Great team and office culture
Mgr of Americas-West Project Management Division (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, WAMay 12, 2016
The overall teams spreading across IT/Dev, Operations, Sales and Product collaborated and were very team oriented and supportive. The great team atmosphere made daily life at work a welcoming and family environment. Unfortunately, high turnover, consistent understaffing kept stress levels high and work levels unmanageable.
Pros
Team, Office Events, Culture, Interdepartmental Relationships
Cons
Mangement, High Turnover, Lack of Growth Opportunities, Salary and Compensation

Client Operations Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Marlborough, MAFebruary 10, 2016
The people make working in the business much more bearable. A decent job to get out here and pay the bills.

Management needs to listen to their staff and set realistic goals.

Great place to start out of college but not much advancement opportuntiy.
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Warren, NJOctober 18, 2015
Fun place to work which helps with a stressful environment.
Many new grads who get exposed to a lot of real life work quickly and constantly.
Numbers are the focus so performance is key.
Large company red tape and structure but smaller offices, work from home opportunities allow a bit of flexibility.
Pros
Free coffee and snacks
Cons
Not much room for advancement. Raises based on performance of company.

Great place to visit but....
Senior Project Manager (Current Employee)June 21, 2011
I've enjoyed my time at Lightspeed and have learned a great deal. With that said, it can also become very stagnant with very little changing from the management side due to it's relationship with it's parent companies. If you are starting out in your career, and are a fast learner, you'll love it here.
Pros
great middle management
Cons
no real career advancement
