    I have been working at Lightbridge Academy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for this company for almost 5 years now. I have never felt more appreciated and loved anywhere else that I have worked. We truly are a family here.

    They stand by their core values and treat all of the families and staff members as if we were their own family. The staff here has become family to me, and most have been here with me for all of the 5 years here. This company allows you to grow, and become your best self.

    Cons

    The benefits are very good, 401 k (where they match up to 5%), great health benefits etc. but the initial annual salary can be higher.

    Advice to Management

    To never lose sight of the core values, and continue to live by them. The core values are what make this company the best company to work for.
