiting industry but LG has a lot of very tenured recruiters, which says a lot – more... about the firm.
It is 100% commission, which means that you determine how much you make by how hard you work. The management team is great, progressive and they have excellent training, tools, and systems.
The thing I love most about the company is the people, we work hard and play hard. – less

Lucas Group is a medium-sized company with a corporate staff size that requires plenty of coordination between departments and the field. I find this to be a positive. Everyone can have contact with the revenue generators of the company and make contributions to the company's future.
