I worked at Lighting Science Group

Pros

Some very good people work there

Cons

Some very bad people work there. Take a look at their financials and the turnover rate at the upper management levels. Well managed and positioned companies do not regularly face these issues as Lighting Science does on it seems like a monthly basis.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let business people make business decisions. Let engineering people make engineering decisions

    I worked at Lighting Science Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    LSG used to have a devoted and harmonious group of hard working employees, that acted like a well oiled machine to grow the company to its full potential. The promise of what LSG could do to improve life on earth, and the promise of products that had limitless potential was very real, once upon a time.

    Cons

    Eight CEOs later, the vision is lost, the family is gone. LSG had a chance to beat the big guys, but after many changes in direction and a lot of executive ego battling, Cree, Philips and GE have already caught up and passed anything LSG could have been.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest about the lack of future of the company with those that remain. Reflect on the lost opportunity for so many, and try to take lessons from these failures to any endeavors in the future so that hundreds of people don't go through this again.

  2. No direction. No more design work. LSG is just a sourcing company nowadays

    Pros

    Some talented people still remain.

    Cons

    Poor communications. It appears this company is preparing to close it's doors soon, or just resort to a skeleton crew to handle the sourcing needs.
