    I have been working at Lightning Bolt Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic Management (sales)
    Flexible
    Teaches work life balance to prospects and encourages the same principles for the employees.
    The office offers a great work environment
    The incredibly smart team!

    Cons

    Some internal processes could be streamlined but massive changes have already happened and others are currently in process.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Fun-loving employees, great culture. Employees work from home on Tuesday and Thursday - flexibility to manage their own time, without spending it on commuting to work - especially for those who live far from work. A lot of opportunity to learn - especially for a new graduate.

    Cons

    High turn-over rate - like most other software companies in silicon valley

    I worked at Lightning Bolt Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has great benefits, a good work-life balance and great coworkers. The team consists vastly of young, smart, hard-working individuals. The ones that are successful are the ones who know how to pave their own path and are able to put in the time and hard work to achieve their goals. The company provides a great work-life balance with the Tuesday and Thursday work from home days, as well as a great company culture. There are a lot of opportunities to work on new technologies and get first-time, hands-on experience in areas that interest you.

    Cons

    There is a lot of turnover in this company. I feel the turnover is due to the fact that there is little career potential for senior positions and many of the employees reach their full potential within a couple of years. The product is mainly driven by customer needs, and there is no real vision for the long-term product goal.

    Advice to Management

    Try hard to keep your senior people. They are the next generation of Lightning Bolt, and I see a bright future with these people.

    Great work environment and colleagues. The entire company works from home Tuesdays and Thursdays! Rewarding work in health care and exciting company expansion is underway and doesn't look to be slowing down.

    I worked at Lightning Bolt Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Strong product and a strong market for it
    - Good place for a young engineer or systems expert to learn a broad variety of skills
    - Consistent company growth (albeit slowly)

    Cons

    - Limited room for career advancement due to small size and slow growth
    - It's been a while since I was there, but there were definitely some difficult legacy systems in place that slowed development down. It sounds like this has improved some though.

    Pros

    There are a lot of learning opportunities here, a lot of technologies are used, a lot of projects are going on. Everyone can make a big difference.

    Cons

    There are not a lot of trainings. Everyone is very busy, need to pick up things by self. Not perfect for people who want to be taught of something.

    I have been working at Lightning Bolt Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Products and services rendered by Lightning Bolt Solutions are making a meaningful impact in Healthcare

    Cons

    The company is still growing which comes with constant change. It may not be the right company for someone who is used to large company culture.

    Advice to Management

    I think the management knows this already but the company will need to add more marketing and sales staff to get the word out about its offering.
