    New CEO - Hoping for a big turn around

    No Comment (Former Employee)
    Melbourne, FL

    ProsLoved the products, people and company vision

    ConsPoor financial decisions, no consequences for bad decisions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI hope the new ceo (as of November 2013) will use his experience as a turn around consultant to fix the major financial deficits facing this company. Moving everything offshore is not the answer and I hope the company stays in Florida and maintains its culture and vision.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Trying to make the big chances in lighting worldwide

    Embedded Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Satellite Beach, FL

    ProsIt's a great mission: significant energy usage reduction can be achieved by switching from older less efficient technologies to LED lighting. There are some very smart people doing creative things at this company. Things are growing fast and furious. For the most part the employees are very nice and helpful to each other...it's a nice work environment. Also our headquarters is located in Satellite Beach, FL. Did I mention that we are 1 mile from the beach? I am an engineer, and have been extremely busy in the past (80-90 hour weeks with little in the way of breaks) but am currently somewhat slow with required work, and I have been given the latitude to explore other technologies and projects and I am grateful for this. In a more structured company I wouldn't be able to do this.

    ConsPolicies and procedures and sloppy and undefined which causes tension...you get the feeling that there is a great deal of unnecessary waste...ordering is sloppy, we buy things we don't need and make things we can't sell and then we find ourselves with millions of dollars in unusable inventory which weighs heavily on the books. After more than 10 years of operations in one form or another, we are still not profitable as of this writing. We are propped up by the investors of Pegasus and Riverwood and others. Riverwood has taken control of the key management positions recently: I hope they know what they are doing and will work in the company's best interests.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust make it work! We have been hearing that we are going to be profitable "soon" for many years.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
