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.

    I have been working at Lighting Science Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company has Great Benefits

    Cons

    Top heavy with lack of direction, lied to employees about the future of the company. Did not respect the hard work and dedication of its employees and treated us as if we were a sweat shop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees the way you would want to be treated. All these MBA's and no direction or leadership skills.
