    I have been working at Elemental LED full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My boss is incredibly supportive. I am trusted to do my job but he is always available when I need help. The executive team is beyond fantastic. They are warm, helpful and always acknowledge a job well done. Promotions are par for the course for those that hold themselves accountable, put forth the effort and embrace the culture. Team building events are frequent and fun. There is a true work/life balance and...

    Cons

    The computer systems are antiquated and complex. Most jobs are hard to learn but it's worth putting in the effort.

    Advice to Management

    Please invest in infrastructure, sooner than later.

    I worked at Elemental LED full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My last 3+ years at Elemental LED have been the most rewarding so far in my career. The company has an amazing culture. First, the CEO recognizes how important and valuable the employees are and emphasizes this with his team - it all starts at the top! On any given day, you might find the executive team in different departments having a laugh with the group or having the discussion that leads to Elemental LED’s next...

    Cons

    LED technology is constantly evolving, and the company brings in a lot of new products every year. Sometimes, staying scrappy and keeping up with the growth curve can be challenging!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on company culture as the company grows.

    I have been working at Elemental LED full-time

    Pros

    The company as a whole is a great team. Very welcoming to new employees and lots of fun events. Work life balance is the best I've seen. There are some opportunities to improve career as long as someone proves themselves. Executive team is not secluded from team, they are down to earth.

    Cons

    Even though executive team is not secluded from team, sometimes not receptive to opinions or suggestions which is very frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees; we know you respect us, that helps keep culture within company.

    The heart of the company lies in it’s commitment to foster an environment of growth and community. Leadership makes active strides for improvement, financially and culturally.

    None come to mind.

    I have been working at Elemental LED full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I've spent almost 10 years with Elemental working directly for the CEO. It has been an experience that has enriched my life and enabled my growth as a professional. I've had the joy of seeing my peers exceed and challenge themselves as well as the company. The cultural environment is borderless allowing for in-depth communication and the acceleration of ideas. Those for a true passion for self-development and...

    Cons

    Simple- This is not a 9-5 job, candidates who just want a job, who are not interested in self improvement and cultural engagement need not apply. I've seen more than a few uninspired employees quickly come and go throughout the years. Bring your A game!

    Advice to Management

    Hire passion and energy! Keep fuel in the tank.

    I worked at Elemental LED full-time

    Pros

    Will hire just about anyone with a pulse

    Cons

    Do you your homework, folks-- the CEO is literally out of Hollywood (he has an IMdb page), will make you believe whatever story he decides to tell about the company. Elemental does not have a clear business plan and the company's product line, industry focus, and target demographic will pivot constantly. This company couldn't hack it in the Bay Area with REAL innovative tech companies, so it had to move to Reno. ...

    I worked at Elemental LED full-time

    Pros

    The company has a cool and fun atmosphere and isn't uptight at all. There are some excellent people here with great experience, culture and maturity.

    Cons

    Some people should not be in management. I reported the controller of the company who is young and has no experience. Unfortunately, this person perpetuated hatred and really doesn't like many people in the company she took so many opportunities to talk negatively about others including several executives that I thought were great, smart and friendly people. Her lack of experience really came through and unfortunately...

    Advice to Management

    To the CEO you've got a very strong team clearly able to lead and inspire, set them free it seems like you get in their way far too much. Also stop telling everyone on a daily basis how great you are, stop the bragging about your money and stop being so conceded. It might help stop people talking behind your back.

    Thank you for sharing your perspective. It’s unfortunate that you felt this way about your experience at Elemental LED, Inc. Perhaps there was not a good cultural fit for you. That may be a reason why you are no longer employed with Elemental LED, Inc. Our CEO is very giving, ...

    I worked at Elemental LED full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Exciting, creative environment. Still has some of the elements of a "start-up" culture. Good opportunities for career advancement. A lot of social activities ranging from ice cream socials, to breakfast served by management, to summer picnics. CEO is accessible and cares about you as a person as well as an employee. Unfortunately, I couldn't join the company relocation to Nevada, but I'm excited about the company...

    Cons

    Typical growing pains of a company transitioning from a traditional start up to more mature organization: communication issues, some managers are better than others, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Work hard to keep your interesting culture where employees feel valued and like members of a family (I really liked the "Town Halls"). Continue rewarding employees with special recognition programs and internal promotion opportunities.
