    I have been working at Enlightened full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Ever have that feeling where you wake up - smiling and excited to begin the day? If you answered no - stop by Enlightened to see what we are all about. I wish I could tell you this is coming from some suited up marketing person - but it's not. This is coming from someone who genuinely finds deep value in joining a team that is positive, energetic and most importantly - ethical. People that come and go have many reasons for doing so. People that stay and find a home here know this is a team second to none.

    Cons

    Those who find themselves deeply entrenched in something they love and honor - call it "passion." If you have a situation where you are spending hours watching time go by and you are unhappy - then you might have a "job" or "work." Don't confuse time with toil and work with

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to push the company beyond its comfort zone. Never give up! No points for second place!

    Pros

    Supportive atmosphere, challenging work, fantastic coworkers, positive environment and a company that truly cares about the quality of work that it does and not just the quantity.

    Cons

    You have so many opportunities that its sometimes difficult to manage your schedule, it's definitely not your regular 9-5, however, I never wanted that so i wouldnt say its too much of a con.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management seminars and internal training that we do I find to be very beneficial. I know they do take time out of the work day but I would love to do more. Its great to be able to learn about the different departments within the company and how they all work together as one efficient machine.

    Pros

    Hours are good and no weekends.

    Cons

    No room for improvement and bosses don't care.

    Appreciate your good workers instead of just hiring new people. Also, give your people raises to know you care.

    I worked at Enlightened full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The pay structure is great. Although, no professional development; personnel- upper, mid & lower are very resourceful and helpful. The opportunity to be engaged in different projects is great.

    Cons

    As an employee, my compensation package was a pay check, and one is not given direct deposit to a bank account as an option. Hence, pay-checks are mailed out to employee's homes. However, pay- satisfactory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Options in compensation package could be improved as it is proven in most cases that a satisfied and happy employee is highly productive. Institute a professional development package if possible as well as the option for direct deposit in addition to mailing checks.

    I worked at Enlightened as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great dynamic of intelligent and innovative people, wonderful work atmosphere, extremely friendly and professional environment, the projects are very interesting and really make you think about what is possible. I feel like the company works well with people on all levels of their career and provides many opportunities to learn and grow in the field you are working in.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are long hours but it seems worth it for the feeling of accomplishment you get on completing a project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the management team is very respectful to the needs of the employees and I would hope that they continue to be as caring and considerate to their employees morale, health and well-being as they are now.

    Pros

    My experience with Enlightened, Inc. remains pleasant, educational and entails personal and professional growth. This is one firm that truly understands that employees' are the "blood line" of any organization. Hence, management at this organization strives to keep consultants satisfied and happy.

    Cons

    Although compensation is great, however, one has to wait two (2) pay periods; about a month prior to receiving the first pay check.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please alter structure on initial pay to an employee. While learning the nature of a particular job function and working to fulfill requirements and meet aggressive deadlines, a new employee should not be stressed or consumed with personal financial matters. Thanks,

    Pros

    Leadership inspires workers to empower themselves. Education, training and self development are at the forefront of Enlightened's growth. They are hiring. They are winning contracts. They are making all the right moves to push themselves further into excellence. 50% growth in the last year is no coincidence. That is the result of hard work and solid reputation. This will continue to grow as the team follows suite. Stay tuned for major changes as we skyrocket into 2014.

    Cons

    With so many positive changes - the only negative aspect is that it's easy to get lost in which path to engage. This requires a mature approach to self development and demands result driven leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never give up the fight. 2014 is the year of the warrior and Enlightened will charge the contracting battlefield with a small, but elite force.
