    If you look up an example of a hostile environment, you will see Bright Lights USA.

    ProsYou can work a lot of overtime, the reason being that you are expected to do the work of three people.

    ConsThe owner feels the need to check everything you do, E-mails are read, commented on. If you do something right, you will hear nothing, If you do something wrong, you will never hear the end of it. Low pay, poor morale and a lot of favoritism towards certain employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSee how other companies are managed. Let people do their work and learn to trust your employees.

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

    Great place to start your career.

    Project Coordinator (Former Employee)
    Barrington, NJ

    ProsOpportunities of education reimbursment. Almost unlimited overtime available for a majority of positions.

    ConsSubjective treatment of employees. Lack of benefits, and low compensation provide for a higher turn-over rate of new hires.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are issues of 'micromanagement' which need to be addressed as most senior management throughout the company does not see eye-to-eye, and lower managerment and subordinates seem to take the blame of this misdirection.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
