    I worked at 1st Light Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent Pay Everyone is friendly Everyone gossips about each other Good ol boys club atmostphere (if you like that)

    Cons

    -Lack of management; -Constant lying to clients/customers/employees -Upper Management is self-serving - existis only to protect its employment status and does not progress the company -Lack of training for most positions leads to isolationism and lack of team dynamics between departments and even members within a department

    Advice to Management

    Management is not manipulating your customers and lying to them, stripping life savings from 93 year old widows, nor is it witholding paychecks because the company would rather spend profits on the owner's personal goods; Management is an actual business process and set of protocols that must be followed

    I worked at 1st Light Energy full-time

    Cons

    Not too much oversight, potentially too much carelessness by executives.

    Advice to Management

    Pull the reigns in a bit.

    Management is out of touch with their employees.

    Get to know your people
