    I have been working at LSI Industries full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free Parking Free water and coffee

    Cons

    Bare minimum benefits - hardly competitive when compared to any progressive company. Incompetent HR department. Complete lack of training for new hires. Lack of communication between departments - additionally, a lack of SOPs. COVID: Employees were allowed to work from home, until Ohio lifted its mandatory stay at home order, after which all staff was required to report back to work - despite increasing COVID numbers and risk. Factory workers were not furloughed or allowed to stay at home, and required to report in, without temperature screenings or any PPE offered by the company. Of course, they were not compensated with hazard pay either. Additionally, amidst a financially unfavorable year, 3 rounds of 2-week furloughs, multiple lay offs, the removal of 401K matching and PTO for all employees, 5 executives were awarded $500,000 in bonuses -$200,000 of which went to the CEO Jim Clark. The executive bonuses were awarded despite the company falling $30 million short of its target sales goal. Meanwhile, no employees have received any bonuses to date.

    Pros

    Most people were very friendly, Lots of long term employees, was able to do multiple things during the day so most times it went fast.

    Cons

    HR Department was the worst starting with the management! Many people were afraid to have interaction with anyone in the department. In the department I worked it was a very hostile work environment and when you try to get help, you are the one that gets "talked" to! Executive management was a joke, they would say they were making things better and it turns out it was worse. Surprised they are still around.

    Pros

    - LSI has a long 40+ year history in the market and a 30+ year history as a publicly traded company. - For our size of company it has a healthy financial performance, one that has low debt to cash ratio allowing the company to reinvest in itself and in their employees. - The company is constantly improving to create a better operational and administrative experience by remodeling spaces, redesigning work cells and flows. - Company has a great ambient with little to no stress being a place with people willing to collaborate, improve yet a place were the status quo can be challenged. Last, if your looking for a place where you can maximize your talents, were your not just stuck in your lanes because you're a solution driven and whether your down in an operational line, an engineer or like myself in a financial role, LSI is a great place to work.

    Cons

    Need to improve in family healthcare cost to employee. Provider is great but expensive.
