    I have been working at Sightlines full-time

    Pros

    VERY smart colleagues who care, work hard, and want to continually get better. Our company culture is very sincere, hardworking, and fun. There's a long-standing commitment to improving the experience of working here.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Sightlines full-time

    Pros

    mostly nice people
    lots of opportunities to travel, if you like

    Cons

    pay is far too low, company culture is not inviting of outsiders, innovation is not appreciated, leadership is insulated from the real world, and there is a lack of transferable experience, and too much in-breeding

    Advice to Management

    pay more and get outside expertise; either train your directors, or hire directors who know what they're doing; recognize employees for their contributions; and pay more
