    As a member of the Customer Service team I am empowered to be as involved as I want to be. There are opportunities to gain additional experience. Solid team environment with good people.

    Cons

    Transitioning to a new ERP environment isn't for everyone but again, if your seeking opportunities to learn they are here.

    Advice to Management

    ERP speed needs to be consistently faster.

    Pros

    Excellent Co-workers. You own your functional area and are able to make changes when needed. We used a process called EOS, entrepreneurial operating system which was great to be involved in. Good benefits package, 401k contributions, and competitive pay.

    Cons

    Owner was over the top somewhat controlling. Although greater vision was on paper was followed. Always changing.

    Advice to Management

    Great company but needs to stay focused if it want's to grow. If you want revenue to double then you need to act on the improvements that are discussed.

    Ongoing training and attention to improving. Values those with hard work ethics and discipline. Upper management that is open to suggestions that could improve work flow and allow for incredible customer device. Team members work together to achieve company goals.

    Pros

    Forward thinking company with a lot of motivated people. New ideas are welcome. Location is central in the Metro-Detroit area.

    Cons

    Clear directions were not always offered. Many employees feel obligated to work from home, and the hours can be long.

    Pros

    The company is small enough to personally care for it's employees but is still large enough to be a force in the market place. Good benefit package along with a family first approach to management.

    Cons

    With anything in life you have to have a positive attitude. Lighting sales is a tough market which can take an emotional toll on a sales person. You basically get as much as you put in here at Lighting Supply. A bad attitude will lead to tension in your role.

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work for any company, which is it is a close community of peers that are looking to one goal.

    Cons

    They are still trying to develop a larger market density which will come in time if the right decisions are continuing to be made.
