disguised call center
User Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCApril 20, 2018
It is a good placeholder job. Leadership shows too much favoritism. Huge lack of communication, lousy training matched with buggy software and high expectations. Very stressful and not much support.

the most enjoyable- free lunch on Wednesdays and snack throughout the week.
Pros
benefits, culture, company values
Cons
leadership, communication, high turnover

Started out as great company to work for, but the company Castlight acquired and is now running the show, is not a compay I want to work for.
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  RemoteSeptember 28, 2017
There were months that I was over worked and other months that were balanced.

While I worked at Castlight, leadership was strong and empowering.
The Culture was very koom-ba-ya/family oriented. Communication was great and employees were expected to be transparent among one another.
Pros
Relaxed environment with a "get it done" attitude.
Cons
Unbalanced work load - Some teams were over worked while others didn't have enough work
