I have been working at Castlight Health as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Great environment to gain experience. I have been given more tasks and responsibilities to help expand my skill set and attributes.

Cons

Need more experience for certain positions. Those positions are better suited for someone that has at least a little more experience than the duties of "intern work."

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more fast-track training programs for early advancement.

    I have been working at Castlight Health full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good people who want to be a part of the mission

    Cons

    It's a mess under the hood. Not enough has been invested in engineering and operations, which is ultimately what will benefit customers and the end product. Management only cares about selling...unashamedly.

    From a career perspective - respect and career advancement are based on pedigree, not talent. Professional development is a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prove that Gio's telling the truth when he says he's not all about "catering to the Street". It doesn't take a lot to see what's not working; slow down the vaporware selling, and give the talented teams that you're lucky to still have working for you a chance to do what they need to do to help you attain and keep your customer base. You don't see it, but things will unravel soon if you don't take care of your people and your product.

    Odd Cultlike Vibe

    I worked at Castlight Health

    Pros

    CLH is on a mission to fix the country's broken healthcare delivery system. Big clear challenge, big clear mission.

    Cons

    Belief in the mission is weighted far more heavily than execution. Pedigree is way more important than performance. There's an odd cultlike vibe to this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The first step in the 12-step program is admitting you have a problem. Insurance companies are not going to share their data with you. What's your plan? Also, all the hugging at work doesn't make you special and just isn't appropriate.
