    I have been working at Lighting Science Group

    Pros

    Infant new growing company with a great product line and has potential to be an outstanding business. Like any new business if you can endure the growing pains worth working for. Excellent as a short term employment.

    Cons

    Top heavy with no middle management. Requires excessive overtime especially for salaried staff. High turn over ratio. Most staff are with the company less than 1 year. Most assembly staff are temp employees with no guarantee of 40 hour work weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trim top level management and fill the middle gap. Focus and correct high turn over ratio. Improve local reputation of company, word on the street is company is a sweat shop. Improve appearance of working environment to attract talent.

    I worked at Lighting Science Group

    Pros

    Some very good people work there

    Cons

    Some very bad people work there. Take a look at their financials and the turnover rate at the upper management levels. Well managed and positioned companies do not regularly face these issues as Lighting Science does on it seems like a monthly basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let business people make business decisions. Let engineering people make engineering decisions

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
