  1. "Improving"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Medford, OR
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Medford, OR

    I have been working at Lighthouse Worldwide Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are alot of great people working here and for the most part management listens to what you have to say.

    Cons

    Management can be very bad at conveying what they want.

    Advice to Management

    Work on your delivery when telling your team what you want.

    Pros

    friday breakfasts
    ok pay
    the fun of seeing inside a cult

    Cons

    The CEO is a known cult leader
    the board are all members of the cult
    office politics are predatory
    very little respect given to employees
    they will work you to death and use you up then dump you on a whim

    I was hired to create management systems for the company. Once that was done they laid me off and touted that they were using the management system on their web page but in reality its all a show. Everything they do is smoke and mirrors. Even the technology they use in their products is bogus and produces stray counts that they simply calibrate out of the machine so the user is none the wiser.

    All the positive reviews for this company are generated by the cult members to offset peoples real experiences.

    I worked at Lighthouse Worldwide Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Free breakfast every Friday.
    Good insurance benefits.
    A generous number of paid holidays.
    Lots of really nice people.
    Barbecues and luncheons every few months.

    Cons

    The Friday breakfasts do not make up for the stress and frustration created by the leadership's lack of integrity. Not only does the executive team not know how to truly lead, but they also neither discipline poor performers nor reward top performers.

    If you want to be fairly paid, feel valued as a person and as an employee, and be recognized and rewarded for your contributions, run fast and far away from Lighthouse Worldwide Solutions. It is a house of cards built on a cult-ish foundation with an actual "inner circle" of people who appear to have pledged their lives to the CEO's self-serving aggrandizement cloaked in false humanitarianism.

    And if you manage to survive in this climate for 10 long years, don't expect any compensation for your loyalty. All you'll get is a cake and a big hunk of glass shaped like a water droplet (or is it a tear drop?). There won't be any increased vacation days, or any additional 401k matching, or any bonuses, or anything else to reward you for all your contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Learn what true leadership means and hold yourselves accountable first and foremost. Then, learn how to communicate value to your employees in a way that is both sincere and tangible.

    Pros

    Nice seeing departments work together to resolve issues for common company goals, instead of blaming each other. I don't understand the negative comments about politics, as this is probably the least political company I have ever worked. Some other employers the politics you do matters more than the work you do, but Lighthouse is the opposite. Also, opportunities to advance in a growing company, if desired.

    Cons

    Want more company get-togethers, fun to see everybody.

    Advice to Management

    Nice to see problems solved by finding the root cause and fixing, without blaming or scapegoating the cause. Please keep this!

    I worked at Lighthouse Worldwide Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Flextime, casual dress, occasionally there are catered lunches and you are allowed to listen to music via headphones while working.

    Cons

    Instructions/expectations are given verbally and often change hourly, no reviews, no raises, management remain tightlipped or reveal false promises. Extremely political and cliquey environment - bears similarities to middle or high school. If you're a hard worker you get selected for overtime while the incompetent do not; if you are a technician and you suggest an improvement for a product or procedure you are NOT compensated. You have to sign a terribly restrictive contract and relinquish certain rights which are not limited to; forbidden to work in similar industry for one year after employment ends, either voluntary or involuntary.
