What do our employees say about working at LOMAD and the management?
Employee to Supervisor:
“Thank you both for making this a great place to work… Great leadership makes for eager, useful, and happy employees and the leadership I have experienced here is the best.
I’m very grateful for you allowing me to grow with your firm”
Employee to Supervisors:
“A little more than seven years ago, Melissa thought she might need a “part time” staff member. She put some feelers out, and those feelers found me through an attorney I used to work with (who may have had an inkling that I was unhappy where I was).
I had a great phone interview with Melissa and then a fantastic in-person interview. During the in-person interview, I met James, who accused me of taking a shower, dressing too nice, and possibly being too nice to work for them. LOLOLOLLL! It was effortless – the conversation, the banter, the atmosphere.
After those interviews, I made the life-altering decision to give notice to my then employer. It was an easy decision to make, as I had been unhappy there for a LOOONG time.
When I was hired (full time, by the way), there were five attorneys and three staff members (including me) – 8 of us. We now have 35 employees in total (including our fearless leaders). It’s not very often that you get in on the “ground floor” of a company. I am so thankful to have had – and continue to have – the opportunity and privilege to witness both the growth and the growing pains. It has been the most incredible ride!
Melissa and James – thank you for taking that chance seven years ago in welcoming me into your work family! I said it earlier to Melissa, and I’ll say it again (because I mean it): I’ve loved you for seven long years!”
Employee to Supervisor:
“Seeing your response (and your email) honestly helps me to understand some things I’ve seen at your firm that I found baffling. Attorneys who are respectful to legal staff? A supervisor who checks in on his employees? Staff climbing over each other to take the blame for a mistake? How eerie… I’ve had a rather short career, but it seems like cultivating this kind of work culture starts with leadership.
So thank you for your work.”
Employee to Supervisors:
“Thank you! It’s not about the money (but it is) but you are both great bosses.
I don’t know what our new employee did and didn’t tell you, or what his/her former employer did or didn’t, but I know through the grapevine that our new employee’s experience was really bad there. When I heard he/she was looking, our new employee took some convincing to even apply because he/she wanted nothing more to do with comp. I told our new employee how great you both are as employers. About the culture you created. And that the reason I stayed in comp when I really wanted to pursue other employment was because of the awesome vibe I got from the firm. And how that vibe was correct.”
