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

    Pros

    Half day Fridays are an enticing and excellent incentive. There is enormous potential to be a great company supplying quality products for the architectural lighting community.

    Cons

    Stumbling through cultural and business changes with not enough emphasis on employee value and individual performances.

    Advice to Management

    Consider valuing employees more and rewarding excellence, while maintaining accountability.

    I worked at Selux full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Half-Days on Fridays
    - The people there were great and easy to get along with. if they werent given a supervisory or higher roll.

    Cons

    - Almost Mandatory Overtime.
    - Couldn't Retain workers and downsized the department from what was 7 people to 2
    - When speaking to the Supervision/CEOs I had to remember that they cared nothing about you or your lives unless it pertained to the good of the company.
    - CEOs / Higher ups will Promote from within only if they can use you to preform under their beck and call.

    I left after a year due to negative work enviroment which caused a detriment to my health.

    Advice to Management

    It all starts at the smallest person and works its way up. If your smallest personnel are working their butt off then maybe you should notice them and make note of them.

    Pros

    Great Benefits and hours, growing company. Great employees.

    Cons

    Lack of organization, structure within upper management. Issues that are brought up which hold back Production and Engineering are continually ignored and not addressed. Lack of moral with employees in general, and in Engineering. Expectation to work 50+ hours for months at a time, asked to take work home on weekends,

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the teams which try to change and correct current issues, stand behind them rather than ignoring them. Company has a lot of potential if upper management can listen to its employees and try to build trust with them.
