    Pros

    Always busy always learning. Great company and great staff that are hardworking and dedicated. Comfortable work environment and good technology. Employer always gets you the tools needed to do your job.

    Can't think of too many cons. Always plenty of work to do so we are never bored. Rather be working so day goes by than not work.

    Pros

    Very few, if any. There is overtime if you want it. Some guys work 60 hours a week.

    Cons

    Pay is very very low, making overtime necessary. Zero benefits. No medical, no vacation until after 6 months. Hostile work environment. Half of your coworkers are ex cons which is how they get away with low balling your pay. Getting screamed at by coworkers and management is normal. Intimidation and lies is the managing style. Don't believe a single word in the interviews. Nobody has ever gotten a review and raises are usually 25 cents to 50 if you're lucky. Very high turnover rate. Nobody lasts longer than a few months. Poor morale, unorganized, everyone tries to cover their own butt and throw you under the bus. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Favoritism is useless. Start asking the operators what the issues are instead of people behind the desk when it comes to quality. The past few years is a good example of it being as good as it's going to get with the way how it is managed.

    I have been working at Bright Lights USA full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There 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.
