    I have been working at Greenlight Digital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Enthusiastic, talented group of people. Who are all leaving.

    Cons

    No development opportunity.
    Constant lies about bonuses which never appear.
    Dreadful micro-management.
    No faith in the talents of the staff.
    So called 'perks' are all being taken away.
    Different interpretation of rules for different departments.
    General toxic atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Value the people you have. There are some wonderful people there but they are leaving because of how you treat them.

    I worked at Greenlight Digital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    some nice people there and some real talent in the team.

    Cons

    The CEO/owner/founder is not easy to work with. Senior Management were all pulling in different directions which made working there almost impossible.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO is always right - (even if he isn't - if you get what I mean)!
