    I have been working at Lightning Bolt Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Advancements in your career and growth as an employee. I started out part-time, and I am now part of our management team. In fact, most management started at entry-level and have worked their way up. You're also given the opportunity to gain experience in other aspects of the company that you're interested in. If someone feels their position is "dead-end", then that's most likely on the employee.

    -Work-life balance is huge-- especially with the option to work from home. This is probably more of an outcome of the overall culture of caring for the employees. Any company should know that their employees are their most important asset, and Lightning Bolt embraces this.

    -Working with great people that you can learn from. You're surrounded by very intelligent and bright people who bring different backgrounds and experience with them. There are a lot of friendships here, and we all want to help make sure each other succeed. If there are staff who are detrimental to moral, productivity, and the overall culture, management will make sure to address it.

    -Easy access to management and the ability to have a voice within the company. All staff have one-on-one meetings with their managers. Anyone here can talk with the CEO if you want-- something I would've never imagined at my past positions.

    -The office has been great to work at! I know most of it has been built with suggestions and feedback from the staff, and it's always getting updated based on suggestions from the team. The pool table is easily the most used toy we have!

    Cons

    -There have been some bad apples who created a toxic environment for the team (I believe they've left some reviews here). I see this as a growing pain, but the company has addressed this as needed (thank you!).

    -Team hierarchies are still getting solidified. That can be tough as the team grows and the company tries to accommodate growth for the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep focusing on staff feedback and concerns. You've done a good job reinforcing everything staff like about the company, and it's great to see positive steps forward in being transparent about addressing concerns/feedback from the team.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lightning Bolt Solutions.

    Interview

    The group phone interview was uncoordinated and messy and there were several series of riddles I was given at different points in the interview process that honestly seemed excessive and unnecessary.

    Interview Questions

    • Dr. Pavlov trained his dog to run straight and accelerate exactly (increase speed by) 10m/s whenever the dog hears the bell sound. The dog is brought to a start of an infinite straight path with laser beams across every 100m. If crossing every laser beam causes the bell sound, and Dr. Pavlov personally gives the first bell sound, then:

      Will the dog accelerate infinitely or will stabilize at a certain speed?

      If dog’s speed will stabilize, what will it be?   Answer Question
