    My experience with Lightning Source was wonderful.

    Machine Operator (Former Employee)
    La Vergne, TN

    ProsSteady work, friendly management, excellent pay.

    ConsSometimes they forced overtime, but who doesn't need extra money.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the employees. they are the ones who do the work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Politics and crafty ways in lower management/supervisor levels.

    Pre-media (Former Employee)
    La Vergne, TN

    ProsGood pay, solid company, good upper management.

    ConsLost personality when it was absorbed by the parent company. Political under-currents within the department.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't give a supervisor power to squeeze their workers out if they have personal issues with them. Have them produce a more valid paper trail, then review it's legitimacy.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Equipment Operator - Production

    Equipment Operator (Former Employee)

    ProsVery relaxed atmosphere, good access to supervisors and upper management.

    ConsTerrible politics involved in advancement. Claims to promote from within, but all management positions are filled externally. Management constantly boasted about savings and profits, then gave out a 2% wage increase across the board, and eliminated annual bonuses. I experienced five 'permanent' schedule changes in a seven month period.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBusinesses that define new paradigms should not be under the leadership of a company that is replaced by that paradigm.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The associates were great to work with, not so much the management team though.....

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe work is easy, benefits good, people nice

    ConsManagement can be better, work is very easy and doesn't require much thinking on a persons part......if you like to be challenged and are looking for advancement then this is NOT the place for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe fair to the associates, and actually do the job you are being paid for, people will work for supervisors that actually work and not stand around all day talking and bs'ing with each other.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
