    Run away from this company...Fast! HR troll tries to offset the bad reviews (some may argue real reviews) with good ones

    I have been working at Brightstar full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Pay
    2. Flex hours maybe
    3. Nothing else comes to mind and trying to fill this space for 20 word min

    Cons

    1. You have to sell your soul to the devil for the pay
    2. Health benefits are sub par
    3. 401K contribution is the lowest seen in my career
    4. Work experience will add nothing to your resume in fact lack of training or ability to do good work hurts you in the long run
    5. Top heavy org with little decision making bottom up
    6. B/C players with little/no experience outside Brightstar have been with company for 3-5 yrs are made Manager/Directors/VPs
    7. Customers are often looked upon as fools for paying the company a lot of money for poor 3PL service
    8. Real promotions are hard to come by but titles are gifted to everyone in the org to keep personnel happy.
    9. Acquisition by Softbank has left ppl worried for their jobs - no direction from mgt on what the future holds for many. Resizing of org coming soon.
    10. Customers are just waiting to exit in Q2/Q3 2014 once acquisition is complete
    11. No training/ on boarding procedures that leaves most ppl fending for themselves
    12. Leadership - what leadership?
    13. Education reimbursement - benefit offered is a joke!
    14. Many people leave within 2-3 yrs due to burn out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees...who am I kidding? Nothing can help this place survive.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
