I have been working at Sea Gull Lighting full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – Large company, long history in the lighting industry, competitive compensation. Parent company has a positive financial outlook. People are hard working and conscientious.
Cons – Transitioning from family owned to corporate culture. A lot of consolidation and downsizing. Jobs are being moved to corporate offices in the chicago area. Consolidations are always difficult, but sometimes necessary.
Advice to Senior Management – Management should make sure to always value the contribution of all employees. During times of downsizing, sometimes valuable employees are terminated for various, sometimes seemingly random, reasons.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Sea Gull Lighting
Pros – Ability to set own schedule.
Cons – Micro-managing regional managers, NO product, NO support staff, Out of touch Senior Management. Started out very well, and then went downhill fast after acquired by Generation Brands. Generation Brands went through bankruptcy, and was never the same after. Customers lost confidence, company couldn't ship product because they didn't have any, and it took forever to get even the most simple requests done by the corporate office.
Advice to Senior Management – Sell the company, or put it out of it's misery!
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
